Halloween and trick-or-treating definitely go hand-in-hand. However, the large quantity of artificially flavored and colored candy left at the end of the big day leaves little to be desired. I don’t want Eben to miss out on the fun, so we usually let him have a few pieces and then, we swap out what’s left with a healthier, homemade version of his favorite treat.
Peanut butter cups are at the top of his candy wish list. Can you blame him? Peanuts and chocolate — they just go so perfectly together! However, traditional peanut butter cups are packed full of preservatives, and come individually wrapped, leaving a lot of waste behind. Instead, I prefer to make my own peanut butter cups for my family. I can use the freshest, whole ingredients and can even choose to make them vegan.
