Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are definitely a favorite with you guys and for a good reason. Motivated by my love for this classic candy, I developed this recipe for amazing Healthy Homemade Peanut Butter Cups. This recipe is full of simple ingredients, and you probably already have them to hand. The combination of peanuts and chocolate is arguably the best. Like you, I love a peanut butter cups, but I am conscious of the fact that they can be full of refined sugar, unhealthy preservatives, and unnatural flavors. Hence, this amazing recipe! I know you are thinking it must be hard to create that peanut butter cup shape but it really is as easy as starting with some cupcake pan liners. From there, I mix up the chocolate sauce. Instead of using store bought chocolate, I melt together coconut oil, cocoa powder and maple syrup and that’s it. You would not believe how lovely this chocolate sauce is, it makes the perfect base for my Healthy Homemade Peanut Butter Cups. After I spoon the chocolate mixture into the cupcake liners I pop it in the fridge to set and get on with the peanut butter filling. The filling is made with just 2 wholesome ingredients, peanut butter and maple syrup. The peanut butter mixture is layered on top of the chocolate base then covered with the remaining chocolate sauce. With the perfect rich chocolate outside and chewy peanut butter middle these are sure to cure you of all your candy cravings!
