  • 3/4 cup vegan chocolate chips
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter I use natural (only ingredient is peanuts)
  • pinch flaky salt


  1. Line a mini muffin tin with mini muffin wrappers or plastic wrap.

  2. Combine chocolate chips and coconut oil in a bowl, and heat to melt chocolate chips. This can be done in the microwave at 30 second intervals, or over a double boiler.

  3. Add melted chocolate to the mini muffin molds, filling about 1/3 of the way (approximately 1 tbsp).

  4. Add approximatly 1/2 tsp peanut butter on top of the chocolate.

  5. Add more chocolate to the top of the peanut butter (approximately 1 tbsp), ensuring to spread it so the peanut butter is completely covered. Add a sprinkle of flaky salt on top of each peanut butter cup.

  6. Place muffin tin in the freezer to set for at least 30 minutes to set. Once set, pop out the peanut butter cups and enjoy!

Recipe Notes
