These are amazing! They definitely cake care of my chocolate fix! I mixed up the recipe after a couple of months. Now, instead of nuts in the bottom of the cupcake liners, I just use crunchy peanut butter. Also, it helps to melt the peanut butter for about 30 seconds in the microwave before adding to the chocolate/butter/Splenda mix.
I'm giving it 5 stars because I think it satisfied my craving for Reese's esp. since this is for low carbers. I didn't change anything and it worked out to about 2 tbl per cup. Just gotta stop from eating all of them, Thanks for the recipe!
A nice little treat for low carbers! I actually made these using a substitution for the baking chocolate. According to my favourite cookbook, you can substitute a square of baking chocolate with 3 Tbsp cocoa powder mixed with 1 Tbsp canola oil. So I did that and they turned out lovely. I also made these in a mini muffin pan using those little paper liners and I got 24 mini chocolate cups out of it. Thanks so much for this recipe Mercy, it is going in the favourites book!
I used 1/4 cup butter and 1 tbsp honey with no splenda, my husband loved it as he is on low carb and eats no sugar. I thought it was bitter.
Very good !! I followed the recipe exactly
Thanks for this recipe! Will make and update at a later date.
These were great! Although I am not following a low carb way of eating any more - when I was, these were awesome little snacks :)
EXCELLENT! Was out of peanut butter so I made these with hazelnut butter and ground hazelnuts instead...wonderful, tasted just like Nutella or gianduia candy. I plan to make these again soon with peanut butter and maybe almond butter too. Can't wait, in fact. My boyfriend loved these too and he's not on a low-carb diet. Thanks for posting this
It was nice to find a low carb option to my favourite candy. We don't even have regular Reece's Peanut Butter cups where I live in Australia, except in the specialty stores, and they are usually old and expensive. My Australian husband loves the Reece's cups and he really likes this recipe too. My only draw back was finding the unsweetened baking chocolate which they don't have here. But I was able to find a low carb block of dark chocolate, and it worked fine. Thanks for the great recipe!!!
