I have been receiving many requests lately for healthy treats. Some may say that Peanut Butter Cups covered in chocolate aren't healthy. But they are a lot healthier than what you find in the supermarkets. When you or your kids want something that resembles candy without the crazy amounts of sugar, HFCS, and artificial chemicals and preservatives, this is a great treat.
1 cup peanut butter (natural and creamy) 1/2 cup sugar 1 1/2 cups of vegan chocolate chips 1/4 teaspoon salt 12 paper muffin cups
Cut the top half of the muffin cups to where they are about half the original height.
Melt the chocolate chips either over the stove on low heat or putting them in a waterproof bag and dunking them in hot water. Using a spoon or paint brush spread the chocolate evenly within the muffin cups making sure you fill the crevices on the sides. Place the coated muffin cups in the freezer so that the chocolate hardens.
In a separate bowl combine the peanut butter and salt and fold in the powdered vegan sugar.
When the chocolate cups have hardened put the peanut butter mixture into the microwave for 1 minute. Wait a minute for it to cool and then bring out the chocolate cups.
Spoon the peanut butter into the chocolate cups leaving a little room for the top layer of chocolate. You have the option of putting the top layer of chocolate on now or after the peanut butter has hardened in the freezer. Both ways work just as well in my opinion. Place the cups in the freezer and wait an hour (or as long as you can.)
