Do you love chocolate and peanut butter?  This is the perfect healthy dessert for you!

One of the biggest hurdles that most people face when they begin to eat a healthier diet is satisfying that “sweet tooth”.  Sure there are lots of “healthy” desserts on the market but most come in a box and made with artificial sweeteners and colors.  They may be low on sugar but loaded with other harmful ingredients.

These peanut butter cups are perfect for satisfying that chocolate craving.
