Inside Out Double Peanut Butter Cups

Inside out PB Cups (13)text

Alright, listen up peanut-butter lovers: Double. Peanut. Butter. Chocolate peanut butter inside, peanut butter coating outside. See, there’s this spread. Dark chocolate Peanut Butter spread. It’s like nutella, but not. Think spreadable Reese’s, but not so cloyingly sweet. I actually really like how this spread is not very sweet at all.

However, we have two jars of this spread, and they needed to be consumed in a socially acceptable way. I.e, not straight up on a spoon. Don”t look at me like that, you’ve done it. Don’t lie.

So there I stood, in front of the pantry with this jar in my hand, wondering what to do with it. Then I remembered Ashley’s awesome post. My version isn’t all-natural and super-cool like hers is, but it works for me. My dad loves peanut butter, and this is at least a more healthy choice than Reese’s. And more aesthetically pleasing. Plus, I stuck to 5 ingredients (insert slow uncertain clapping here). Honestly, I just love the way they look. Better than boring old peanut butter cups.

So even if I’m not a peanut butter lover (I’d prefer the extra shot of chocolate, please), I know that people are, so this one’s for you.
