There’s nothing wrong with a little trick-or-treating but some Halloween goodies can be downright spooky! Why not make a few of the classics on your own, and eliminate some of the preservatives found in store-bough treats? Here’s a recipe for one of our favorites: peanut butter cups.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Goodness
Store-bought candies come with preservatives, emulsifiers and highly processed sweeteners. These 3-ingredient confections have none of the junk and couldn’t be more simple and delicious; just try to save some for the kiddies!

Peanut Butter Cups
These cups are generously-sized – each is made with 1 ounce of chocolate. You can make them half-sized to cut back on calories.

Makes 12 pieces (6 dark chocolate and 6 milk chocolate)

6 ounces dark chocolate, broken into pieces
6 ounces milk chocolate, broken into pieces
6 teaspoons peanut butter

Coarse sea salt (optional)

Equipment: Mini cupcake pan and paper liners

Place liners in pan and set aside. Place milk and dark chocolate in separate glass containers. To melt, microwave on high in 30-second increments, stirring frequently until melted. Fill each paper liner one-third of the way with melted chocolate. Add a half teaspoon of peanut butter on each piece and top with remaining chocolate. Sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt if desired.

Place in the refrigerator until chocolate sets completely – about 45 minutes. Wrap peanut butter cups in cellophane bags or store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
