Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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!

Notes

* If you don't have rice syrup at home, you could use agave syrup or maple syrup instead.
