These white chocolate pumpkin cups are like Reese’s cups gone on holiday.

They are made using the same method as my Vegan Peanut Butter Cups and Almond Butter Cups, but with a fun twist of rich white chocolate and seasonal pumpkin.

A decadent treat that only takes around half an hour to make and no baking required!

How to make white chocolate pumpkin cups

First, melt a bag of white chocolate chips with 2 tablespoons of coconut oil.

I use a regular sauce pan on the stove and watch it closely to avoid burning.

Low and slow heat is what we are going for here, whisking to get out any clumps.

Once the chocolate is melted and smooth, remove the pan from the heat.

Line a muffin tin with 12 liners, and pour 2 teaspoons of the white chocolate into each cup.

Once you have done this, shake and tap the pan on the counter until the chocolate lays flat.

Place muffin tin in the freezer for around 10 – 15 minutes, or until the chocolate is set.

While the chocolate is freezing, make your pumpkin filling.

Do this by stirring together the pumpkin puree, salt, pumpkin pie spice, maple syrup, and coconut flour in a bowl until combined.

Once chocolate is hardened, distribute the pumpkin filling evenly into the 12 cups.

The pumpkin filling should not be sticky, so it will be easy to distribute.

Use your fingers to press the filling flat around the edges.

Drizzle the remaining white chocolate over the tops of the pumpkin cups, then sprinkle each cup with flaked sea salt.

Return pan to the freezer for 15 minutes, or until hardened.

And you’re ready to enjoy!

These are best served chilled, and stored in the fridge or the freezer.

If you love the richness of white chocolate, you will love this decadent treat!

I love the extra salty sweetness from the sea salt flakes that really contrast well with the sweetness of the chocolate.

In case you can’t tell from my dark chocolate pumpkin truffles or my vegan pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, I am obsessed with topping my desserts with flaked sea salt!

It really takes desserts to the next level, you have to try it!

I’m not vegan but this looks so good. What can I use instead of coconut flour? Thanks.
