Do you know what I miss?  Out of all of the foods we’ve removed from our diet, I miss Reese’s cups.  Does that sound crazy? Meat–nah, dairy–not at all, eggs–sometimes, but Reese’s PB Cups– all the time.  That never-ending PB + chocolate craving is why I’ve made so many allergy-friendly recipes on the blog using that combination.  Some of our faves are:

And then there are these Crunchy Chocolate SunButter Cups!  It’s like a party in your mouth with each bite.

Crunchy SunButter & gluten-free cookies create a delightful, melt-in-your-mouth base, topped with creamy dairy-free chocolate…YUM!  This would be perfect just like this but then a sprinkling of crispy rice cereal add another layer of crunch for that Oh My Goodness, factor!!

To say we’ve been obsessed with this mini treats is an understatement…we like to eat them by the handfuls (don’t judge) and so will you!

Watch how easy it is to make Crunchy Chocolate SunButter Cups

Easy peasy & incredibly versatile Crunchy Chocolate SunButter Cups

Don’t happen to have SunButter Natural Crunch? Use their Natural spread and just add in 1/8th cup of sunflower seeds or some more crispy rice cereal.

We used Enjoy Life Foods’ Sugar Crisp cookies are part of the base, but Graham Crackers also work wonderfully.

Keep this soy-free by using Earth Balance Soy Free Sticks , otherwise, use your vegan butter of choice.

    I love the idea of the crispy, crackly crunchies in this. Sunbutter treats are our go to for putting a stop to that creamy, crunchy, chocolaty craving.

      Audrey, that was a toss up for me too. I let my kids eat most of them, but mostly because I knew they’d run them off more easily!

      Thanks Kortney! Although I love creamy chocolate, it is fun to have a little crunch to change it up.
