Are you getting as excited about Halloween as I am?! Halloween has to be my second favorite holiday, right behind Christmas.
With Halloween right around the corner, I have been CRAVING Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, so I decided I had to make my own homemade (healthier) version! Turns out, they’re super easy and simple to make at home!
1 & 1/2 Cups Vegan Chocolate chips
1/2 Tablespoon Coconut Oil
5 Tablespoons PB2 Powder
2 & 1/2 Tablespoons Water
Pink Himalayan Sea Salt
Note: If you’re wanting to make this even healthier, you can substitute Cacao Powder for Chocolate chips! I suggest doing about equal parts Cacao Powder and coconut oil if you do, and adding a bit of maple syrup to the Cacao mixture to sweeten it!
Heat the chocolate chips and coconut oil together until fully melted, and pour the first layer of chocolate into your molds! I personally love using silicone cupcake liners for my peanut butter cups!
Put your liners or molds into the freezer for about 5 minutes, or until the chocolate has solidified.
Next, mix together about 5 tablespoons of the PB2 powder with 2 & 1/2 Tablespoons of water. Layer a dollop of the Peanut butter mixture on top of your initial chocolate layer. I suggest putting them back into the freezer at this point so that they set up and solidify before adding the last layer of chocolate.
Finally, top the peanut butter with chocolate so that the peanut butter is fully covered and sprinkle with pink salt.
Pop them back into the freezer for another 5 minutes and then they should be ready to eat!
The Cups should stay fresh in your fridge for about one week, if they last that long, that is!
This recipe makes approximately 6 Cups.
