Chocolate Sunbutter Cups

Happy Friday my friends!
It was a gorgeous week here in Texas! I know lots of the northeast is covered in snow and it reminds me I am happy I moved south 8 years ago. 😉  If you are in the snow, please be stay safe!
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner.  One of my favorite treats growing up was a peanut butter cup.  The more I learn about health and nutrition, I have come to terms with the idea of pretty much making things with ingredients I know my body will handle and love.  I have toyed around with peanut butter cups in the past, but was never really happy with the outcome.
The other day I had this amazing little treat and it got my brain thinking to try and make my own version again!  I have to say I am pretty pleased with how mine turned out 🙂

Today I am linking up with Farrah from Fairyburger and  Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama for a 5 ingredient or less themed week!
