If you have a Reeses addiction like me then these peanut butter cups are a delicious guilt free alternative… kind of…
I say kind of, because they are quite high in calories due to the amount of fat from the oil and peanut butter.
However, all of the ingredients used to make these are all natural and organic and not highly processed like actual Reeses which makes them a lot better in terms of their nutritional value. The recipe is by Roz Purcell aka NATURAL BORN FEEDER.
It’s so simple to make these and requires so little effort that I didn’t even bother weighing oit ingredients or anything.
Be sure to put the baking case onto a flat try that will fit into the fridge before filling up. Otherwise it is very tricky to pick them up while hot.
Raw chocolate powder
Simply melt equal quantities of the coconut oil and maple syrup in a small pan.
Mix in the chocolate powder until it incorporates to a smooth rich syrup.
Put the backing on a flat tray and fill up halfway.
Put them into the fridge for 10-15 mins.
Take the tray out and fill with peanut butter.
Top off with the remaining melted chocolate and chill them for at least 1 hour.
If the chocolate in the lan starts to go hard, put it back on the heat for a few minutes and it will begin to loosen up. Of not add more of the oil.
