i really wanted to make homemade reese’s cups… especially with valentine’s day coming up! these are made in mini cupcake liners. super easy, no baking! i searched up some recipes and i liked THIS one the best. i got most of this recipe from her and changed it up a bit myself!
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips (melted with double broiler)
1 cup easy melting white chocolate (i used ghirardelli)
2 tablespoons coconut flour
1 teaspoon butter extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons smooth peanut butter (i used white chocolate wonderful by peanut butter & co.)
1 tablespoon pb2
3 tablespoons almond milk (or milk of choice)
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
4 tablespoons water
so there are essentially 4 layers to each one of these beauties
bottom to top: dark chocolate, peanut butter, cake batter crumbles, white chocolate
line a mini cupcake tin with the mini cupcake liners (you can also make bigger ones, but i think they would be too big)
dark chocolate layer:
melt your dark chocolate over a double broiler
put enough melted dark chocolate in each liner so it covers the bottom of the liner completely, not too much! we have to put 3 more layers in there!
after you’re done this layer, freeze for about 8-10 minutes
peanut butter layer:
mix peanut butter, pb2, almond milk and vanilla extract together until smooth
add on top of dark chocolate, only in the middle!
cake batter crumble layer:
mix coconut flour, water, butter extract and baking powder together and microwave for about 2 minutes
mix until you have crumbles of cake
put a tiny bit in each cupcake liner on top of or around the peanut butter layer
add rainbow sprinkles
white chocolate layer:
you can then melt the white chocolate in the microwave (because i got easy melting chocolate) and top each one off making sure the peanut butter and cake layer is covered
add sprinkles right away so they stick and freeze for another 10 minutes
these should be solid now and ready to eat!
note: the only thing is with these, when you take them out of the cupcake liners, they could fall apart because mine didn’t have chocolate surrounding all the peanut butter. so that’s the only technical part i would try to fix next time, but it’s hard when they’re so small and have so much to them! delicious!
