Easy Paleo Reese's™ Cups

Mix up a splendidly simple batch of paleo-approved sweets. Raw almond butter, sweetened with raw honey and inside good-for-you chocolate, topped with sea salt.

Ingredients

1
(10 oz.) bag dark chocolate chips
3/4
cup raw almond butter (or peanut butter, if not strict Paleo)
1/3
cup raw unfiltered honey
1
teaspoon vanilla (or caviar from 1 scraped vanilla bean)
1
tablespoon sea salt flakes (like Maldon™)
Special equipment: parchment or silicone cupcake liners

Directions

  • 1 Line a 12-cup muffin tin with cupcake liners. Set aside.
  • 2 In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave chocolate chips in 30-second bursts, stirring between, until smooth. Drizzle 2-3 teaspoons of chocolate into the bottom of each cup, just enough to cover the bottom with chocolate.
  • 3 In a medium-sized bowl, mix together almond butter, honey and vanilla. Drop 1 heaping tablespoon into the center of each chocolate-filled cup.
  • 4 Rap muffin tin against table several times to even out the almond butter filling. Cover with chocolate, sprinkle with sea salt. Allow chocolate to harden before serving. Refrigerate for 10-20 minutes to speed up the hardening process, if desired.

Step By Step  

Gluten-free, sweetened with raw honey and only 4 ingredients, this simple recipe is about to change the way you feel about healthy treats!

Recipe inspiration from Simple Green Moms

I think there’s this misconception that making healthy foods means using a bunch of weird old ingredients, mixing them together in unfamiliar and absurd ways, mixing and molding it all together to create a finished product that tastes like fake figs rolled in buckwheat.

Not so appetizing, eh? No wonder we sneak candy bars into our grocery carts while standing in line at the store. Naughty food is just so.much.yummier.

Except. It’s totally not!

Forget everything you ever thought about gluey gluten-free eats and chalky sugar substitutes. Good for you desserting should taste good. And it can be wondrously easy. And so good. Have I mentioned…good? And delicious.

Take, for instance, these Paleo Reeses Cups. Exactly 4 ingredients. Exactly 10 minutes of prep. Exactly yummyscrumptious. Toss those prepackaged candy bars. Whip up a batch of these wonderful treats, instead. Gluten-free, sweetened with raw honey and even tastier than the originals, this simple recipe is about to change the way you feel about healthy treats.

 

Paleo reeses cups

To get started, line a muffin tin with silicone or parchment cupcake wrappers. A standard size 12-cup muffin tin makes perfect little “Reeses” cups. But you can also use a mini muffin tin, too.

Melt some stevia or grain-sweetened chocolate (there are several brands available online, but I prefer to use the Enjoy Life! Chips) and drizzle a small amount into the bottom of a muffin pan.

Mix together raw almond butter and raw honey (plus a splash of vanilla) and spoon a small amount of this mixture on top of your layer of melted chocolate.

Now rap your pan, forcing the almond butter to settle into the chocolate, then cover with another drizzle of chocolate, rap your pan against the table one more time to even the layers out…

Then sprinkle it all with a smidgen of sea salt. Coarse sea salt will work beautifully. But I LOVE the Maldon sea salt flakes, as well. They’re just so gorgeous for garnishments like this.

Pop your chocolate cups into the fridge for about 20 minutes, allowing them to cool and harden.

Then peel those gorgeous cuppies right out of their cups.

Being a caveeater has never tasted so good. Enjoy!
