Reese’s Peanutbutter cups, the milk chocolate cups filled with creamy peanutbutter, are one of America’s most beloved candy’s. But unlike what the name suggests, it does not only consist of those two ingredients.
Let’s have a look at the ingredients:
MILK CHOCOLATE (SUGAR; COCOA BUTTER; CHOCOLATE; NONFAT MILK; MILK FAT; LACTOSE; SOY LECITHIN; PGPR, EMULSIFIER; PEANUTS; SUGAR; DEXTROSE; SALT; TBHQ (PRESERVATIVE)
I don’t even know what PGPR Emulsifier is, and neither have I ever heard of TBHQ preservative. I decided to create a clean, but still very tastful version of this traditional treat, and the good thing is, it is ridiculouly easy to make!
If I was forced to make a list of my top 5 most favorite foods, I would definitiely put sweet potato and peanutbutter on it. I never thought of combining them, but they truly are a match made in heaven. Sweet potatoes are such an amazing nutritional powerhouse and they offer a host of health benefits which far exceeds the nutrional value found in regular potatoes, for example they contain twice as much fiber. Not only are these orange- skinned root vegetables one of nature’s most unsurpassed sources of betacaroteen, they are also rich in vitamin C and E. These are all important antioxidants, which help to protect healthy cells from damage caused by free radicals and to strengthen your ability to help fight infection and disease.
I seriously don’t believe why I always bought expensive jars of organic peanutbutter, while it is ridiculously easy to make your own, homemade peanutbutter. Once you have tried it, you will never go back to shop- bought again, I promise! Peanutbutter has many health benefits when it is eaten in moderation: it is an excellent source of protein, fiber, mono- unsaturated fatty acids, folate and vitamin E.
