Are you a sucker for a Reese Peanut Butter Cup? I am! I eat the outside first, saving the savory Peanut Butter center for last! YUMMMM!
So what's the problem? A Reece is full of unhealthy fats, sugar, preservatives, and a whole list of ingredients that I can't pronounce. Not good.
The solution? I whipped up a recipe makeover for the Peanut Butter Inside of a Reese without the annoying Choc Outside, excessive calories, and all of that other BAD stuff!
What You'll Need:
- 3 Cups Peanuts, Unsalted
- 4 tsp Maple Syrup or Honey
- 1/4 tsp Celtic Sea Salt
- Choc Chips (optional)
- Make Peanut Butter in a Vitamix or other high speed blender. For Vitamix, simply put in 3 cups of Peanut Butter in Vitamix. Start on Speed 1 and increase to High. Use the tamper to push nuts into the blade. After a minute or so the peanuts should be ground into Peanut Butter.
- Measure out 4 oz of the Peanut Butter. Place the remaining Peanut Butter in an air tight container and store in the fridge for 2-3 weeks.
- Combine 4 oz Peanut Butter, maple syrup, and salt. Stir until it becomes somewhat pasty.
- Roll the mixture into 20 small balls.
- (If desired) Press 1 Choc Chip into the center of each ball.
- Place in fridge or freezer to harden.
- Store in fridge or freezer.
