So yesterday, I set about to make Peanut Butter Cups. I really thought that these would be epic and life changing, and here’s why.
I love. love. love. love Reese’s cups. I’m not particularly a sweets person, but from time to time I want a Reese’s, and there’s nothing vegan about a Reese’s. So since becoming a vegan, the closest I’ve come to tasting a Reese’s peanut butter cup is on the lips of my husband after he eats one. For shame!
Now about this…
First, let me say that the filling was scrum-dilly-umptious. Seriously. The recipe can be found here.
So here’s the deal. Vegan chocolate chips are semi-sweet. Semi-sweet + Peanut butter es no bueno to me. My husband still seems to like them, but I’m going to have to figure out a way to make milder chocolate before I try again. I learned that though, so I guess it’s not totally a fail. It’s just a step closer to the goal.
Oh, and also – I also learned something else. Peanut Butter Panda Puffs are the bomb!
