I absolutely love Resees peanut butter cups, but rarley eat them. If your anywhere near my age let's just say pushing 40, then you can understand things like Resees become forbidden pleasures. What do they say "a moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips!" Unfortunately this becomes more true with each passing year.
Which brings me to my new creation.
Vegan and high raw peanut butter cups!
these are some of the ingredients I used
and I can't forget my beloved coconut oil!
I mixed a couple of Tablespoons of PB with a little agave syrup and little ground flax to give it that Resees like consistency
I put a little of the chocolate at the bottom of cupcake holders, which is a combo of cocoa, coconut oil, and agave syrup. I don't measure at all; I just add a little of this and that till I like the taste and consistency. If I were to guess I'd say I use about equal parts cocoa to coconut oil.
then I top with the PB
I finish it off with another layer of chocolate. Refrigerate after complete. All my candies and desserts will need refrigeration because I don't use sugar, salt, or preservatives. All of these ingredients preserve food.
Next I whipped up a batch of Vegan and high raw chocolates. Using the same chocolate preparation as above; cocoa, coconut oil, and agave syrup.
I finished these off by adding some mint and lemon balm from my garden
lastly I made a batch of chocolate and poured it into a dish (same preparation)
I put it in the refrigerator to harden.
then I turned it out onto a cutting board
and coarsely chopped
You can use these to bake with, snack on, use as toppings, throw in smoothies, the sky's the limit.
As everything else, keep refrigerated. Enjoy!
