this recipe over at The Edible Perspective. Now I regret that decision. Why? Because I will never be able to eat a Reese's Pieces Peanut Butter Cup again! Like Ashley from The Edible Perspective said in her post, Reese's Pieces are really greasy. Really greasy. Anyways, here's the recipe to make your own peanut butter cups that will taste a lot better than store bought ones and are probably healthier for you to.
Coconut Oil Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
-2 cups chocolate chips (to make this recipe vegan, you just need to use vegan chocolate chips)
-2 tbs coconut oil
-1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
-1/4 cup powdered sugar (oh dear, I think I used icing sugar...)
-1tbs coconut flakes*
*Ashley's original recipe used some extra things like sea-salt, crispy rice cereal, and candies for the top. Things I did not have.
So this was my first time using coconut oil. Probably because I couldn't find it in my regular grocery store. I did, however, find it at Bulk Barn, the place where I seem to find everything. Cake decorating supplies, agave nectar, Chee Chas, nutritional yeast, amazing dried fruit, and now, coconut oil. If you have never used coconut oil or perhaps have never seen it, you are sooooooo missing out. It is the best thing EVER! Don't believe me? Just find a jar and open it. I'm sure you'll be convinced.
