Peanut Butter Cups


My boyfriend’s favorite candy is a reese’s peanut butter cup, but due to the dairy ingredients he hasn’t had one in a long time.  So I thought I’d make a special treat for him and our Christmas party guests this past weekend.  Seriously what’s better than peanut butter and chocolate?


Peanut Butter Cups
2 tbs coconut oil
12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 tbs almond milk
1/4 powdered sugar
1/2 c peanut butter
1 tbs vegan butter

Place paper liners in a mini muffin tin, set aside.  Add the chocolate chips and coconut oil to a microwave save bowl.  Heat in the microwave for 20 seconds at a time until melted, stir after each increment.  Place 1/2 tsp of chocolate in each muffin tin.  Put in the fridge until chocolate has set.  In the meantime mix almond milk, powdered sugar, peanut butter, and vegan butter until smooth.  Layer peanut butter mixture on top of the bottom chocolate layer.  Then layer the rest of the chocolate over the top.  Shake the tray gently to even out the chocolate, then place in fridge to set.  Bring to room temperature before serving.
