Mini Pumpkin Nut Butter Chocolate Cups

This is quite possibly the easiest but most perfect Halloween Treat I’ve ever made!

Everyone loves Reese’s PB cups, right? Well, did you ever realize how easy {not to mention healthier} it is to make your own?

You can use dark chocolate for extra antioxidants + less sugar along with your favorite brand of nut butter to create a quick and child-like indulgent treat!

I added a touch of pumpkin puree to mine to really amp up the fall flavor.

This recipe is so simple you could even involve the kids to help!

Homemade treats are obviously not appropriate to pass out to trick or treaters, but these are to bring to school for your kids’ classmates and teachers! It’s also great as a treat for any parties you may be throwing for Halloween at home.

Of course, it’s one more thing you can feel better about offering to your little hands and loved ones.
