Gluten-Free Does Not Mean Flavor Free
I love Reese's peanut butter cups but they have become more and more artificial over the years (or maybe I can taste the artificial ingredients more than I used to be able to) and I just wanted something a little more "healthy" for my junk food or at least more natural.
I tried this recipe twice - the first time I forgot to measure anything so the second time, I measured as I went.
1/2 cup all natural *peanut butter (just peanuts and maybe salt)
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 tbsps honey
3/4 cup chocolate chips (make sure the kind you pick is gluten-free)
Place peanut butter in medium mixing bowl, sift powdered sugar in and stir in along with honey. Mix until it's all a smooth consistency (if you use "crunchy" peanut butter it won't be as smooth). Shape into 1 inch balls and place on wax paper covered cookie sheet. If you make the peanut butter balls too big, it will throw off the chocolate to peanut butter ratio.
Melt the chocolate chips in a small glass bowl in microwave for 1 minute (they won't be melted all the way, just stir them to finish the process).
Dip the peanut butter balls into chocolate and place back onto waxed paper. If it's a warm day, place in refrigerator or freezer to harden the chocolate. Store in covered container in refrigerator for best results.
*Can use crunchy or smooth peanut butter
**Depending on the chocolate chips you choose, this can also be casein free.
