Have your Cake and Eat it Too!


It doesn’t matter if you celebrate Easter or not, if you walk into any store there’s tons of candy all around tempting us into a sugar high! I’m all about healthy living and that means not depriving yourself of the things you love. Part of having your cake and eating it too is to make substitutions when you can so you enjoy a healthier treat. Candy is still candy, but when you make it yourself you know the ingredients that are going into it and can use portion control. Plus I love being in the kitchen! Dark chocolate peanut butter cups are one of my favorite candies so I decided to recreate my own. I used this¬†recipe from the Sprouted Kitchen and substituted almond butter for peanut butter because that’s what I was craving.

This can get messy… Don’t wear white!

Make sure to press down the peanut butter mixture so that the chocolate on top dries flat.
