PEANUT BUTTER ICE CREAM CUP

It’s a celebration! Peanut butter and chocolate together again, in sweet sweet harmony. These little love cups are simple to make, and are such a delicious treat!!

Makes 12 PB CUPS

CRUST

3/4 Cup Raw Almonds or Macadamia Nuts

1/2 Cup Dates

5 TBSP Raw Cocoa

2 TBSP Coconut oil

1/8-1/4 Cup Coconut flakes

Place all the ingredients in a food processor EXCEPT coconut flakes. Blend into a fine meal. Sprinkle your coconut flakes in each individual silicon muffin cup. This is to prevent your crust from totally sticking. Press about 1 1/2 TBSP of your mixture into each of the cups using your finger tips. Place in freezer.

PEANUT BUTTER ICE CREAM

2 Cans Coconut Milk

1/2 CUP Maple Syrup( Sugar, Agave, or sweetener of choice)

1/2 CUP Peanut Butter

1 TSP Vanilla

1/2 Vegan Chocolate Chips

Place all ingredients, except the chocolate chips, in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Stir until all ingredients are incorporated and the sugar is melted. Pour into a bowl and allow to cool for at least 3 hours.

If you have an ice cream maker pour the cooled mixture in, according to the manufacturer’s directions. Be sure to remove the ice cream from the machine about 5 minutes earlier than you would normally. You want your ice cream soft. Stir in the chocolate chips at this time.

If you do not have an ice cream maker pour into a glass container and place in the freezer. Freeze for 2 hours then stir in your chocolate chips and return to the freezer for an additional hour or two. You want your ice cream soft- not total liquid, but just starting to freeze.

Once your ice cream has reached the desired consistency pour an equal amount into each silicon cup. Be sure and fill each cup. Place in the freezer and leave overnight.

CHOCOLATE COATING

3/4 CUP Vegan Chocolate Chips (or you can make your own chocolate)

3/4 CUP Peanut Butter

Place ingredients in glass measuring cup within a pot of boiling water. Allow the mixture to become a liquid as you stir. Remove ice cream cups from the freezer and pour the melted mixture as evenly as possible on the top of each cup. Return them to the freezer until you are ready to eat.

These last in the freezer indefinitely. Though I have yet to have them last longer than a week
