Peanut butter and chocolate are a match made in heaven and while Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are pretty tasty, they also contain an alarming about of ingredients.
For a simple snack, you would imagine there wouldn’t be any need for more than a handful of different ingredients, sadly the opposite is true for Reese’s.
However, we’ve got a recipe for some copycat peanut butter cups that are made up of just three ingredients meaning they’re healthier and a whole lot tastier!
In fact, they’re pretty much guilt free as well, so you can have a delicious treat without any of those nagging thoughts about calories or chemicals.
- 200 grams of dark chocolate
- 3/4 cups of Peanut Butter* (try and use organic if possible)
- 4 tablespoons of coconut oil
*Peanut butter can be swapped for any other kind of nut butter.
Melt the chocolate and two tablespoons of coconut oil in a bain marie.
Turn off the heat once melted, but leave on the pot to keep the mixture warm.
In a bowl, combine the peanut butter and the remaining coconut oil and set aside.
Add one spoon of the melted chocolate to muffin/cupcake liners. (Enough to cover the bottom of the liner)
Place in the freezer for two minutes to set.
Add a scoop of the peanut butter mixture on top of the now set chocolate and the return to the freezer for further two minutes.
Add a final scoop of melted chocolate over the peanut butter centre.
Place back in the freezer to firmly set for about 15-30 minutes before serving.
