Tonight is Halloween! It is so fun to see all of the cute costumes that come to our door. It just feels like a special time.
What I don’t love about Halloween is being tempted to eat all of the candy. So instead of digging into the candy bucket, I decided to make something a smidge healthier, but equally yummy.
I am warning you- these are addictive. But they are a healthy alternative to processed candy (I’m looking at you Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups).
Dark chocolate is loaded with antioxidants, which have cancer fighting properties, and is proven to boost your mood.
Almond butter packs a lot of protein and fiber, as well as healthy fat that lowers both cholesterol and blood pressure.
I hope you enjoy these almond butter cups tonight, or any night you need something sweet without the icky stuff.
Makes about 12-14 small cups or 5-7 large cups
Keeps well in the fridge for a week, freezer for months, I think. They’ve never made it that long with us!
