Pretzel-Stuffed Peanut Butter Cups

These vegan Pretzel-Stuffed Peanut Butter Cups are easy to make and such a delicious treat for fall!..

Peanut butter cups are one of my favorite treats. Peanut butter and chocolate in a handheld little crimp-edged cup. Well when I DIY my own peanut (or almond) butter cups, I like to add a few tweaks to the recipe. Recipe variations that you don't often find in store-bought candy. And today I added crunchy, salty, starchy pretzels to my usual cups. I absolutely loved the texture and added layer of flavor the pretzels added. this recipe is so fun to make this month to get in a Halloween sort of mood. Turn on Hocus Pocus, melt some chocolate in a double broiler and you're halfway there! Get the recipe...

Peanut Butter Candy Shape. You have two options. You can either use a basic muffin tin and line with muffin liners - since they have those nice crimped edges. Or you can buy peanut butter cup candy molds. Amazon has one few here.

Watch me whip these together..
