Chocolate SunButter Cups

Last week I shared that I have had difficulty adjusting to Sunbutter, but that I am really trying to embrace it.

Well, today’s recipe is my first attempt to really try to love it, and I have to admit it was a great place to start. I mean how can you not like something once it is covered in chocolate. 🙂 I could get used to eating Sunbutter this way.

My daughter that has the peanut butter allergy really misses peanut butter cups and I can understand why. They really are so good. I used to make a homemade version of peanut butter cups that we loved. (And if you are gluten free, but can have peanuts, go make yourself some. They are a perfect gluten free treat.)

Because we loved the old recipe so much I decided to try replacing the peanut butter with SunButter. I figured it was an easy recipe to make and I would not be out much if we did not like it. Well, the did not liking it was not a problem. My family loved these.

My daughter with the peanut allergy was thrilled  that I made them and that they turned out so well. After she tried them I really realized how much she misses peanut butter and how my not liking things like SunButter has been so wrong.

My not embracing something has made her life a little tougher and I am going to change that. Even if I don’t like SunButter, I need to start doing more with it. And like I said the other day, it may not be the same, but it is still a very good product.

  1. Thank you Lynn for posting this! I am gluten-free and peanut free. SunButter does take some time to get used to when you were a PB lover like me but it is a terrific product and I’m glad an alternative is available. Please keep it up with the SunButter, G-F recipes!

    My family has been eating Sunbutter for over 6 years and love it. What brand do you use?

    • Sunbutter is what we have used. I know a lot of people don’t understand why we don’t really like it and I guess the best way to describe it is several in my family LOVE peanut butter. I bought about 5 lbs or more a month before our peanut allergy. We really enjoyed it and sunbutter tastes like sunflowers and although it tastes ok and I am thankful for it, it is not peanut butter and we really have had trouble adjusting to it.
