Foodie Friday: Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day weekend!  I love when a holiday, no matter what it is, is on a Saturday!! It makes the entire weekend seem special!
Foodie Friday AND a holiday together make it even more special!
When I think of Valentine’s Day, I think of chocolate! I mean, what else would I think of as the Chocolate Runner girl?!? Ha!! I especially think of Reeses peanut butter cups!  Something about peanut butter and chocolate together just make me happy!  And the pretty little wrappers made me happy too 🙂
As I have worked on eating less food that is processed, I have tried to use different whole foods to satisfy my sweet tooth!

Today I am linking up once again with my Favorite Foodie Friday ladies, Farrah from Fairyburger, Emily from Whatever Floats Your Oats and Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama and Cassandra from Powered by BLING! Today our theme is a Valentine’s Treat!

Almond Chocolate Cup
Ingredients
1. I cup of my homemade almond butter (minus the chocolate, but I am sure it would be great with the chocolate too!) You can also use a store bought almond butter, but make sure it is super smooth.
2. 3/4 cup chocolate chips, melted with 1TBS coconut oil.
3. Mini wrappers

Directions
1. Make almond butter, or smooth out store bought variety.

      I am with you! Love Reese’s products, but not thrilled with all the junk in them. These are really perfect! Almost too perfect cause they are so easy and can be whipped up so quickly! Enjoy 🙂
