Raw Chocolate, Peanut Butter Cheesecake Cups, Vegan + Gluten-Free

It’s official…it’s raw dessert season!

A few weeks ago I counted down my Top 10 Raw Desserts and today I’m back with another that’s a must-try.

Today’s Vegan, Gluten-Free Raw Chocolate, Peanut Butter Cups are a guaranteed crowd pleaser. I love the contract in texture between the fudgey chocolate layer and the creamy cheesecake topping.

I used creamy peanut butter this time but I think next time I’ll try crunchy to add a even more texture. Feel free to get creative and swap almond or cashew butter as well!

I also topped mine with coconut whipped cream and cacao nibs to make them even more decadent but trust me that these little babies are amazing all on their own!
