Cashew Butter Reese Cups :)

Thursday night I decided to try a recipe that a friend recommended to us for Almond butter Reese Cups. I wanted something to send in for Gabe's Valentine's Day party at school Friday. Reese Cups are Gabe's all time fav. candy. He LOVES peanut butter and was very sad when he couldn't have it anymore due to his sensitivity.

Instead of almond butter, I decided to try salted, cashew butter with the enojy life allergy-free chocolate bars and semi-sweet chocolate chips. I melted the chocolate over the stove for a few minutes in a saucepan and then poured the first layer in muffin cups. Stick them in the freezer for about 10 minutes until hard and then add a tsp of your favorite nut butter and then cover the nut butter with more chocolate. Freeze again until they are hardened and wrap individually with saran wrap! I stored them in the fridge, not sure if they would go bad otherwise. I assume they would. Gabe LOVVVVVVVED them. He was SO thrilled to be getting candy again and had chocolate everywhere after. Little does he know that it's healthy candy!  :) I love moments like that!

Here is a picture of them! They turned out great and were so simple to make. I was so excited!
