Delicious peanut butter and chocolate treats!!

These are a delicious alternative to processed peanut butter cups.  I chose to make them into balls because it was easier but they can be pressed into muffin cups to resemble the other peanut butter cups.

  • 3/4 cup of nuts- I have used pecans and walnuts but peanuts would be great too!
  • 3/4 cup dried pitted dates
  • 3 tablespoons of 100% cacoa unsweetened - usually in the baking section
  • 2 Tbsp. natural peanut butter- no sugar added
Place all the ingredients into a food processor and blend until crumbly.  I rolled them into balls but they could be pressde into a large bar and divided.

They make a great no sugar added treat and will help satisfy your sweet tooth!!
