Chocolate Tahini Cups (Vegan & Gluten-free)
Like a chocolate peanut butter cup, but made with tahini instead of peanut butter. A quick and easy treat that calls for only a few ingredients but results in the most delicious treat.
There are so many chocolate peanut butter cup (aka Reese’s peanut butter cup) recipes out there. They are so popular, and it’s not difficult to see why. Peanut butter and chocolate is such a lush combination! However, being the tahini addict I am, I had to create a version using tahini instead of peanut butter, and dare I say I think it tastes so much better!
These chocolate tahini cups are probably one of my favourite weekend movie night treats, along with homemade popcorn of course! But you always need a sweet, preferably chocolate, treat in the mix to make it feel extra special.
If you’re a fan of Reese’s peanut butter cups, then you will love these chocolate tahini cups. They’re vegan, gluten-free and nut-free – a great alternative for nut allergy sufferers.

This is where Reese’s went wrong 😉 If they had made tahini cups, I would have been a fun 😉
I totally agree! 😀
Oh yum, love how that gooey tahini oozes out of the middle! I have some tahini in the fridge – need to try these.
Thank you Becca 🙂
Wow, delectable. I would happily munch on these when having a sunday night sofa fest!
They’re the perfect weekend treat 😉
I love chocolate peanut butter cups, so this is a really great twist on them. I love tahini.
I love tahini too! So much better than peanut butter 😛
Ooh yes, lovely idea and they look phenomenal. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised knowing your love of tahini. I’d sort of assumed if you had a nut allergy you wouldn’t be able to eat seeds either, so useful to know tahini should be OK.
Haha I’m definitely a tahini addict 😀 Some people with nut allergies are ok with seeds, but it depends on the person.
What a simple but delicious recipe it would be great to get kids involved in making these.
They’re super easy so it’s a good recipe for kids to get involved in 😀
6 cups is not much for using 100 gram chocolate…
