This was actually going to be a peanut-only butter cups recipe, but I then decided to give it a chocolate-y twist.
And I think this turned out pretty great! The soft and velvety peanut butter layer with not-so-soft-but-OH-SO-DELICIOUS chocolate layer teamed up to make some really good butter cups.
The recipe requires only 6 ingredients – maple syrup, coconut oil, peanut butter, vanilla essence, salt, and dark chocolate.
As with most butter cups, there is no cooking/baking required (well technically, you do have to melt the chocolates). You’ll then have to fridge them for 3-4 hours.
The peanut butter layer takes a lot longer to set than the chocolate.
I filled and froze them in silicone cupcake molds. These are so neat!
All in all, this is a must-try recipe specially if you’re a PB, or chocolate lover (or both).
Let’s do this!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
Easy and delicious vegan chocolate peanut butter cups recipe
In a large mixing bowl, add maple syrup + coconut oil + peanut butter + vanilla + salt. Stir and combine.
Pour melted chocolate onto the silicone cupcake molds (around 1.5 tablespoons on each mold). Then pour peanut butter mixture (around 1.5 tablespoons) on top.
Transfer to your fridge and let it chill for 3-4 hours.
I used the double boiler method to melt the chocolate (instruction in the video). Alternatively, you can also microwave them for 15-30 seconds.
