Chocolate Crunch Cups – Vegan & Gluten Free

Chocolate Crunch Cups

I love being a blogger. I knew I was going to love it from the moment I started. Being able to create the ‘sets’ where I stage my photos, brainstorming recipe ideas, shopping for props (yes!), it’s all groovy, baby. 😉

But, if I had to think of one drawback, it would be this: We rarely get to enjoy things twice. Seriously. We are like one of Princess Diana’s gowns. 😉 Because there are only two of us in the house, besides Louis who sticks to cat kibble, we eat up all of the goods that get made. I’m usually testing out three or four new recipes a week, and both successes and the inevitable failures/works in progress get eaten. I hate to waste food or money so it all get used.

So what that means is treats like these Peanut Butter Cups and these Crunch Bars, which are both really early recipes on the Honour System, we have only had a couple times while I was testing the recipes. Bummer! They are so delish.

It gave me the idea to do some combo recipes so we can enjoy some old favourites in a new way. I still need content for my website, but I want to enjoy peanut butter cups too, dammit! 😉

Presenting my first Honour System hybrid.

Chocolate Crunch Cups.


Chocolate. Peanut Butter, Crunch. Boom. To be exact.

Melt together coconut oil and peanut butter. Stir in cocoa and rice puffs. Pour into cups. Easy breezy, am I right?

These are healthy, whole food delights that have great texture and huge chocolate satisfaction. I think I’m gonna like this new recycling plan.

Stay tuned for more. 🙂

Thanks Wendy! I'm so happy to hear you still love those cups. Adding the puffed rice takes them over the edge. Super delicious. :) Have a great week!

These look awesome, I love a good crunch with chocolate. :-) Lol, I hear you on remaking recipes. I'll go to make an old favorite and start feeling guilty that I haven't tested out a new one yet. I agree with you that I wouldn't want it any different though!

I could NOT make these because I would not be able to STOP EATING!
Sharon March 20, 2015 at 8:43 am
That CAN be a problem. I like to do A LOT of sharing. ;)

The failures and works in progress are the worst BUT when you finally nail that recipe, there is nothing better, right? Ahh...the life of a food blogger ;) It looks like this one is a huge success. Chocolate + Peanut Butter + Crunch = YUM!

Only a fellow food blogger would pick up on that! Thanks so much, Gwen. :) Have a great weekend!

These are awesome! Can't wait to try them :) There is a lot of failed recipes in my kitchen too but they're usually at least edible! I don't like to waste anything either..

Groceries ain't cheap! ;) Thanks Deryn.
