Peanut Butter Cups {Naturally Sweetened}

I have one tiny confession to make. Up until this past year, I really had no idea what my anniversary date was. I know, it’s the guy’s job to not remember the anniversary, right?

I’m lucky that I have a forgiving husband.

I am the luckiest gal in the world though. We got married on Superbowl weekend. This year, our anniversary fell on Superbowl Sunday. What better way to celebrate Superbowl Sunday than with our anniversary, great food, and a great game?

Peanut Butter Cups {Naturally Sweetened}

Peanut Butter Cups {Naturally Sweetened}

Ingredients

  • 1 12oz bag dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 cup finely ground graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

Instructions

  1. Lightly grease two 24 cup mini muffin pans then set aside.
  2. In a microwave safe bowl, place the butter and then melt. After the butter has melted, pour the coconut sugar in with the butter and stir to mix. Allow the butter mixture to sit and cool, stirring occasionally. The sugar should dissolve in the butter.
  3. In a separate microwave safe bowl, place six ounces of chocolate. Microwave in 30 second increments, stopping to stir until chocolate has melted. Place a thin layer of chocolate in the bottom of each muffin cup to cover.
  4. In a bowl, mix together the graham cracker crumbs, peanut butter and butter mixture from earlier. Stir until mixture is combined and becomes coarse and crumbly. Place approximately one teaspoon of filling in the center of each muffin cup.
  5. Melt the remaining chocolate and spoon over the peanut butter mixture until the muffin cup is filled.
  6. Chill muffin cups in the refrigerator for one hour or until set.
  7. Remove from refrigerator and use a knife to loosen each peanut butter cup.
  8. Makes 48 cups
  9. Variations:
  10. 1. Substitute milk or semi sweet chocolate chips for the dark. 2. Use powdered sugar instead of coconut sugar for the filling to give it more of a Reese’s peanut butter cup taste 3. Use crunchy instead of creamy peanut butter.
  11. Storage:
  12. Store in an airtight container for several days, or in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
