I enter and win a lot of contests but I always forget to track how much I win. This year I am going to have a blog post and keep updating it as I win.  My first win of the year happened to be while I was visiting Vancouver in February. I won two tickets to the home and garden show and a package of Noods (vegan noodles). Thank you to Plant Based Workshop value $45. 

Reese’s Peanut Butter and Vegan Peanut Butter Cups



 

It’s Halloween night I was going to make vegan peanut butter cups tonight. I saw in the flyer for showcase stores which are an as seen on TV store that they had Reese’s peanut butter. The regular price was $20 but it was on sale for $10. The question was it worth buying a $10 jar of peanut butter just so I could have vegan peanut butter cups? 



I followed the method on Thee Burger Dude’s YouTube channel. Scooped out the peanut butter and put it in the fridge while I melted the chocolate. I had a few bars of Lindt dark chocolate from when they were a great price. I melted one bar by putting a bowl on top of the steamer basket in my always pan. 

My cups don’t look good because I didn’t work fast enough with the melted chocolate they taste great though. Make sure you have a spoon ready when the chocolate is melted put a spoon of chocolate in each cup. Then put the peanut butter in the centre. Then cover with chocolate and put in the fridge. I put mine in the freezer for about twenty minutes because I have no patience. 

They tasted great. I think it’s been around a year since I had a Reese’s peanut butter cup and I remember it being too sweet. The homemade cup has the right amount of sweetness and the texture is perfect for me. Some people might prefer to add icing sugar to get more sweetness and texture. It is already perfect for my taste. It was worth buying a $10 jar of peanut butter.
