I am so excited to share with you a recipe I had so much fun putting together for you! Now, if you aren’t interested in making your very own vegan white chocolate from scratch, you could always take inspiration from this post and simplify it! I promised I would be adding more of my own recipes to this blog and I wanted to incorporate some healthier alternatives since this is the way I eat! 🙂
I had so much fun creating a healthier alternative to white chocolate peanut butter cups, but remember, they are still a treat so try not to eat too many of them! If you are a youngster fan of Eat Hello Kitty please have an adult supervise you! ^_^
Hello Kitty Silicon Molds – $7.99 from Amazon
Since this recipe does not contain lecithin, which keeps white chocolate fats and sugars together, this recipe is considered an unstable chocolate, meaning you’ll have to keep your kawaii Hello Kitty candies in the fridge or they’ll get too soft!
When making your peanut butter filling, the consistency should be that of an almost dry dough (think of Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups). I used all natural peanut butter, but you may use what you have. I’d add less powdered sugar to the commercial peanut butter since it is already a bit thicker and less oily than natural peanut butter.
I hope you enjoy the inspiration for this recipe and/or the recipe itself! Please show me your creations at #EatHelloKitty on Instagram. I LOVE your messages and tags guys! Thank you so much for the support. I promise to continue adding my very own Hello Kitty recipes to Eat Hello Kitty!
- 1 1/2 Cups Raw Cocoa Butter
- 1/4 Cup Coconut Oil
- 1 Cup Confectioner's Sugar
- 1 TBSP Vanilla Extract
- 1/2 Cup Natural Peanut Butter
- 1/4 Cup Powdered Sugar
- In a double boiler, add raw cocoa butter and let melt.
- Add Coconut oil until combined.
- Remove from double boiler and let stand at room temperature for about 5 minutes.
- Whisk in half of the confectioner's sugar until completely combined then the remainder half.
- Add vanilla extract.
- Let Mixture set at room temperature until it looks like melted white chocolate (it will be clear when it's really hot).
- Fill each Hello Kitty mold a little more than half ways full.
- Place Hello Kitty Mold into the fridge for 15 minutes.
- While your white chocolate is setting up in the fridge, make your peanut butter filling by simply adding powdered sugar to your peanut butter in a medium sized mixing bowl.
- Once white chocolate is a bit firm, pinch off a small amount of peanut butter dough and flatten into a thick disc using your hands.
- Gently place on top of white chocolate and gently press in
- Add remainder white chocolate and set in fridge for at least 1 hour!
- Adding vanilla extract last to your candy keeps it safe from evaporating when your mixtures are too hot!
