Vegan Peanut Butter Cups

I guess you really wouldn't call what I made "cups", maybe peanut butter blossoms, and peanut butter hearts. But semantics, its the same concept.

I bought these Ice Cube Trays at Ikea and they work great for chocolates. Alternatively, you could buy little peanut butter cup wrappers.

The kosher salt was a last minute idea. We ate those ones really quick and I didn't get a picture. The salt goes amazingly well with the chocolate and peanut butter.

Next Challenge Snickers.


  • 1 pound -- vegan chocolate (I used bittersweet, ran out and mixed in some dark)
  • 1 Cup -- Peanut Butter
  • 1/2 Cup -- Powdered Sugar
  • 2 splashes -- Vanilla Extract
  • Kosher Salt (optional)

In double broiler Melt Chocolate.


Place a couple granules of the kosher salt at the bottom of paper cups or ice cube trays if you are using them. Spoon in some chocolate. Using a little paint brush, brush the sides of the cups/trays making sure chocolate is covering them fully. Make sure there is enough room for the peanut butter and more chocolate on top. Place in Freezer.

While Chocolate is solidifying. Mix Peanut Butter, Powdered Sugar, and Vanilla in a bowl. You should get something the consistency of cookie dough.

Press Peanut Butter Dough into trays of chocolate, leaving enough room to be brushed with chocolate on top.

Coat the tops of the peanut butter, allowing the chocolate to fill in all the holes. Brush with a paint brush to make sure its coated well. Put in freezer.

Pop the chocolates out of the mold once chocolate has solidified. Enjoy.
