Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

Fate brought chocolate and peanut butter  together. I mean, is there a more perfect pair than these two? Rhetorical question. Because we all know the answer is YES!

These bite-sized chocolate peanut butter cups are decadent, delicious, and just so darn cute! And they are brimming with nutrients your body will be so grateful for!

The chocolate peanut butter filling is packed with healthy fats and antioxidants. The crust is fiber-rich with an additional boost of plant-based protein. And the taste?? Well, that’s the most important part of all. Oh em gee they are so rich, creamy, and perfectly sweet!

These little bite sized treats are perfect for every occasion (not that you need an occasion to enjoy them) and look super fancy but they are pretty simple to make.

I even made a video for you guys to show you how! Enjoy!
