WHITE CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER CUPS

(DAIRY FREE, VEGAN)

This recipe is created by the fabulous foodie, Camilla Lovell. Here's a little background behind the story of these dairy free, vegan white chocolate peanut butter cups, and the recipe for you guys to try below!

"Around three years ago, my doctors diagnosed me with a dairy intolerance and although I easily adapted to living a dairy free lifestyle, there are a few things I did miss: thick and creamy ice cream and Reese’s peanut butter cups. I remember my dad bringing them home after one of his trips in America and I was automatically hooked.

 

Lucky but not so lucky for me, it was quite hard to find them in your local supermarkets in Spain so I decided to make my own. And I can honestly say that making your own homemade chocolate peanut butter cups is extremely easy and much more affordable.

 

White chocolate + rich peanut butter are a match made in heaven and adding that little touch of sea salt intensifies the flavors.

 

Peanut Butter cups are a great little treat to end the night with. And by making them at home you can control the amount of sweeteners used and the quality of ingredients.

 

I used Pic's peanut butter in this recipe as it contains no added sugars or palm oils. Simply peanuts and salt. And the Dairy free white chocolate can be found in most free from isles in your local supermarket."
