Paleo Reese’s—seems impossible but you’ll be hooked by the end of this. Some candy combinations are so iconic that they become permanently embedded in our culture, and the marriage of chocolate and peanut butter that is a Reese’s peanut butter cup is one of them. You can whip up a homemade batch of these treats with almond butter in just a few minutes thanks to our modifed recipe. The coconut oil is the secret to that firm outer layer, so don’t worry about sacrificing texture—this one is absolutely on the mark.
