The best friend makes homemade peanut butter cups for the Hubs every year for Chrismakkah. This year she made a dozen dark chocolate vegan ones for me and a dozen milk chocolate ones for him. His were gone in just over a week. They are SO good. And as I learned this evening, SO easy to make. And if you have learned anything on this blog, it should be that I LOVE easy!
I made some for the folks at work and some for the fam who are descending upon us this week. Going to guess they won’t last past the weekend.
Vegan Peanut Butter Cups
Melt your favorite vegan (non dairy) chocolate. (I did this in the microwave. Double boiler would also work great, but again. I’m lazy…)
Add about a teaspoon to your little wrappers (make sure they are solid enough to hold the weight of the melted chocolate, ask at the store if you aren’t sure) and push the chocolate up the sides until the entire interior of the cup is covered.
Toss in the fridge.
Warm a cup of all natural (organic if you have it) peanut butter. The ingredients on the container should be PEANUTS. NOTHING else. Stir it up (and you CAN add a few teaspoons of powdered sugar if you are so inclined) and spoon a teaspoon or so into each cooled cup. Toss back in the fridge.
Use the rest of the chocolate to add more to the top of each cup and make sure the topping chocolate makes contact with the edges of the cup to form a seal. Toss back in the fridge.
Thanks you BFF, but don’t think this lets you off the hook next year!
