So, I decided to make my own vegan peanut butter cups. Being a health conscious vegan, it greatly appealed to me to make a treat without extra oil, additives, and sugars.
I basically melted some vegan/non GMO (Enjoy Life brand) chocolate chips in a double boiler with a splash of my chosen extract (like vanilla, mint or almond). With a small ladle spooned the melted chocolate into muffin/cupcake papers (actually used a muffin tin to hold the papers. Let the chocolate cool. Then spooned some room temp sugar free/salt fee/stabilizer free organic peanut butter and covered with another small spoon of chocolate. Not to pretty to look at, but I was happy to eat them without the added confectioners sugar and extra fattening ‘other’ stuff, often put into peanut butter cups.
Tastes SO good, and good for you too 🙂 Also was half the price of ‘store’ bought ones, and I had enough extra melted chocolate to make nut clusters (see next post).
Have fun with your delicious vegan treat making 🙂 Victoria
