It's like Reeses' healthier cousin! With Easter around the corner, I wanted to share my new chocolate obsession in the hopes that it will inspire you to take a second look at the candy you give your kids (or yourself) this year. These cashew butter cups taste fantastic and are the perfect creamy, chocolatey treat to satisfy any sweet tooth. The cashew butter can easily be subbed for any other type of nut/seed butter- I've tried it with almond butter and sunflower seed butter, and both turned out fantastic! You can also sub milk chocolate if you are not a fan of dark chocolate- it obviously adds dairy and more sugar, but it's still cleaner than anything you could buy at the store!
