Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

READY IN: 9hrs 10mins
Recipe by mielhollinger

For years, the idea of making your own peanut butter cups seemed a laborous task. Now thanks to the efforts of vegan pioneers, recipes like this are only a little harder than making ice. (This recipe is from the cookbook "How It All Vegan.")

I just made this and followed the recipe but found that I could only fill 7 of the baking cups. I had to increase the recipe thus using 3/4 cup vegan margarine, 1.125 peanut butter and graham crumbs, 0.375 stevia natural sweetner I didn't have to increase the chocolate chips & soy milk (I used almond) quantities called for. Anyone else have this issue?

  3. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the peanut mixture into the muffin tins lined with cupcake paper liners (the liners are important).
