Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

I absolutely LOVE these Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups from Alicia Silverstone’s Cookbook, “The Kind Diet”!


1/2 cup Earth Balance butter
3/4 cup crunchy peanut butter, unsweetened & unsalted
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup maple sugar
1 cup grain sweetened non-dairy chocolate chips
1/4 cup soy or rice milk
1/4 cup chopped pecans, almonds, or peanuts (optional)


Line a 12 cup muffin tin with paper liners.
Set aside.
Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat.
Stir in peanut butter, graham cracker crumbs, and maple sugar and mix well.
Remove mixture from the heat.
Evenly divide the mixture, approximately 2 tablespoons per cup, among the muffin cups.
Combine the chocolate and milk in another pan.
Stir over medium heat until the chocolate has melted.
Spoon the chocolate evenly over the peanut butter mixture.
Top with chopped nuts if desired.
Place in the refrigerator to set for at least 2 hours before serving.
