Ingredients

Instructions

  • Make a batch of this vegan white chocolate OR use 8 oz of store-bought white chocolate of choice.
  • If using store-bought white chocolate, melt it in a double boiler (or in a microwave). Then pour about 1 1/2 tablespoons of the melted chocolate into a silicone cupcake liner or a regular cupcake liner (placed in a muffin tin). Chill in the freezer for about 5 minutes.
    Note: If you're using homemade chocolate, prepare it up to the point of pouring it into molds.
  • Then, add about 1/2 tablespoon of peanut butter, freeze again for 5 minutes. Finally, top with 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons of melted white chocolate. Repeat these steps with the remaining mixture.
  • Freeze or refrigerate until set. Remove from the cupcakes and enjoy! Store leftovers in the fridge or freezer.

Notes

  • Peanut butter: Even though these are PB cups, you can use sunflower seed butter if you can't eat peanut butter.
    You can melt your peanut butter slightly and mix it with powdered sugar (or powdered Erythritol) if you want to make it sweeter. I didn't add any sugar, since the chocolate is sweet enough. If your PB doesn't contain salt, simply add a pinch of salt. For a 'fudgy' peanut butter center, add a little coconut flour, oat flour, or almond flour to the peanut butter, similar to the recipe of my friend Arman.
  • The recipe makes 6 cups (regular size) or a lot more if using mini cupcake liners. One serving is 1/2 of a PB cup.
