Will the peanut butter cup obsession ever come to an end? Going to go with a big fat NO here.
Peanut butter and chocolate and I go way back. Back to when I used to take gymnastics in elementary school (I am the most uncoordinated human ever) and the only way my Mom could get me to go was to buy me Reese’s Pieces afterwards from the vending machine.
Then there was my blizzards phase. Anyone else used to get those at the ice cream shop? I’d get peanut butter cups or Reese’s Pieces blended into chocolate soft serve. I’m craving it just thinking about it…
There is just something about dark chocolate and creamy peanut butter combined that makes my stomach go crazy. I crave it daily, eat it daily and I wouldn’t have it any other way. But now that I have these homemade Crispy Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups in my life, my intake of peanut butter and chocolate just got even more crazy.
I love making homemade cups like these. They are so easy and quick to make. I also love that I can control the ingredients in them. No palm oils or refined sugars in my homemade cups and I’m able to control the sugars.
For these Crispy Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups I am using my favorite sweetener for no-bake recipes, manuka honey! Wedderspoon’s manuka honey is absolutely insane. It is the only honey I use in the kitchen and I love how it adds a touch of sweetness and how their honey is actually good quality. It is sourced from New Zealand and you guys have seen me using their products like crazy on the blog.
