Treat your loved ones this Valentine’s day with these decadent, homemade chocolate peanut butter cups! These four-ingredient raw treats are 100% vegan, healthy and delicious, and only take minutes to prepare.
Last year on Valentine’s Day I posted a recipe for Two-Bite Chocolates, which have since become a staple snack in our home. These raw peanut butter cups are a variation of that recipe, made with heart-healthy extra virgin coconut oil, natural sweetener, and bittersweet dark cocoa powder.
The addition of salt heightens the flavour of the bittersweet chocolate and is the finishing touch to these rich, decadent treats. And when I say rich, I mean that usually only one of them will suffice to satisfy your sweet tooth!
These are a family fave; the kids and my husband and I love them, and not to mention that they are a fun and easy treat to prepare with the kids! The only problem is that most of the time the mixture ends up in our mouths rather than in the muffin tin!
These chocolate peanut butter cups freeze extremely well for up to 6 months…so stock up and take advantage of doubling or tripling the recipe! Store them for a quick on-the-go treat or serve as a decadent dessert with coffee for dinner guests.
