Dark Chocolate Reese’s Cups

Holla if you love chocolate + peanut butter!

WOOOO! 😀

Anything that’s a combo of chocolate and peanut butter is my favorite sweet treat. The two are literally made for each other, no doubt about it.

My absolute favorite candy is Reese’s (go figure) LOL

Since I love baking and I love my chocolate and peanut butter, I decided to whip up a batch of home-made Reese’s cups, with a little healthier twist.

The great thing about this recipe, is the fact you need minimal ingredients!

These are dairy free, grain free, and gluten free.

Let’s get to the recipe!
