A healthier recipe for Easter chocolates, this rich, smooth and sweet peanut butter centre is coated in dark chocolate
Peanut butter lovers, where you at?
So I’m one of those people that could eat peanut butter straight out the jar with a spoon. In fact, I sometimes do … but only when no-one else is around to witness my regression into the primal human state.
To witness the moment where I inelegantly succumb to the base desire of my taste buds would likely be a somewhat disturbing experience for those more conscious homo sapiens … LOL!
How do you increase the pleasure value of peanut butter?
Simple. Add chocolate!
And Voila! Neanderthal brain triggered. Haha!
Let’s make it healthier…
The US company that makes Reese’s peanut butter eggs knew this and capitalised on it for sure. If you have ever had a Reese’s peanut butter egg you know what I mean. New love for America after I tasted my first one of those!
Luckily we don’t get them readily available where I’m from, otherwise I’m quite sure I’d potentially have diabetes by now…
To satisfy the neanderthal in me, I have made these healthier copycat Reese’s eggs. They are also great as gifts for Easter in place of the less healthy store-bought varieties, alongside these simple salted-caramel chocolates in a cute gift box; besides, homemade Easter eggs are always appreciated.
Just be sure to leave the room when anyone decides to give one a taste!
