Raw Caramel Peanut Butter Cups

So these might look kinda weird and it's not a super grand picture but HOLY BANANAS these are so good! Raw vegan baking is without a doubt the most delicious in my opinion! And you don't get a heavy gross feeling after you've eaten! I see no flaws. Recipe adapted from healthybodymindspirit.

Ingredients:
Fudge Layer:

  • 1/4 cup raw pecans
  • 1/4 cup raw walnuts
  • 2 tbsp raw cocoa powder
  • 8 medjool dates (softened)
  • a pinch of sea salt
  • peanut butter
Caramel Layer:
  • 20 medjool dates
  • 1 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 1 tbsp almond milk (vanilla)
Chocolate:
  • 1 tbsp agave
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
Steps: (makes 6)
  • Add fudge layer ingredients (not including peanut butter) into a food processor and blend.
  • Divide the base into 6 parts, and press into muffin tin pans.
  • Layer 1 tbsp peanut butter on the fudge base and freeze for 30 mins.
  • As it freezes, place all the caramel ingredients into the food processor and blend until smooth (this will take a while, i suggest soaking the dates before hand.)
  • Once the peanut butter is frozen, spread the caramel layer of and place back in the freezer.
  • Mix the chocolate ingredients together and layer on top. Freeze until hard, then enjoy!!
