Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

This recipe took a total of 20 minutes to make- including clean up! They require no baking as well. What could be easier than that!?

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup vegan butter or margarine
  • 3/4 cup crunchy peanut butter (preferably unsalted)
  • 3/4 cup vegan graham cracker crumbs or 10 graham cracker squares
  • 1/4 cup Turbinado sugar (brown sugar probably works too)
  • 1 cup grain-sweetened, nondairy chocolate or carob chips (I used vegan dark chips)
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 2 T chopped peanuts, for garnish (optional)
  • 1 T chia seeds, for garnish (optional)
  • 1-2 T ground almonds, for garnish (optional)
  • Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners or reusable liners

Directions: Melt the vegan margarine/butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the peanut butter, graham cracker crumbs, and sugar and mix well. Remove the mixture from the heat. Evenly divide the mixture, approximately 2 tablespoons per cup, among the muffin cups. Combine the chocolate and milk in another pan. Stir over medium heat until the chocolate has melted. Spoon the chocolate evenly over the peanut butter mixture. Top with chopped nuts and chia seeds. Place in the freezer for 60-75 minutes until firm.

I used both reusable and paper liners and I was delighted that both kinds worked fabulously and did not stick. They were easy as pie to peel off.

Of course I had to sprinkle them with chia seeds!

These are quite possibly the most dangerous vegan dessert I have ever made.

Definitely not your everyday indulgence (I imagine they are very high in calories!), but man are they awesome!!!!

These would be a huge hit at a party and would go like hot cakes. Mmmmmmmm.

Next time I would make these using a mini muffin tin as they are very rich!

My life as a vegan would now be complete if only there was a decent vegan cheese!

Those look sooooo good Angela!

Also, don’t dismay, there is good vegan cheese! I have a couple good recipes I made on my blog…. my fave is my nacho cheese recipe which is basically a cheddar taste and can be modified to make a dip, pasta sauce, etc.

Hi Angela

Those cakes look gorgeous!

Sorry if this hi-jacks the idea of leaving a comment, but I have followed your blog for while but never left a comment. I wish you shipped globars to the UK!

One time, I read about the books you’d read that changed your life – or at least your eating habits (although maybe it’s the same thing). Could you point me in the right direction please to find their names – as I can’t find them now!

Thank you.
