Clean Eating Peanut Butter Cups Recipe

clean eating peanut butter cups
Happy New Year all! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! I sure did, as you can probably tell from my lack of posting, we've been very busy throughout the holiday! Lots of visiting with family and friends, and I loved every minute of it.

I thought it would be fun to share one of my favorite clean eating desert recipes to kick off the new year. Clean Eating Peanut Butter Cups. They got rave reviews from the parties I brought them too this year. They are super yummy. Clean eating doesn't mean bland eating, it can be fun too! Below is a modified version of the recipe from HeandSheEatClean.com (love this blog...I get a lot of clean recipes from it!).

Ingredients:
3/4 cup all natural peanut butter (make sure the only ingredient is peanuts!)
1 heaping tablespoon of natural honey
20 oz of chocolate, 60% cacao, I used 2 bags of Giradelli chips
Mini cupcake paper cups



1 - Mix the peanut butter and honey together and set aside
2 - Melt chocolate chips in the mircowave in 30 second intervals, stirring after each 30 seconds.
3 - Once chocolate is completely melted, pour enough into each little cup to cover the bottom
4 - Layer on a dab of the peanut butter mixture in each cup
5 - Cover the peanut butter mixture with another layer of chocolate
6 - Freeze cups for an hour and the voila! Clean eating peanut butter cups!

This recipe makes about 50 small cups. I purchased a decorative holiday tray from my local grocery story and arranged them on this for the parties I went to. The tray was a nice leave behind as a hostess gift.

What did you bring to holiday parties this year? Or if you hosted, what did the menu include? Please share!


Chocolate Mint Pretzels

I spent a few hours today making 'puppy chow' for my cousin. It's a tradition that I make it every year, and it's priceless to see his face when I give him his own stash. As I was refreshing my memory on how to make it, I came across a Chocolate Mint Pretzel recipe that I have to share from Savory Sweet Life.

I made these pretzels with both white and milk chocolate. I can't wait to go to Target or the dollar store tomorrow to get fun bags or tins to put these in. Using Savory Sweet Life's recipe, these are extremely easy to make. They make a great hostess gift or last minute Christmas gift. Put in a tin and top with a bow!


I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas!
