Fast Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Hearts – PB2 Recipe

If you’re looking for a very quick way to make an impressive little yummy gift for someone (or yourself!), then these chocolate peanut butter hearts will do the trick. I loveeee chocolate peanut butter cups, but the vegan brands are hard to come by and are quite pricey. This will satisfy any chocolate & peanut butter cravings, and by using PB2 (powdered peanuts), it’ll reduce the fat and calories by quite a bit. If you want to go all in, use natural peanut butter and it’ll be that much better! I do love PB2, but it just doesn’t quite compete with regular natural peanut butter. I’m not complaining though, since these are delicious. You can of course make the chocolate from scratch, but I thought I would keep it very simple for this one.

Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Hearts
 
Author:
Ingredients
  • 2-3 tbs vegan chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life Mega Chunks)
  • 1 tbs *PB2, mixed with a small amount of water (like ½ tbs) so it is spreadable but not runny (Or regular natural Peanut Butter - PB2 just lowers the fat and calories and is what I had in the kitchen)
  • Silicon Heart Molds / Chocolate Molds (Whatever shape you like, I just wanted to make Hearts this time. :))
*In case you haven't heard of PB2, it is basically powdered peanuts with most of the fat removed from them, so the fat content is greatly reduced. You just mix with water until you have the peanut butter consistency that you like!
Directions
  1. Heat the chocolate in a small pan on skillet (I have a very tiny skillet - I wouldn't advise using a regular-sized one) and stir with a spatula until it is smooth. While that is heating up, prepare your PB2.
  2. Carefully pour the chocolate into each mold so it is only half-full. Place in the freezer for just a few minutes so the chocolate firms up a bit. Next, scoop a small amount of the prepared PB2 into each mold and then pour the rest of the chocolate onto the molds until they cover the PB2. Pop back into the freezer for a few more minutes and remove once they are firm. If you are using silicone molds, they should be especially easy to pop out. 🙂
Just to show something a little different! I was too impatient and took these guys out before they were hard enough, so they got gooey… still yummy, but not as neat and tidy and I could have got them. But hey, they’re skulls doin’ their thangs.
