Ask me what my favorite candy bar is. Go ahead…ask me. Why, thanks for asking! Peanut Butter Cups. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. I am a sucker for them. Especially the mini ones you just pop into your mouth. I lose track of how many I actually eat. It’s a problem really.
Who remembers those TV commercials from way back when?
Today’s peanut butter cup is all grown up and easy to make at home. Simple ingredients like dark chocolate, coconut oil and pure vanilla extract. And peanut butter of course. I am actually surprised at how easy it is and how well they turned out. Mr. Beet is a fan and that’s always a plus. I made a batch and stored them in the refrigerator and we snacked on them for a few days.
The key to making them healthier is to use organic and natural peanut butter as well as high quality dark chocolate. I also use organic coconut oil. The higher quality of ingredients the better the result in my opinion. If you are going to go through the motions of making peanut butter cups at home, why not make them with the best ingredients you can find. This is always especially important when you are using a small number of ingredients.
I hope you enjoy!
