Every once in a while, for school, we have a baking day. I love these days and so do our kids! Cooking and baking are skills that are needed and I believe that both girls and boys should be able to cook a great meal and bake a yummy cake and more from scratch. One day, must have been around Easter, we had one of those days… it was a baking type of day.
Peanut Butter Cups!
I am not a big Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup type of gal… I never buy them for myself or eat them when we have them at Halloween. But, my husband loves them. The kids and I decided we would treat my hubby with a healthier (but it is still chocolate) version of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups! My husband was in Heaven with this recipe!
No Oven Necessary!
- 1 1/2 cups *organic or all natural peanut butter (Smucker’s has a really good natural peanut butter)
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 2 bags Dark Chocolate chips
- 1-2 tablespoons coconut oil (optional)
Mix the peanut butter, powdered sugar, and salt in a food processor. Set aside.
Melt chocolate chips in a double boiler with the coconut oil. Add a thin layer of the melted chocolate to the bottom of each mini muffin cup, layer of peanut butter mixture and a top layer of chocolate.
Place them in the fridge or freezer to store or hide till they are set and ready to be eaten! Try not to eat more then 2 in a day… OK… 3! For someone who doesn’t love peanut butter cups… These are AWESOME!
*Quick little note. The reason why I used organic or natural peanut butter is because it has less sugar the conventional peanut butter. Seeing as you are adding sugar to it, this helps to make it not super sweet!
