Easy Vegan Peanut Butter Cups

Easy Vegan Peanut Butter Cups Recipe

By Hot For Food

🔪Prep Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients

1 1/2 C vegan chocolate chips

1/4 C natural peanut butter

Instructions

1Line a muffin tin with paper liners or use a silicon muffin tray.

2In a double boiler, melt the chocolate chips until silky smooth. Put 1 teaspoon of melted chocolate into the bottom of the muffin liners and then spread it out evenly with your finger or a spoon. Refrigerate this for 10 minutes.

3Take 1 teaspoon of peanut butter and put that on top of the hardened chocolate. Don’t spread this out with your finger as it will settle itself and stay mostly in the centre. Refrigerate this for 10 minutes.

4If your chocolate has become sludgier while you were waiting, put it back on the double boiler quickly to re-melt it. Then take 1 to 2 teaspoons more of melted chocolate and put that on top of the peanut butter. The peanut butter won’t be super hard, but it will hold up for the rest of this process. If you’re rushed, you don’t necessarily have to put the peanut butter part in the fridge again.

5You can push the melted chocolate into the sides a bit with your teaspoon to ensure it runs down the sides to cover the peanut butter. This won’t necessarily happen, especially if you don’t refrigerate the peanut butter part, but I don’t mind them looking a little rustic and oozy anyway.

6Smooth the top of the cups if you desire, but they might just settle nicely on their own. Refrigerate this for at least 20 minutes before serving.
