How to Make 100% Paleo-Approved “Peanut” Butter Cups

One of my all time favorite candies, is a Reese® Peanut Butter Cup. Sometimes when I’m eating them, I feel like my sugar meter is broken and could house an entire bag of those mini cups. In one sitting. With little to no guilt. Because—they are delicious. 

Two things I have since learned is, one, Sugar is not my friend, even though I so enjoy its company. And two, dairy basically makes me sick. 

With that, I decided to try my hand at making my own version. And let me tell you, these did not disappoint! 

These are Paleo friendly, dairy-free, refined sugar-free, soy free and peanut free. And they are still amazing!

They may not taste exactly like the original, but they are damn close! I had to make myself walk away before things got serious around here. 

Here’s what you need
