  • candy mold or muffin tin and liners


  • cup semi-sweet chocolate chips vegan
  • 2 tablespoon coconut oil extra virgin - optional
  • ¼ cup peanut butter softened
  • ¼ cup pretzels crushed
  • coarse sea salt to taste - topping


  • Melt the chocolate and one tablespoon coconut oil in a double broiler on the stove. LOW heat. When chocolate is shiny and melted, remove from heat.
  • Combine the peanut butter and 1 tablespoon coconut oil in a small dish, heat in microwave for 30-60 seconds. Stir. This mixture should be nice and soft.
  • Use either a peanut butter cup candy mold or a muffin tin lined with muffin liners. Scoop 1-2 teaspoon of chocolate into the cups. Allow the chocolate to coat the bottom and sides of the cups.
  • Place in the freezer for 2-3 minutes to harden.
  • Remove from freezer and add in a teaspoon of peanut butter and a pinch of pretzels - just enough to have a few sprinkled throughout. Top with another dollop of chocolate. Smooth tops. Repeat with all cups. Sprinkle coarse sea salt over top.
  • Freeze for another 10-20 minutes. Pop out of shells. Serve! Store leftovers in the freezer.
