They look like peanut butter cups…..but their not. They’re better!
I made like, a healthy nut butter. And then I turned it into a healthy “chocolate chip cookie dough”. And then I covered the “cookie dough” in chocolate to make the cutest, most delicious little chocolate cookie dough cups.
These were meant to be a gift, but I am not sure they will make it one more day around here, let alone find their way out of the house. Which is actually kind of a bummer because I have been meaning to get an edible gift sent out since Christmas. I know, Christmas has been over for a while now. Like a long while.
Ugh. Life. It happens…so fast.
Anyway, after all the Beignets that were inhaled on Friday you would think we might be a little desserted out. Yeah, right. Like that could ever happen. I mean around here we do not take a chocolate break. No, that would be laughable.
So I made a sweat treat on the healthier side. Although I am not sure if consuming like five…in a row, defeats the whole healthy thing!
See my “cookie dough” is actually homemade cashew butter dressed up with a shot of vanilla, just a little itty bitty bit of sugar, and some mini chocolate chips! It’s pretty genius.
These cookie dough cups are super easy and require no baking or use of the stove! Score! But if your feeling lazy you can totally swap in creamy peanut butter, almond butter or cashew butter for the homemade cashew butter! I am pretty sure that peanut butter would be pretty darn amazing too!
Oh and for some reason, people seem to be pretty impressed with these. I think it’s the cuteness factor, I mean they really do look like Reese’s. Which umm, I am pretty sure everybody loves, and then they take a bite and realize it is actually cookie dough inside. Then they really go crazy!
Healthy? Yes. Addicting? For sure!
So maybe I’ll get those gifts out next week?
