Neverland Vegan High Tea

 I won a gift card for Neverland Tea Salon and Foodie Buddy suggested we go there because they have vegan high tea. Regular price of the tea is $50 per person which for Vancouver is a reasonable price. We were a little late to arrive as we commuted by transit. The place was very crowded but we were seated and given the menu. The server explained that we could have as many teas as we wanted but you could only one at a time. I ordered an apple black tea for the first one they also have a variety of plant milk choices I requested almond milk.  I ordered the Vegan high tea and Foodiebuddy ordered the traditional. Our platter came with all the vegan items close to me and the other items on the other side. The server explained what everything was but I still had to look up the menu online.  I started by trying the scone. The vegan ‘cream’ tasted like the coconut whipping cream you get at the grocery store. We were only given one container of jam to share but foodie buddy let me have it. The

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.
