Here is the original;
Peanut Butter Cups (Reeses)
- 1 11-12 ounce bag chocolate chips
- 2 tbsp shortening
Melt chocolate chips and shortening. Fill paper muffin cups ¼ full and spread chocolate around the sides. Place in freezer to harden.
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1 cup icing sugar
- 1 tbsp butter, melted
Filling: Mix 3 ingredients and chill. Roll in balls and place in cups. Pour melted chocolate over top. Chill until set.
Here is mine dairy free/healthier/vegan recipe!!
Here are the stars of the show...
1 11-12kg of DAIRY free chocolate - the decedant from Superstore is awesome!!
2 TBSP - Extra Virgin Coconut oil
Melt these two together in a double bowler (or whatever you have)
This chocolate melts very easily - and the coconut oil added some coconut flavor which was good.
Fill your muffin tin a little less than 1/4 full (my bottoms were hard to bite through, too thick)
I used a flexible muffin pan, so I could pop them out
ps. it makes way more than 6, but I just made a smaller batch.
While they are hardening and mix together
1 cup icing sugar
1 cup peanut butter until it looks like this...
(I didn't use the butter)
Roll into balls and add to the chocolate, leaving some room on the side for the chocolate to seep over.
Then cover with the rest of the chocolate... and make sure every little bit is covered.
I knocked mine on the counter to get it all even.
Then pop them back in the freezer until hard!!
Look at this lovely baby
Well SUPER BABY it was HUGE!!
I would make the chocolate way thinner next time.. It was like a full time job to try and bite through it.
It was sooo good. The tiny hint of coconut made it yummilicious!
The test is when Dave get's home... Dave's first love is peanut butter cups, I come second.. hehe
Let me know if you try these?
I would 100% do these again (many times)
These will be a christmas treat for sure.. AND they are easy!!
If you use paper liners then you would have the cute reese peanut butter cup look!!
