    This recipe is technically supposed to be shared in April. But I couldn’t wait any longer. Plus Easter is this weekend and ya’ll NEED to make these because they are bomb.

    The first food Jord and I truly bonded over were Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs. Those yellow wrapper easter themed Reese’s that hit the spot every single time. Except I haven’t had one of those gems since we first started dating. I wonder from time to time what I would think of them if I ate one now, but why eat them when you can make your own homemade Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Caramel Eggs that are gluten, dairy and refined sugar-free?!

    These homemade peanut butter eggs are so simple and easy to make and they have a sweet caramel and peanut butter-like center. They are sweetened with my favorite Manuka Honey from Wedderspoon. In case you haven’t noticed yet, Wedderspoon is my absolute favorite honey company. They sell quality honey that is sourced from the best bee’s and it truly tastes amazing. I love sweetening my recipes with it and especially for no-bake ones so the benefits of manuka honey are there!

    These Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Caramel Eggs will be the ultimate crowd pleaser this weekend and beyond. They’re perfectly acceptable to make after the holiday weekend and all year!

    WHAT YOU NEED

    Wedderspoon Manuka Honey

    Pitted dates

    Creamy peanut butter 

    Sprouted rolled oats

    Dark chocolate (I used this one – code rachLcoconutcups for free chocolate with orders!)
