I hope no one mines me chatting in here. I dont really have a designated place to chat. But since this part of the forum is so active, I thought I would start chatting here.

Anywho, I was wondering if anyone knew some recipes for some peanut butter cups. I've been craving some reeses for the longest. But there has to be a more healthier way of making those.

Funny you should ask. My dd is allergic to dairy and wheat so I try and find special treats to make her. In doing so, I stumbled upon this lower cal version of the PB cup (lower cal because of its size). I took a plain rice cake and spread 1 t. peanut butter on it. I then put 1 piece of chocolate on top (I used the dairy free stuff from the health food store, but you could use a dove single instead). Then I put in under the broiler until the chocolate was melted. Then I let it cool until the chocolate was solid again. I was stunned at how good this thing was. You'll definitely need to work it into your calories -- but YUM!

Of course, another thought is just to have a small peanut butter cup and include it as a part of your day. A small one won't break your weight bank.

I saw this posted once and kept it. I have not made it yet, but it sure sounds pretty darn good.

Homemade Peanut Butter Cups: makes 12, 2 pts each
Ingredients:

--Med muffin pan
--Aluminum muffin cups
Preparation:

Mmm.. PB cups are one of my favorite.

I actually just wanted to post to say welcome to Countrygirl and to let her know we're happy to have her hear!
