This was the first recipe I made off of your site (a week or so ago) and I must say it was DELICIOUS!!! Ever since going vegan, it's been hard to find anything remotely close to a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup and this totally hit the nail on the head!!! I think if there was one thing I learned is to line the pan with parchment or wax paper so it will be easier to take out of the pan...Still came out in nice squares but took a little extra time to jimmy them out :p

OMG... this looks amazing.

Veggie Tales said...

My boyfriend creamed when he saw these. I guess I'll have to make them ... :)

kim said...

Alyssa said...

Just made the "meat" ball sub for dinner, and these chocolate eanut butter bars for dessert. SO YUMMY and SO EASY. I love this blog!

Tania said...

9x13 or 8x8 pan?

The Vegan Stoner said...

Both will work, just depends on how thick you want them to be. We used a 8x4 bread pan for ours. Get creative use any molding device you can fathom that isn't prone to sticking.

What kind of chocolate do you use so that is is vegan? The illustration says semi sweet, but doesn't that contain milk?

The Vegan Stoner said...

Semi sweet just refers to the flavor (mildly sweet). Some brands are vegan and some are not, not all are milk chocolate though.

When checking ingredients make sure it doesn't contain dairy and any lecithin is soy based only.

Feel free to use whatever vegan chocolate you have or carob chips.

Dana said...

This may be a dumb question but here goes anyway...When they are done, how do you store them? Do you keep them in the freezer, put them in the refrigerator, or leave them at room temperature? Thanks - so easy and so wonderful!!!

The Vegan Stoner said...

Hi Dana,

We like to keep them in the freezer, but your welcome to keep them in the fridge or at room temperature. They have more of a chance to start melting if left at room temp. for too long. So just keep an eye on them.

Mommy&Daddy said...

omg! so delish and so simple, who knew! after trying the original, as i like to call 'rough draft' i remade these with a fun twist.

I roll the peanut butter into balls, set them in the fridge to harden for a bit, mean while i melt the chocolate, dip the p.b. balls in the chocolate, set them on parchment paper, and sprinkle each one with diff. toppings. crushed pretzel, sea salt, peanuts, toasted sesame seeds, then pop em back in the fridge to set and VOILA! My hubby LOVED these, he was shocked by how satisfying they were without compromising the vegan aspect! Thanks again for the fun, inspiring blog! You guys are great!

chana said...

Hey veganstoner,

why chocolate chips and not normal chocolate-bar ?
ps i love your site, so cute drawings
thanks

The Vegan Stoner said...

Hi Chana,

We felt that chocolate chips were easier to melt and stir. You can probably use a normal chocolate bar just fine, you just might have to take some time to crush it up first.

We always recommend using whatever you have around. If it works, it works.

Chelsey said...

This recipe was so easy and SO delicious! I crushed up some Chick-O-Sticks and added them to the peanut butter mixture. I took them to a party and everyone loved them!

Diane said...

Hello, Sounds delish! What size pan do you make it in & what size chocolate chips? Thanks very much! Diane

The Vegan Stoner said...

Hi Diane,

It depends on how thick you want them to be. We used a 8x4 bread pan for ours. Get creative, use any molding device you can fathom that isn't prone to sticking.

Any chocolate chips work. The smaller the chips, the faster they will melt.

NHAM!!!

erisgrrrl said...

I just made a double batch of this in a 9x13 pan and they're about an inch thick - thicker in some areas and smaller in others b/c I'm a lazy spreader. (wow, that sounds bad)

I can't wait to taste them - one hour never seemed so long!

thanks for sharing.

Apologies to a commenter who recently left a very helpful comment which was accidentally deleted. This is what the person wrote, paraphrased:

"The chocolate chips did not look melted so I kept microwaving it, and it burnt in the middle. I suggest placing the the chips in a thin layer on a glass dish, microwaving quickly, then stirring. It will not look melted, but it will once you stir it up."

Thanks for the original comment, and feel free to re-post it in your words.

Erica Kuik said...

What size pan works best?

The Vegan Stoner said...

Hi Erica,

We used a 8.5" x 4.5" bread pan, which makes about 4 large squares that are really decadent.

Try using a larger and more shallow pan, for smaller and less decadent squares.

Hope this helps.
