The Edgy Veg

vegan christmas recipe edgy veg

Is there any partnership more beautiful than peanut butter and chocolate? Personally, I don’t think so– that is why I created this Reeces version of a Canadian favourite. I swapped out the traditional cream and replaced it with peanut-buttery goodness, everything else is the exact same as the original version.

When I was a kid my absolute favourite treat were Reeces peanut butter cups, I just couldn’t get enough! This easy recipe totally kills that craving I still get for those delicious cups of awesome. After tasting one of these bad boys you’ll forget that anyone ever teased you about being vegan. Yummers.
