Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Cups Recipe

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.

Method:

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.
