Homemade Peanut Butter Chocolate Cups Recipe

Homemade peanut butter chocolate cups, only five ingredients needed. 

Today I am sharing my yummy, healthier peanut butter cups. I love the peanut butter and chocolate combination and am so obsessed with this healthy version that I make a big batch every week.

Think Reese’s peanut butter cups but made from healthier ingredients. Easy to make and not full of all the sugar that the shop brought ones are. Full of protein too, they will fuel and energise you, while tasting like an indulgent treat.

You can even make the recipe even simpler by melting dark chocolate and using that instead of making the cacao chocolate like I did below. Dark chocolate is still much better for you than normal chocolate.

Use a good silicone muffin case for these so that you can get them out easily once set. I really like this one, I use it for everything.

I really hope you enjoy this recipe these Healthy Peanut Butter Chocolate Cups. Be sure to tag me on social media if you try them. This recipe is gluten free, vegan, diary free and wheat free.
