Peanut Butter Cups
These are delicious!!! And so, so easy. YUM!! Really...they are perfectly delicious. I could eat them all!
Again, yummy and so easy. I adapted this one a little. I didn't have a candy mold so I just used mini-muffin tins. I also didn't have chocolate chips so instead just chopped up 1 1/2 100% cocoa chocolate bars. I think for this one the chocolate was more bitter and could have used some honey. Also, I'd suggest more caramel and less chocolate with each piece. I ran out of chocolate and had lots of caramel left over. I LOVE the caramel. You could just use the caramel sauce and not even add the chocolate for a delicious sweet treat.
Both of these are great substitutes for the sugar-filled versions. They may seem a bit expensive (they are!) but I ended up spending less than I would have on regular candy (assuming I'd actually take a bag of candy per child to the trunk-or-treat). Plus, the cost makes you not want to make them as often and eat them so much....they are that yummy!
