Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Cups Recipe

If you haven’t had enough sweets yet after Christmas, I have a good recipe for you today. I’ve made them a couple of times in December and they always disappear very quickly.

Feel free to use either dark or milk chocolate. I prefer dark chocolate but some in my family prefer milk so I’ve done both.

This is a no-bake recipe, which means it can be whipped up very quickly. I like that because sometimes I just need something quick for a dessert and don’t have time to bake something. Plus these little morsels are something extra special with a pinch of Maldon Sea Salt on top.

It’s been a busy December for me, so I’m looking forward to slowing down in the new year. I’ll be getting 3 new blogs out right away and then will go back to once a week.

My goal for the new year is to work on a gluten free cookbook featuring the foods and baked goods I grew up with-just gluten free.

Would you be interested in a Wheat Free Mom Cookbook? Email me.

I hope you’ll stay tuned for more information on this new project for 2013.
