Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

Looks like I’ve been on a chocolate and peanut butter kick lately. There are a ton of easy recipes out there with those two delectable ingredients. Then again, I’ll have peanut butter on just about anything. Pizza? Yes. Pickles? Yes. Don’t judge… These cups are pretty easy and would go great at potlucks or informal gatherings. Just be prepared to be hounded for the recipe. Also, think about making a double batch. Most won’t be able to stop at one cup. Now, get baking!

Ingredients (modified from The Kind Diet)

  • 1/2 c Earth Balance (vegan) butter
  • 3/4 c crunchy peanut butter
  • 3/4 c graham cracker crumbs (I used 9 crackers and processed them to pieces)
  • 1/4 c sugar
  • 1 c chocolate chips
  • 1/4 c soy milk
  • 1/4 c chopped nuts
  1. Line a cupcake pan with liners (this batch makes 12)
  2. Melt the butter in a small pan, then add the peanut butter, graham crumbs and sugar
  3. In a separate pan melt the chocolate chips and soy milk
  4. Add the peanut butter mixture to the liners (about 2 Tbls)
