Hold onto your hats guys, because today I am sharing a very yummy little treat that the whole family will enjoy! These Peanut Butter and Caramel Chocolate Cups is absolutely moreish and SO easy to make. The kids will love to get involved in this process, so remember to make these treats while they are on their much deserved holiday.
My son just loves the Reeses peanut butter cups. I do too, to a very disturbing point. And then you will also find me dunking dessert spoons into my jar of PB! (I know I am not the only one here.) He did challenge me the other day to do a homemade version of his favourite treat, so I guess I had to pretty much get cracking in the kitchen… I much rather prefer that he stuff his face with a cleaner, healthier version of this popular treat, so let’s jump straight in.
While being on a mission to cut out sugar and all the other nasty processed foods, sweets and treats are still our family’s weak point. I wanted to create a version of Peanut Butter and Caramel Chocolate Cups that are healthier, less processed and made with natural ingredients.
All you need for the perfect no-guilt treat:
I went the dark chocolate route and used Lindt 70% – but you can use any other chocolate you like. For the caramel I used naturally sweet dates with vanilla essence to add to the filling with organic, natural, smooth peanut butter. The results are pretty darn amazing, let’s hope we don’t finish this batch by ourselves.
