Are you a fan of Reese's peanut butter cups? I am too! But after a while, I get a bit bored of the same flavour, so what better way to change things up than to recreate the recipe! These nut butter cups can be adjusted to your preference because you can use dark chocolate, milk chocolate or white chocolate for the bottom layer. For the top layer, you can stick to peanut butter, almond butter, cashew butter, or any other nut or seed butter of your choice! For my cups, I used a special blend of cashew vanilla and cashew chocolate butter that I found and it turned out delicious. I hope you all can recreate these in your own special way!

    Can you substitute vegetable oil for coconut oil?
