Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

choc. peanut butter cups

Yep you heard it!...good ol' fashion chocolate peanut butter cups...well kind of. Of course these have no dairy and little sugar(depending on what you use), but they are still the same amazing treat! There really is nothing like the chocolate/peanut butter combo. I think everyone knows that. :) I found this recipe from Alicia Silverstone's book, The Kind Diet. So they are 100% vegan and I can't believe my eyes how good they taste! They are so rich that you really only need to eat one and it satisfies your sugar craving. (if you are anything like me). hehe. :)

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups- serves 12

1/2 cup earth balance butter
3/4 cup crunchy peanut butter
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup maple sugar or granulated sweetener
1 cup grain-sweetened non-dairy chocolate or carob chips
1/4 cup soy, rice or nut milk
1/4 cup chopped peanuts, pecans or almonds

Line 12-cup muffin tin with liners. Melt butter in small saucepan over medium heat and stir in peanut butter, graham cracker crumbs and maple sugar. Mix well. Remove from heat. Evenly divide mixture (about 2 Tbsp.) per cup. Combine chocolate and milk in another pan. Stir over medium heat until melted. Spoon over mixture in each cup and top with chopped nuts. Place in fridge for at least 2 hours before serving.
