Healthy “Reeses” Peanut Butter Cups

by Arielle J on October 9, 2012


Growing up, my all time fave
treat was a Reeses peanut butter cup.

Introducing…a healthified peanut butter cup!

SO easy (takes less than 10 minutes to make)
SO healthy (dark chocolate + nut butter)
SO amazingly delish (my friends + colleages LOVED them)

Perfect for Halloween,
a b’day party, dinner party, and
healthy enough to eat after-work/after-school.


Healthy “Reeses” Pieces Peanut Butter Cups

What You Need:
– 2 bags dark chocolate
– 1-2 cups freshly ground peanut butter (or sunflower butter/almond butter/cashew butter)
sea salt (optional)

1. Melt chocolate in a pan (low-medium heat, stirring occasionally)

2. Once chocolate is melted, carefully pour chocolate into cupcake wrappers (eco-friendly or silicone)

3. Spread chocolate up the sides (using a pastry brush or spoon)

4. Refrigerate for about 3-5 min (until hardens)

5. Take out of refrigerator and place a dollop of peanut putter inside cup (flatten with finger)

7. optional- I used freshly ground peanut butter made solely of peanuts (no added sugar, oil or salt), so I added a touch of pink himalayan sea salt for some extra flavor.

8. pour rest of melted chocolate on top

8. refrigerate for about 10 min (until fully hardened)

Take a bite and enjoy!
