I get the best ideas for new recipes when I’m riding my bike home from work late at night – when the streets are empty or when I’m in the shower. Let’s just call these vegan Snickers Cups a bike-idea :D

I’m sure you know the basic concept of chocolate cups from regular Peanut Butter Cups or my Bloody Cups for Halloween, but these are filled with a creamy caramel sauce and roasted & lightly salted peanuts! If you’ve been a fan of Snickers – then I’m sure you will love these; even if you don’t like Snickers (I never cared for it, really) – you’ll love these too ^.^ Well, at least, I hope you do!

These are really easy to make! The GIF above shows the basic steps of the process.

  • 1 1/2 cups vegan baking chocolate or chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup raw peanuts (or roasted - in that case skip step 3)
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown rice syrup*
  • 1/2 tablespoon water


  • Place 9 muffin liners in a muffin pan.
  • In a double boiler, melt the baking chocolate/chocolate chips and coconut oil, stir well. Fill about 1½ teaspoons of melted chocolate in the muffin liners; tilt them, so the chocolate spreads to the sides. Repeat for all the muffin liners and place the muffin pan into the fridge for a few minutes (until the chocolate hardens). Use about half the chocolate for this step.
  • Roast the peanuts with a pinch of salt in a small pan on medium heat for about 3-4 minutes while stirring occasionally. Chop the peanuts in smaller pieces.
  • Mix the almond butter with the rice syrup and water until it has reached a creamy consistency. Depending on the almond butter you're using, you might have use more or less water to achieve that.
  • Once the first chocolate layer has set, divide the almond butter mixture into the muffin liners (place it in the middle) and sprinkle the peanuts on top.
  • Use the rest of the melted chocolate to top the cups with. Tilt it a bit so the top is covered with the chocolate completely. Let it harden in the fridge for about 5 minutes.
  • Once the chocolate is hard, carefully remove the cups from the cupcake liners and enjoy!



* If you don't have rice syrup at home, you could use agave syrup or maple syrup instead.
Storage: Keep the Snickers Cups in the fridge until they are all gone :)

Devine! Such genius caramel! We also made these with peanut butter instead to make them like peanut butter cups that I’ve missed so much since going vegan! Thanks for this recipe!

I love this recipe. I've been vegan for 25 years. That's a long time without a snickers bar. I'm going to try the recipe with peanut butter instead of almond butter. I've missed peanut butter cups so much. Thanks for the inspiration.

Holy moly! I love Snickers, and I'm always trying to recreate different vegan versions of it. These cups look absolutely delicious; I need to try them ASAP! I love how easy they are to make, and the fact that they require so little ingredients is just another big plus. Bianca, you are a genius :) Loving the video as well, very helpful.
