Justin’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
After browsing Pinterest and seeing so many cute Halloween dessert ideas, I became inspired to recreate one using only all-natural & vegan-friendly ingredients. Although I would not call these “healthy”, they do contain clean ingredients you can actually understand/pronounce! I believe if you’re going to treat yourself to sweets, you should still be conscientious of what’s in them. Instead of using regular mini Reeses, I swapped them for mini organic Justin’s peanut butter cups! The Justin’s team was kind enough to send me over a few peanut butter cups when I told them I was writing this post so thank you Justin’s! Below is my favorite vegan peanut butter cookie recipe. It is extremely simple and takes only 20 minutes to make! Right after the recipe I’ve included instructions on how to make the spider cookies! Enjoy!
Justin’s Mini Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups (available online or at Target),Vegan Chocolate Frosting, Candy Eyes, Piping bag, Optional: spider-web doilies and orange napkins
Instructions: 1. Using a small amount of frosting, stick a Justin’s peanut butter cup face down in the center of a cookie. 2. Add frosting to a piping bag and pipe 8 spider legs on top of the cookie. If you do not have a piping bag, add frosting to a ziplock bag and snip off a tiny piece of one of the bag’s corners to use to pipe the legs. 3. Attach the eyes using a small dot of frosting. 4. Place in the fridge to cool. 5. Optional: Lay a spider web doily over an orange napkin to display your cookies on!
