Chocolate-peanut butter cups don’t fit into your diet. But that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the mouthwatering food pairing when your sweet tooth strikes. Luckily, not all chocolate-peanut butter treats are highly processed or filled with sugar and other questionable ingredients. These vegan, bite-size dessert balls boast the rich flavor you love, yet they’re made with real ingredients and sweetened with maple syrup. They’re also chilled, not baked, and come together in no time!
