Sugar Free Peanut Butter Cups

There is no greater food combination than peanut butter and chocolate.

End of story. 😉

This is another candy re-do for you to enjoy that still has ALL the sweet flavor but NONE of the guilt.

Eating healthy is indulgent, too!

I am out to prove that there ARE healthier options for those times when you want something sweet rather than savory.

FILLING

3/4 cup no sugar added peanut butter

1 tsp vanilla extract

COATING

1 cup melted dark chocolate (I use this brand of chocolate bars and melt them down down)

  1. In a small sauce pan, melt the filling ingredients.
  2. Pour the mixture into molds (I used silicone pumpkin shaped molds, you can use any shape you’d like but I would suggest silicone for easy removal)
  3. Put in freezer for at least an hour.
  4. Melt the chocolate to make the coating.
  5. Remove the molds from freezer and place on parchment paper.
  6. Pour melted chocolate into the molds about half way up.
  7. Drop the frozen peanut butter pumpkins back into the molds and press down so the chocolate encases the peanut butter. You might need to use your fingers to cover completely.
  8. Place in refrigerator to let cool. Store in the refrigerator.
