Hey guys, so I don’t know if you have noticed but I sort have been looking for healthier alternatives that can be dupes for the processed sugary candy bars that we all secretly love but know that too many of them can be a bad thing. So this week I decided to try out this Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups recipe that I think you’ll love just as much as the real thing!
What you need:
12-15 Ounces of Chocolate Chips
¼ Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
2 Tablespoons Honey
2 Tablespoons Coconut Flour
½ Cup Almond Butter (Smooth)
3 Tablespoons Coconut Oil
2 Teaspoons Leaner Creamer Original
Okay the really cool thing about this recipe is that it’s super simple!
What you need to do:
- First thing’s first like always it begins with a food processor. So whip out your food processor and begin by adding the almond butter 2 Tablespoons of the coconut oil, coconut flour, honey, Leaner Creamer and vanilla.
While it’s in the food processor make sure it gets mixed well and make sure you get every single part of the mix blended by scraping the sides if needed.
Now here comes the looooooooooooong part about this recipe, it’s still simple it’s just going to take a bit of time.
- It’s time to melt the chocolate. Okay so you’ll melt the chocolate chips with 1 tablespoon of coconut oil by using a glass bowl over low heat.
So how do you do this?
Okay so fill a saucepan with about one inch to two inches of water and put the chocolate filled glass bowl on top. Turn on the heat to low-medium and the chocolate will melt slowly. When it’s getting near to the end slowly stir the chocolate to ensure that it’s as smooth as can be.
(SIDE NOTE: Try not to get impatient because if you increase the heat the chocolate will melt at a rapid rate but the chocolate may become chunky which is the opposite of what we need).
- Line a muffin tin with muffin cups, depending on what you have around determines the size of the chocolates.
So add about 1 teaspoon of chocolate to the bottom of eat cup. Add a about a tablespoon of the almond butter mixture on top.
Then cover with the remaining chocolate.
(SIDE NOTE: Try not to go too overboard with the chocolate because you can run out of chocolate and that’s a bad thing if you still have cups that need to be filled with chocolate).
- Refrigerate the chocolates for about an hour and half or until the chocolate cups are solid.
(SIDE NOTE: Use your best judgement. And if you take them out a bit early that’s okay no judgement here it’s still as delicious as if they were frozen!)
Okay so there you have it folks a wonderful and delicious recipe!
