PB & J chocolate cups

Your favourite childhood combination!

Here we’ve got a decadent, chocolatey treat inspired by the classic PB & J (peanut butter and jelly) sandwich that’s no-bake and easy to make in the Vibe Blender System. These chocolate cups are filled with homemade peanut butter and a simple, raw & refined sugar-free raspberry chia jam. If you love sweet and salty treats, these homemade chocolates are for you. They are vegan, low in sugar and plumped up with plant-based protein and healthy fats. Consider them the perfect homemade edible gift for Easter, Valentine's Day, Christmas or anytime.

The peanut butter we use to fill these chocolate cups is a variation on our famous smooth or crunchy peanut butter. The best part about making homemade nut butter is that you can control what goes in, customise the flavour and texture. We added cinnamon and salt, sweetened it with maple syrup (you can use honey) and added coconut oil to help stabilise the potential ooze factor.

We love peanut butter for this recipe, but there's no reason you can't use almond, chai spiced cashew or super seed (no-nut) butter instead. For double chocolate heaven, hazelnut and chocolate (healthy Nutella) nut butter would be amazing too! Either smooth or crunchy works in these chocolate treats - blend until you get the consistency you enjoy the most.

Chia jam doesn’t taste like traditional, sweet jam because it’s made with raw berries and only contains a little bit of sweetener. The process is super simple. Instead of using heat to reduce and thicken the berries, chia seeds do all the work. After pureeing, it takes a little while for the chia seeds to absorb the liquid and thicken. You may want to prepare it a few hours ahead of time. If you have any left over, this chia jam is great on toast with nut butter and fantastic with homemade yogurt.
