Vegan Reese's Peanut Butter Cups

What you need: 

12 ounces vegan chocolate chips
Low fat creamy peanut butter, desired
Cupcake holders

What you do: 

I do not measure but this recipe does not really need measuring, it is more to your taste how much peanut butter and chocolate you want in the cups.
1) First slowly melt 1/3 the vegan chocolate chips in a small pot on the stove. Make the heat very low as not to burn the chocolate. It melts pretty quick so keep stirring and watching it.
2) In the mean time place the cupcake holders in a cup cake pan. When the first batch of chocolate chips has melted, spoon it into each cupcake holder and softly flatten it to cover the bottom. You only want a small amount for the bottom. Before it cools take a spoon and spoon some of the low-fat peanut butter into the center of each. Low-fat peanut butter is the best for this recipe because they add sugar when they remove the fat and it tastes most like the Reese's brand.
3) Melt the rest of the bag of vegan chocolate chips and then pour over the top of each peanut butter filled cup. You have to mold the chocolate with a spoon to touch the sides and cover the peanut butter. When done place the cupcake pan in the refrigerator for at least 1 to 2 hours. Then just enjoy!

Add some powdered sugar and vegan butter to the peanut butter, that will give the center a sweeter and creamier flavor. Yum. Great idea!



Thanks so much for the quick reply. I'm going to give them a try in a day or so and see how their shelf life is.  I asked the question as from time to time I make and give baskets of home made goodies as gifts, and wondered how far in advance I could make these.  This recipe looks so simple and you just can't go wrong with chocolate and PB!  Thanks again!


I did not let these wait a few days, I made them for my boyfriend who has been vegan for 15 years and we both missed them so much that we ate them all within 2 days:) hope this helps.


Hi, thank you for submitting your recipe. I have a question before I make these.  Can you tell me, because the chocolate isn't tempered, do these turn a little white-ish after a few days if not eaten right away?  Thanks!!!
