What's better than the classic combination of peanut butter and jelly? Peanut butter and jelly AND chocolate. This snack puts a healthier twist on a Reese's cup that we all know and love. With no added sugar and just three ingredients, these cups are a simple and delicious snack or dessert!
You can make one cup, or you can make a whole batch at one time. All you need is: dark chocolate chips, reduced sugar jelly (whatever kind you want), and reduced fat peanut butter.
Line mini muffin tins with paper liners. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave and stir until smooth. Spoon out about a teaspoon of melted chocolate into the tins and make sure the chocolate is around the sides of the tin to make a cup. Put in the freezer for 20 minutes to harden. Then put a teaspoon of peanut butter and a teaspoon of jelly into each cup. Melt the same amount of chocolate chips used previously, and stir until smooth. Spoon some chocolate on top of the jelly to close up the cup. Put in the refrigerator until it is all hardened, and they are ready to eat! Keep them in the refrigerator so the chocolate doesn't get messy and the cups will keep their shape.
Each cup is about 100 calories and with the reduced sugar jelly and reduced fat peanut butter, it is a lot healthier than a classic candy bar that has a ton of added sugar and oils. You can experience with this recipe by adding different ingredients into the middle of the chocolate cups, like substituting the jelly with honey or nuts! Depending on who you are making them for, you can switch around the ingredients on the inside to cater to what they prefer. Regardless of how you prefer your cups, they are easy to make and are a healthier chocolate snack choice you should definitely try.
