Vegan Peanut Butter Cups- Vegan 'Reese's'


*The amount of ingredients could be more or less and are only approximates.*

1+ cups vegan carob chips
4 tbsp favorite peanut or almond butter
2 tbsp of unbleached all purpose flour
1 tbsp organic cane sugar
12 tiny wax paper or silicone cupcake cups

Begin by mixing together peanut butter and sugar. Slowly incorporate flour until a soft moist dough is formed. Next use a double boiler to melt down the carob chips (I used a large pot filled half up with water and a glass mixing bowl, use whatever tools you have, right;). Don't forget to continuously stir!

 Once melted, coat the bottom of each cup with carob.

Next form small peanut butter balls with hand. *Be sure the peanut butter isn't touching the sides of the cup to ensure proper structure.

Finally spoon melted carob over peanut butter until completely coated. Lightly tap each cup on counter to even the carob out. Feel free to top with any garnish of your choosing. I added thin slices of bananas on some! Put in fridge until set.

(I realize this photo didn't turn out, but oh well!)
