Basic Homemade Peanut Butter Cups (V+GF)

Next time the craving for Reese's hits, skip the packaged variety and make these at home.
Prep Time 25 minutes
Servings 9 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup all natural peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup powdered peanut butter pb2
  • 1/2 cup oat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup about 120g semi-sweet dark chocolate, roughly chopped (vegan if needed)

Instructions

  1. Combine peanut butter, vanilla, and salt and mix until smooth. Add in the oat flour, powdered peanut butter, and syrup and gently fold in until it all starts to form a dough-like mixture.
  2. Divide the dough into balls (about 1 tablespoon each).
  3. Melt chocolate slowly in a double boiler over low heat. Now use a spoon or pastry brush to coat the sides and bottoms of each cup liner, being sure to fill in any holes. Repeat with all the cups. Allow chocolate to dry just a bit and then place one of the balls of filling inside each one and press down to flatten and smooth the top. After you've filled each cup, use the remaining chocolate to coat the tops of each cup to seal them in chocolate. Allow them to harden (you can place them in the freezer to make this fast), then peel off the paper liners and enjoy.
  4. Store in an airtight container. (P.S. these are so good chilled!)
