tonight (3)It’s the first week of the Cookie and Dessert Share-fest! What’s that you say? Well, it’s the first and hopefully annual, cookie and dessert recipe sharing link-up to start off the holiday season on a sweet note! Each week of October, every host of the Merry Monday Link Party will be sharing a cookie or dessert recipe all month long. Plus, if you share your cookie and dessert recipes on the Merry Monday Link Parties during October, we’ll share those on our weekly Cookie and Dessert Share-fest posts too!

To kick start my first week of the Cookie and Dessert Share-fest, I’d like to share a candy recipe with you – Double Peanut Butter Chocolate Cups. I absolutely LOVE peanut butter cups, but always feel so guilty eating store-bought ones that are full of hydrogenated fats and oils. While you still have to eat these in moderation, it’s definitely an upgrade and you can pronounce all the ingredients πŸ™‚

Double Peanut Butter Chocolate Cups

Do you see that? How can you resist? I would highly suggest making a double or triple batch as one batch will go very quickly. I made these in the evening and I tortured my poor kids till the next morning so I could take these pics…..muawaaahhhahahaha!

  6. Gah! This is so not fair! The picture of this delectable goodness filled my whole screen upon opening your link to this post and I swear I could’ve taken a bite out of my screen. I am having a major chocolate craving and I have half the mind to go whip up a batch being that the ingredients are simple and clean! Great dessert and what a fun idea to do this! Pinning! #ibabloggers

      1. I made them! I didn’t have mini cups, so I made them “regular size”, which was probably good for me since I stopped at eating one or two at a time.

        Thanks for sharing on Tasty Tuesdays.

  7. Okay now these look absolutely divine! Only problem that I see is that I would have to share them with my children…who are both peanut butter and chocolate fans! I have pinned this for me to find and have a great week! #ibablogger

  8. You can make these with hazelnuts, by making hazelnut butter. They taste even better!
    Thank you for sharing.
