Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

I made a very small last minute batch of peanut butter cups for a holiday gift. I will definitely being making a giant batch soon! Caution: they are very addicting. I used this recipe from sproutedkitchen.com which also happens to be vegan. I didn’t have any almonds to make them with almond butter but will definitely try it next time. I winged it with whatever nut butter and dark chocolate I had at home. Peanut butter + dark chocolate + sea salt (on top) = THE BEST! The process is pretty quick and simple…

Melt chocolate down in a double boiler (mean is makeshift with two pots).
Pour a small amount of chocolate and swirl to line bottom of cupcake liners.
Mix nut butter filling ingredients, roll in small balls and place in center of liners.
Pour chocolate to cover filling, top with sea salt, and place in fridge to harden for about 30 minutes.
Then eat.



About Soup and the Clouds

I treasure the small adventures in life. Such as, listening to records, making jam from farmer's market produce, seeing new sites, eating the best tomato I've ever had, reading a good book, watching a film, appreciating a good font, going for a long bike ride or walking down a street I've never walked on before. The list goes on.

  1. Yum! It’s also useful that there is a peanut-free version of these as my son is allergic to peanuts. I’m adding these to my ‘to cook’ list.
