    Wow! Seriously, wow! I am not really big on sweets, but I have always had a weakness for peanut butter cups! Except yours are not just run-of-them-mill peanut butter cups, these look and sound luscious and man look at that peanut butter in the center! Totally drooling over here and wishing I had these now!

    Can you substitute coco powder?

    • Delicious Meets Healthy (author)

      Yes, i think you can!

  • Janet Shenoy

    I’m completely addicted to these! I make my own cashew butter and use that in place of the peanut butter. Either way it’s FANTASTIC!!! It also has ways less sugar (honey), so when I eat other things made with chocolate I find them too sweet.
