Paleo Reese Cups

I have always had a huge sweet tooth!  I have been known to crave dessert in the evenings and feel that a good meal is not complete without a dessert.  But, does it have to be unhealthy!?  Of course not. Don’t Mess with Mama, released a recipe on her blog for homemade Paleo Reese Cups (Check out her blog!). They looked amazing!  I have tweaked the recipe a bit to our liking and it is delicious!  They practically melt in your mouth!  Okay, enough talking…I’m sure you want the recipe!

Ingredients
  1. 1/2 cup Cashew Butter
  2. 1/4 cup Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
  3. 1/4 cup raw honey
  4. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  5. 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  6. 2 cups Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips (or comparable brand)
Instructions
  1. 1. Combine all ingredients except the chocolate chips in a medium-sized bowl and stir until well mixed. You can use an electric mixer. I mix by hand.
  2. 2. Melt the chocolate chips in a double boiler (you can do it in a microwave but I don’t have one) until it turns into a thick liquid.
  3. 3. Use a muffin pan and line with silicon cupcake liners.
  4. 4. Fill each cupcake liner with about a tablespoon of melted chocolate (it should fill about 1/4 of the liner). Then brush up the chocolate up the sides a bit so it’s at about 1/3 up the liner.
  5. 5. Fill the middle with about 1 1/2 tablespoons of the cashew butter mixture.
  6. Top the butter mixture with another tablespoon of the melted chocolate. Use remaining melted chocolate to top off all cupcake liners.
  7. Store in the refrigerator for about an hour to let it harden.
  8. 6. When ready to serve, take out of the fridge and remove the cupcake liner. They look just like store bought with the fancy ridges!
  9. Keep in the fridge or freezer!
  10. Enjoy as a snack or dessert! Bon appetit!
