Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups Yummy!
I like this kind of chocolate treat. I can't think of a time I have not eaten a chocolate cup with peanut butter. It is yummy delicious! I came across a healthier and more nutritious way to enjoy them.

Vegan Chocolate Protein Superfood Cups
3/4 cup dark chocolate chips/chunks of choice*
Melt the chocolate over low heat in a heat proof bowl. Use a spoon to spread a layer of chocolate into 4 large silicone muffin cups. Place in the fridge to set. Spread a second layer around the walls to create a thicker layer. Place into the fridge. Make the filling.
*Raw, cooked, or even make your own from scratch
1/3 cup tahini
1/4 cup warm water
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
2- 3 tablespoons maple syrup*
3 tablespoons protein powder of choice**
2 tablespoons cacao powder, or more
2-3 teaspoons superfood powders of choice
(I like a combo of maca, chaga, reishi, and lucuma)
Whisk all ingredients together until smooth.
Spoon into the 4 cups. Place into the freezer to firm up - at least 30 minutes.
Spread chocolate over the top. Place into the fridge for at least 3 hours for the filling to properly firm up (otherwise it will squish when you bite into it).
*Use only 2 tablespoons of sweetener if using a sweetened protein powder.
** I've made them using both unsweetened protein powder and vanilla vegan protein powder. You can use your favorite one!
