Bring it on, REESES.

Yup, I am challenging another company again today. My competition: REESE'S.

I love peanut butter and I loveeeeee chocolate. I don't like though, just how unhealthy those suckers are. At 210 calories a piece, each weighs in at a hefty price. I wanted to create something just as good, but for almost half the calories. I give you: my version of a Reese's peanut butter cup!

Just an indication of HOW GOOD this is... My mom sampled this and the first thing she said was "THIS TASTES LIKE IT HAS 500 CALORIES!"

p.s. I am sorry that it is not actually a cup. I did not have the patience and honestly, I just wanted to eat the damn thing!

The stats: 1 LARGE peanut butter cup has.... only 140 calories and its 2x the size! That's right ladies!

You need:
3 tbsp PB2
2 tbsp chocolate chips (I use Sunspire organics-70 cal. for 2 tbsp)

Heat chocolate in microwave for about 30 seconds
Add to pb2
Mix, put into a cupcake tin, and FREEZE for ~20 minutes.

ENJOY. I hope I JUST changed your life.


  1. EVERY one of your posts changes my life!

    Do you think peanut flour would work in place of PB2?!

  2. whoa! i love your blog!!

    i used to love reese but i'm too scare to eat it now bc of the allergy, sigh!

  3. I have never tried PB2....perhaps this recipe makes it worth the investment! looks awesome!

  4. I love reese's...and yes, I hate the calorie count too! I am a huge fan of peanut butter!

  5. Love this! I have an obsession with peanut butter, combine with chocolate and I am in heaven :) I bet this would work with peanut flour, and you would get double the protein. Score! Thanks for checking out my blog, I just subscribed to yours. You rock girl!

  6. LOVE your blog!! I actually make peanut butter cups all the time using cocoa powder and coconut oil and then putting some peanut butter between them and adding more chocolate on top. It is very dark but VERY yummy. Once again, great blog!!

  7. I've been dying to try PB2 for some time now and I think your post just pushed me to the edge :P
    Where on earth do you buy that stuff anyway? I live in Canada, Quebec so if anybody, ANYBODY knows the nearest place could you please let me know? (Maybe e-mail me, or leave a comment on my blog)
    Thank you so much,
    And Lisa, enjoy your Reeses - they look AMAZING!

  8. I don't have PB2 but I have peanut flour, maybe I'll try it with that instead.

    I *love* Reese's and yours looks like a much better alternative! Thanks!
