I’ve already confessed my love for crappy Halloween candy, and how I’m not so enthralled by it these days.
But today’s the day.
The real test….er whatever.
I saw this recipe on The Civilized Caveman, and decided to make it.
Just in case I get a hankering for one of those darned Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
The recipe had the option to make your own chocolate or use store-bought. I decided to make my own…and it was unbelievably good if I do say so. Cocoa powder, coconut oil, vanilla, a little maple syrup and a pinch of salt. I’ll probably never go back to store bought chocolate…I actually bought a candy mold so that I can make my own from now on. Crazy? Maybe…but it was that good.
I filled my chocolate cups with pumpkin pecan butter.
These are a delicious, healthier version of a Reese’s cup.
You can find the recipe on Civilized Caveman Cooking Creations
I have to keep reminding myself that they’re still candy-like…so that I don’t trick myself into believing that they’re a great way to get healthy fats.
What healthy treats are you eating this Halloween?
