There’s no shame in keeping things simple, especially if it works and these do. We really mean it when we say that these vegan peanut butter cups could not be any easier to make. 

First, the peanut butter and vegan margarine are heated in the microwave. Then you add the icing sugar and stir before melting the remaining margarine and chocolate together to form the outer shell.

Then, simply pop a spoonful of the chocolate mixture into a paper cup, top it with the peanut butter and cover with chocolate to coat.

In just a few steps, you’ve made a vegan sweet treat that you can pop in lunch boxes or bring out for the kids when you want a double hit of vegan chocolate and protein.

These vegan peanut butter cups are so easy to make that your family can remain well stocked and never have to go without.

Once the easy peanut butter cups are firm, pop them in an airtight container and keep them in the fridge.
