Dark Chocolate Orange Peanut Butter Cups
Oops!... I did it again! I've been feeling like I need more treats with all the fodmap restrictions and got to thinking of what I have and what peanut butter cup combos I could make. Plus, I haven't made peanut butter cups since sometime after Halloween so it seemed like it was time. Orange, dark chocolate, peanut butter, and vanilla - so simple and so good!
Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 15 mins
Total Time: 30 mins
Makes: 15 cups
What You Need:
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp orange zest + extra for topping
1/4 cup peanut butter
2 tsp pure maple syrup
1 pinch of salt plus extra for topping
10 oz Enjoy Life dark chocolate chips (or others if not avoiding dairy)
2 tsp coconut oil
What You Do:
Combine the vanilla extract and orange zest and let sit for 30 minutes.
Combine peanut butter, vanilla, orange zest, maple syrup, and salt. Mix to combine and set aside.
In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the dark chocolate chips and coconut oil. Microwave in 30-second intervals until melted, stirring in between.
To assemble, fill the molds 1/3 of the way with the chocolate mixture and spread up the sides all the way to the top. Put in the freezer for 5 minutes.
Pull from the freezer and spoon about 1/2 tsp of the peanut butter mixture and top with chocolate, sealing the top. Top with orange zest and a pinch of salt. Return to the freezer for 10 minutes.
Keep in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator to prevent melting. Enjoy!
