Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Spread some of the melted chocolate in this Peanut Butter Cup Mold (or Silicone Cupcake Molds), creating a base and “walls” of chocolate. Refrigerate until chocolate has hardened.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the caramel sauce and almond milk.  Stir in the peanut flour.  Mixture should be thick, like cookie dough.  Fill the chocolate cups with the mixture and spread it out.
  3. Press the peanuts into the filling.
  4. Spoon the remaining melted chocolate on top to coat.  Tap the tray/liners on the counter until the chocolate levels out. Refrigerate until firm. Pop the cups out of the mold, then serve and enjoy!

  1. Awesome! I can’t wait for your book!
    I love your food props. Can’t underestimate their power 🙂

    • Marie-
      Aw thanks Marie! I have soooo many props (there are even MORE that didn’t fit on the shelves). I still haven’t used like, half of them… sometimes I just buy props without thinking of an actual application for them! 😉

  2. This was a really fun read… I love seeing behind the scenes stuff. You colourful prop collection is awesome. We are so similar in our food philosophy too… oh and I also have a pull up bar in my door way ha ha. Good luck with the book!!

  3. I enjoyed your behind the scenes tour! I have been following your blog for quite some time now and always enjoy the creativity of your recipes using real and wholesome ingredients. Congrats on the cookbook! That is really neat and I wish you best success with your ventures.

  4. It’s crazy how delicious yet healthy these snickers candy cups are! I think I definitely would love your cookbook as well – as I love protein bars but am guilty of buying them at the store.. I really want to make my own at home. Where and when can I get a copy? x

    • Thalia-
      I know! Who needs to buy candy from the store when there’s THIS?! 😉
      And thank you so much! I hope you like the cookbook 🙂
      I literally just finished proofreading the entire thing a couple hours ago, so the book should be ready by the end of November!
      EEK!! 😀

  5. This is my favorite, I love this combination milk chocolate, caramel and peanuts. When my husband saw this recipe, told me to cook as fast as I can, he is a big fan snickers.

  8. I loved this! As a healthy food blogger myself it can be hard to explain to people how time consuming it can be, especially on top of a job, volunteering, etc.

    I love your recipes AND your photos. Can’t wait to get my greedy little foodie hands on the book!

    Congratulations on your success — you deserve it!
