These peanut butter cups are rich and chocolatey but completely dairy-free! That’s right – you can sit with a tea or coffee and nibble on these chocolate treats knowing they are 100% vegan.
What’s more, these peanut butter cups are gluten-free so are the perfect snack if you have gluten-sensitivity or coeliac disease. These peanut butter cups don’t take long to eat and don’t require any baking – just leave them in the freezer to set and they’re ready to enjoy!
Watch out for the hot weather though, because these little bites melt easily! Prepare for some chocolatey fingers!
