Vegan substitutes are getting better and better, especially when it comes to delectable desserts. My Vegan Chocolate and Peanut Butter Cupcakes contain one of my favourite substitutes of all - the amazing GoMaxGo Cleo's Peanut Butter Cups. I must warn you, however, that these treats are not for the faint hearted, and are maxed out with peanut butter, chocolate, coconut and, well, more chocolate.

Ingredients

Cooking Stages

    • Preheat oven to approximately 180 degrees Celsius, and line a cupcake tin with 12 cupcake cases.

    • Combine coconut milk and apple cider vinegar in a jug and leave for ten minutes.

    • Meanwhile, sift flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, brown sugar and cocoa into a large bowl.

    • Add coconut oil, vanilla essence and coconut milk mixture to the bowl, and carefully fold until ingredients are just combined.

    • Place a vegan peanut butter cup at the bottom of each cupcake case, and spoon mixture on top.

    • Bake for approximately 20 minutes, or until cupcakes bounce bake when pressed.

    • Meanwhile, to make icing, beat shortening and butter until smooth.

    • Add icing sugar 1 cup at a time, beating well after each addition.

    • Add peanut butter and soy milk and beat for 30 seconds, or until icing is stiff and well mixed.

    • To make chocolate sauce, combine coconut cream, cocoa and maple syrup in a saucepan over a low heat.

    • Once melted, remove from heat and stir in arrowroot. Place in the fridge to thicken for 1/2 an hour.

    • To assemble cupcakes, pipe icing onto each cupcake, top with chocolate flakes and peanuts, and drizzle over chocolate sauce (I poured mine into a baking syringe which worked really well!)
