Chocolate Peanut Butter Pumpkin Spiced Cups

To say these peanut butter pumpkin spiced cups are addicting would be an UNDERSTATEMENT! Guys, I cannot stop... I'll admit, as a kid, those sneaky little Reese's PB cups were my weakness, but with becoming vegan, comes great responsibility. In other words, no hoarding candy bars off the shelves in the checkout line at grocery stores. It was only a matter of time before I brought this chocolate peanut buttery goodness back to life. This seriously simple recipe is definitely one for the win. Perfect for gifting, snacking, entertaining - you name it!

  • 1 Cup Puffed Quinoa 

Directions:

Step 1: In a small mixing bowl, melt 2 cups of chocolate in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds for 2 minutes. Add 2 tablespoons coconut oil and heat for another 20 seconds. Fill each muffin cup with 2 tablespoons of chocolate mix and set in fridge for 5 minutes. 

Step 2: In a small mixing bowl, add peanut butter, pumpkin spice, and salt, and stir until blended together. Add puffed quinoa and mix evenly, to create cup filling.
