Equipment

  • Double boiler or heat safe bowl and a sauce pan
  • Mixing bowl
  • Muffin tin

Ingredients
 

Chocolate

  • 1 ¼ cup dairy-free chocolate chips, melted ($1.67)

Filling

  • ½ cup natural, salted peanut butter ($0.88)
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour ($0.58)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup ($0.15)

Instructions
 

  • To begin, melt all chocolate chips in a double boiler. Set aside half of the chocolate for later, and divide the other half evenly into parchment-lined muffin tins. Note: smear some chocolate up the sides of the muffin cups a little with your spoon to fully coat the peanut filling.
  • Then, set the muffin tin in your freezer to chill while you prepare the filling.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine peanut butter, coconut flour, and maple syrup. Taste and add more sweetener if you prefer. If your peanut butter seems dry, try adding a tsp or so of coconut milk at this point.
  • Remove your muffin tin from the freezer and evenly layer peanut butter mixture over the chocolate. Then, top the peanut butter cups off with the rest of the melted chocolate.
  • Place the muffin tin back in your freezer to set for about 15-20 minutes before digging in! These cups are best kept in the fridge, although they will last 5-6 days at room temperature.

Notes

  • If your peanut butter is unsalted, add ¼ tsp salt.
  • If your peanut butter seems dry, mix in 1-2 tsp of coconut milk.
