I’ll share a secret factoid about me. Back in college, I interned at the Reese’s plant in Hershey, PA. It was a pretty cool assignment – I got to work in the OSHA department. But more importantly, as a poor and starving college kid, I got to eat all of the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups I wanted to!

BEST. JOB. EVER!

Since then, my sweet tooth has had an affinity for RPBCs. I’m also in the school that you have to eat them the correct way or don’t even bother eating them at all. First, you nibble around the edges and then you eat the center. Any other method of consumption is completely unacceptable.

And then this whole cancer-autoimmune health crisis happened. I changed my eating habits and learned about the evils of sugar but I was bound and determined to still enjoy my favorite treats.

These peanut butter cups are made with raw cacao, maple syrup as an all-natural sugar, Sunbutter instead of peanut butter, and they are dairy-free and vegan. All things considered, they are still considered a treat and should be enjoyed in moderation.

Recipe Notes and Hacks

There is minimal hands-on time. The majority of the time for this recipe is letting the 3 steps harden up in the refrigerator.

We love Enjoy Life chips for this recipe. You can pick the semi-sweet or dark chocolate, whatever your taste preference is.

Use either a double-boiler or microwave-safe bowl to melt the chocolate. This is a dual-melting process, so be sure to use a bowl that you can easily re-melt at a later time.

When you are not eating, keep these in the fridge as they do melt easily.
