Need a unique, fall treat? These vegan White Chocolate Pumpkin Peanut Butter Cups are incredible, and easier to make than you might think!
A couple of months ago, I was shooting a taste tester column for VegNews all on vegan white chocolate. One of the products were these incredible black sesame cups from EatChic, that were SO good. This recipe isn’t quite their version, I was inspired by their creation to for this seasonal take!
While vegan white chocolate isn’t the easiest to find in stores, you can order online through a few different sites. I typically use King David chips, but there are other brands available! You could also try making your own, but I have not tried this method and am not sure what the ratio would be for these.
And, speaking of these white chocolate pumpkin peanut butter cups, all it takes is a little melting, spooning, whisking and refrigerating! After you’ve obtained your white chocolate, you just need a few familiar ingredients and a mini-cupcake pans, with liners. You could also make these in a standard-sized cupcake pan, but will have to roughly triple the amounts listed in my instructions, for each cup.
Now, if you have a peanut allergy, you can use smooth almond butter or sunflower butter instead. And honestly, you could also make these from vegan dark chocolate, but I love the light creaminess of white chocolate here. I added turmeric and paprika for a festive color, but they’re optional!
Finally, let’s get on with the recipe, shall we! If you make and enjoy this treat, I love to see your recreations! Post it on social media with the #veganyackattack or @veganyackattack, so that I can check ‘em out and share. <3
These spiced Chai Waffles with Cinnamon Apple Topping are the perfect fall brunch meal! Plus, they’re vegan and soy-free.
A few weeks ago, I made some waffles for Corey and I, using the base recipe from Vegan Bowl Attack! It was a pretty solid way to use up the blueberries wrinkling up in my refrigerator. 😉 Then, I posted a picture on social media, asked everyone if they’d be interested in a chai/apple combo, and a got resounding, “YES!”
So, the next weekend I made brunch for a few friends that were in town, to test it out. Unffff. These waffles are GOOD! I made some modifications to the chai waffles from the book, then added this super-easy, extra-tasty apple topping. Of course, you can customize the fruits to those of your liking, maybe persimmons in November and December? Peaches would be great once summer comes back around, too!
Now, the waffle maker I used is a really deep (about 2-inches thick) belgian one, similar to this model. This chai waffle recipe makes 4 of these large waffles, or if you have a more standard-sized waffle maker, it will probably make around 8 waffles. Aside from portions, the size of your waffle maker will also change the cooking time of your waffles. A good tip for you is to keep an eye on the steam – as soon as it is nearly non-existent, your waffles should be good to go.
Pair these chai waffles with a hot chai latte, or strong cup of coffee, and enjoy! OH, and if you’re not subscribed to my newsletter, I strongly recommend it. Two previews of some upcoming posts: White Chocolate Pumpkin Peanut Butter Cups, and Instant Pot Spiced Cake. You DON’T want to miss them!

You may have seen the news already, but if you haven’t there’s a new vegan dessert in town! This So Delicious Frozen Mousse is NO JOKE, and I’m here to tell you what I think about it.
To say I’ve been a fan of So Delicious products since I went vegan would be an understatement. I’m a huge fan of ice cream, so theirs was my first exposure to vegan versions and I couldn’t believe how great it was! Ever since, I’ve used and loved many of their products, so I got really excited when they reached out about their NEW So Delicious Frozen Mousse.
I have a friend or two that are pretty deep in the natural foods industry, so I knew that something like this was launching. And before getting into the nitty-gritty of the products, it’s a lot like their CocoWhip, but swirled with ribbons of goodness. Honestly, I think it’s freakin’ genius. I can easily polish off a pint of their Snickerdoodle flavor in one sitting, if I’m not paying attention. So, it’s nice to have an alternative that is less calorie-dense, but still satiates my sweet tooth.
Let’s dive right in, shall we? I got 3 flavors from my local Smith’s, though they should be getting into a variety of stores, right now. Namely, Kroger, Walmart, and others, so just call your local grocer to see if they’ve landed! Anyway, the 3 flavors I got were Peanut Butter Swirl, Lemon Swirl, and Salted Caramel Swirl, yummmm.
