Recipe by happybella
I made these for Easter and my family loved them! They taste just like Reese's! :) I am not exactly sure about the measurements because I ad-libbed the recipe as I went along. Also, it might yield more than the amount I got because I did lots of taste-testing!

I've made this a few times already. I use dried prunes instead of the dates - which makes the processing a lot easier and the cups extra-chocolatey! I recommend rolling the peanut butter into little balls rather than trying to spread it. If you're on a budget and not on a raw diet, you can use corn syrup instead of the agave. I make them in a silicone mini-muffin pan and store in the freezer, they are really easy to pop out and ready to eat after a few minutes (and you help reduce waste by not using the foil cup). Thanks for the treat happybella!!!
- 4 pitted dates
- 1⁄3 cup coconut oil, melted in the dehydrator (or oven at low temp)
- 3⁄4 cup cacao or 3⁄4 cup cocoa powder
- 1⁄2 cup Agave
- 3 tablespoons raw peanut butter
- 1 -2 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 tablespoons Agave
Directions See How It's Made
- Combine dates and coconut oil in a small bowl and let soak for 30 minutes.
- Transfer to blender and add cacao powder, 1/2 cup agave and process until very smooth. (This is a bit tricky and will require some patience. I have not yet discovered the trick to completely processing the dates. Sometimes it helps to chop the them in the small pieces. If you have a high powder blender this should not be an issue.).
- In a separate bowl, combine peanut butter, vanilla and 2 tbsp agave and mix well.
- Place 12 foil mini muffin cups on a large plate. Fill each cup about halfway full with the chocolate mixture. Gently spread about 1 teaspoon peanut butter in each cup. If you have more peanut butter left over after you have filled each cup, you can add more or just eat it plain! ;).
- Top the cups with the remaining chocolate, covering the peanut butter completely.
- Chill the cups in the fridge for about 2 hours before serving. They will keep for about 5 days in the fridge.
