Halloween can be tough for vegan kiddies and grown-ups alike since much of the trick-or-treating candy given out at homes and schools is not vegan. Here are some quick tips to help make Halloween healthy and fun for all!
Peanut Butter Cups
2 cups non-dairy, grain sweetened chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups creamy, unsweetened peanut butter
3-4 tablespoons brown rice syrup
Pinch sea salt
Lightly oil a standard mini muffin tin or line the cups with foil candy papers. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler (place the chocolate chips in a glass bowl over a pan of boiling water and stir until chocolate melts.
Spoon melted chocolate to fill to one-third into each cup. Place tray in freezer while preparing peanut butter. Combine peanut butter, sweetener and salt in a sauce pan and cook over low heat until the mixture is soft and smooth.
Spoon peanut butter on top of each chocolate cup, filling nearly to the top. Top each cup with chocolate, filling the remainder of the cups. Place tray in the freezer until set.
Makes about 24 peanut butter cups.
