Paleo Reese’s Eggs

Tomorrow is Easter and I want you to eat these because they are my new all-time favorite treat. Growing up my second favorite combo of flavors for dessert was peanut butter and chocolate. I always liked Reese’s everything: Reese’s Puffs cereal, Reese’s PB cups, Reese’s Pieces, etc, however the best of all were always the Reese’s Eggs because they had the best ratio of PB to chocolate in my opinion.  When Easter comes around I always get the eggs and this year was no egg-ception 😉 see what I did there?

However I realized that they are filled with crap and knew I could make a better, paleo version! I made them, devoured some of them, and then found out that Taylor over at Taylor Made It Paleo made them too!! Great minds think alike 🙂  If you haven’t heard of Taylor yet you are missing out because she is a 21 year old paleo genius and makes amazing treats, so check her out and her version of Paleo Reese’s Eggs too!

These are so ridiculously easy to make, don’t take very long, and taste 1000x better than the ones you can buy at the store. So make them, bring them to your family/friend gathering tomorrow and impress everyone! I also have to give a HUGE shoutout to Sweet Spreads for their incredibly delicious CocoNutter that they sent me to try! You all know how much I love coconut butter, but this stuff is just outrageous. I am going to do a full review on them later this week, so make sure to come back for that 🙂 Happy Easter weekend all you lovely people!

    Finally! A Paleo chocolate recipe that doesn’t use paleo chocolate chips! I do love chocolate chips such as Enjoy Life but they contain sugar. I’m trying to remove all sugar from my diet. Thank you for this recipe!
