These white chocolate peanut butter cups have a delicious pumpkin spiced twist! They are fudgy & full of flavour in the centre, then coated in a creamy white chocolate shell. Gluten & dairy-free. Perfect fall treat or dessert!



White Chocolate Topping:

  • 1 cup white chocolate chips (I like these for a lower sugar option, but any white chocolate will work. Use a vegan brand to keep this recipe vegan & dairy-free)
  • 2 tsp coconut oil

Pumpkin Spiced Filling:

  • 3 tbsp pumpkin purée
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of pink salt
  • 2 tbsp nut butter (I used all-natural crunchy peanut butter & highly recommend)

Pecan Topping

  • About 12 pecans for the top


  1. Melt the chocolate & coconut oil until smooth. I did 30 seconds in the microwave but you can also do low heat in a small pot on the stovetop.
  2. Evenly distribute the 1/2 of chocolate into a thin layer in muffin liners.
  3. Chill the chocolate in the freezer until firm while you make the filling.
  4. Add all of the ingredients for the filling into a bowl & mix well.
  5. Evenly distribute the filling & spread over the chilled white chocolate.
  6. Chill for another 5-10 minutes until the filling is set.
  7. Top with the remaining chocolate & a pecan.
  8. Chill until firm & store in the fridge.
  9. Note the filling may pop out when you eat them since it is softer than the chocolate so keep a napkin close!
