Peanut butter cups were my absolute favourite chocolate bar, (do they count as bars?), before I ditched dairy so it was only a matter of time before I created a dairy free version to enjoy at home.
I’ve made these before using just peanut butter in the middle and, although it works well, you don’t get that sweet and creamy peanut butter centre that makes shop bought versions so spectacular. Mixing the icing sugar, (or powdered sugar depending on where you’re from), in with the peanut butter really just takes these to the next level and I honestly think they are just as good as the real thing! Make sure you use a sieve when adding the icing sugar or you’ll end up with lumps of icing sugar dotted throughout the centre.
They are so easy to make and require just three ingredients making them an easy treat to whip up when you’re stuck for time or don’t have many ingredients in! The ‘prep time’ states that these will take 70 minutes as this includes the time needed for the peanut butter cups to set.
Try adding half a teaspoon of jam to these to really jazz them up!
