Faux Peanut Butter Cups

Who doesn’t love Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups? But well are Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups gluten free? That is a good question, after a search on the inter webs I have have see a few yes’s and a few no’s. On Reese’s website it says see package. The few packages I have seen do say they are, but they are not dairy free. As always, I would read the package to be sure… things often change. In any case, the store bought cups are not in the least healthy so I have come up with top 8 allergen free recipe that is pretty close and delish!

So you are going to need: honey, coconut oil, palm sugar, coconut flour, Chocolate chips, salt and SunButter.

This time I used these chips from Equal Exchange. I found them at Target and they are top 8 allergen free. I went with the semi-sweet but next time I would probably use the dark chocolate. These seem really soft and melt very fast in your hands 🙂

I melted the chips and coconut oil  in this Wilton Candy melt pot, if you don’t have one of these you can use a double boiler.

Then I lined a mini muffin pan with paper cups and filled the bottoms with the melted chocolate. I placed them in the freezer so they would harden faster.

You could also use silicone regular muffin cups if you wish larger cups.

While those were hardening I put the filling ingredients in the food processor and mixed them.

I took the hardened chocolate out of the freezer and then filled the cups with the filling mixture. Topped them with more chocolate and placed back in the freezer to harden.

I would keep these in the fridge, they seem to melt quick but they are delicious! Much healthier than the store bought stuff!
