Healthier Peanut Butter Cups
In the Sarr household we are faithful desserts every night. We enjoy life. We enjoy dessert. I exercise regularly so I can eat desserts regularly! We do try to aim for healthier dessert options, though.
A few years ago I almost completely stopped buying food with high fructose corn syrup. What we have noticed when you take ingredients out of your house like high fructose corn syrup, your taste buds change. This artificial sweetener makes food overly sugary sweet, and has really destroyed the taste buds of the United States. I could go on, but I’ll refrain for now. All that to say, we still REALLY enjoy dessert as we are trying balance life and be good stewards of the temple with which God has entrusted us.
When I was in high school my ‘frugal girls’ friend/matron of honor and I used to exchange bags of Reece’s Mini Peanut Butter Cups and eat almost the whole bag in one setting. I can’t believe we used to eat like this. I would get a gut ache now if I did that. I was really excited when I found and adapted this recipe from The Nourishing Gourmet. I did make a few slight changes to the recipe and will offer a few helpful hints I wish I would have know when I starting making these since I’ve made it several times now:)!
I love that this recipe only has 5 ingredients. Sometimes I even leave out the honey, so it’s really 4 ingredients.
If you want my
lazy efficient way of making this recipe, you can try my 3 ingredient chocolate peanut butter cups.
