These salted chocolate pumpkin butter cups are a twist on my favorite vegan peanut butter cup recipe

Instead of peanut butter, the filling is made of pumpkin spiced creamy almond butter!

Paired with semi sweet chocolate chips and chunks of flaky sea salt in every bite, you just try to eat only one!

I love making chocolate cup recipes, as they look so fancy, but take barely any work at all.

It really could not be more simple and takes maybe 15 minutes tops to make these pumpkin cups.

After that, all you have to do is put them in the fridge or freezer until set!

Easy peasy and such a fun pumpkin-y treat for fall. 

Bonus points, they are pretty good for you, naturally gluten free, and vegan.

Pumpkin wins once again!
