Nut Butter Cups

I decided to google the ingredients of a REAL Reese's Peanut Butter Cup and HOLY COW YUCK!!!!!

Milk Chocolate (Milk Chocolate contains Sugar, Cocoa Butter, Chocolate, Nonfat Milk, Milk Fat, Lactose, and Soya Lecithin and PGPR (as Emulsifiers), Peanuts, Sugar, Dextrose, Salt, and TBHQ and Citric Acid (to Preserve Freshness)

Honestly, HOW IS THIS EVEN ALLOWED! And to think of ALL the people who eat this stuff! And all the kids! Its overwhelming.

If you are unsure, just begin to google some of these ingredients. You will be amazed and probably NEVER eat another Reese's Peanut Butter Cup again!

Here is a MUCH better option!

Nut Layer:
1 cup of Organic Crunchy or Creamy Peanut Butter or Raw Almond Butter
2 TBSP Honey
1 tsp Vanilla
¼ cup Coconut Oil
1 tsp vanilla (optional)

Chocolate Layer:
1 Cup of Organic Dark Chocolate Chips
3 TBSP butter
1 tsp Vanilla

1.     Place Nut Butter, Coconut Oil and Honey in bowl and combine by mixing with a spoon until smooth.
2.     Drop by spoonful into mini muffin tins (24) filling tin ½ way
3.     Place mini muffin tin in freezer
4.     In a small sauce pan, on LOW, melt Chocolate Chips, Butter and Vanilla, stirring constantly
5.     Once melted, take mini muffin pan out of freezer and top with chocolate mixture.
6.     Freeze for 1-2 hours.
7.     Pop out with a dull butter knife.

TIPS:  These are REAL so they WILL melt! Eat directly from Freezer or Fridge. Store in Fridge.
