Trick or Thesis

I wanted to recreate some of the candies that I am unable to eat due to most candy being made with High Fructose Corn Syrup or some sort of Corn ingredient being in the candy. I did find a recipe that someone has already developed for mounds candy bars. Mounds Bar Recipe I changed the recipe slightly to fit the ingredients we prefer to use in our home. Also going to make Almond Joy which is very simple upgrade to the Mounds Recipe.

I used unsweetened coconut, Coconut Cream and Ghirardelli 60% Dark Chocolate chips.

For the Peanut Butter cups I did use Sun butter and give it a try from a recipe that I developed quite awhile ago. The original recipe Peanut Butter Cups I am having to change the recipe since I can no longer tolerate oats. See the transformed recipe below.

Jamie at A Families Love created some very tasty apple pancake cupcake with a maple butter cream frosting. Also, Better Batter has some fantastic treats that they are sharing with us today!
