Before my son became vegan his favourite chocolate treats were Reeses Peanut Butter Cups a rare treat which he now denies himself.

I accidentally made this recipe – I started out experimenting to make a healthier nutty bar but epically failed with the introduction of dark chocolate & peanut butter!! 😂

My son was so delighted with the results he declared it was just like the Reeses and he asked me to please make another batch immediately.

I was more than happy – we all love them as an occasional indulgent treat and they are so simple to make!!
