Home made Peanut Butter Cup | Candy Recipe

Peanut Butter Cup, a delicious snack/treat made from just 3 ingredients such as peanut butter,chocolate & coconut oil. The recipe is so simple, completely vegan and you can make them in minutes. 
To be honest, i don't like chocolate as it is, yeah, i know, certain things you can't say it in public and i guess this is one among them :-) But what to do, truth to be told,right?? But i like light coating of chocolate on bakery items or on waffers like munch and this peanut butter cups. 

The big advantage of making peanut butter cup at home is that you can adjust the proportion of peanut butter and chocolate as per your liking. 
Here in the recipe i have used less chocolate just enough to coat the peanut butter, but you can easily double up the chocolate in the recipe. This recipe is been in my drafts for around 10 months, somehow i feel that writing the new recipe is much easier than editing the existing drafts. But today i was determined to edit this post and share. Phew, successfully i did :-)
