The 'So Much Love' blog put together a recipe for a chocolate treat that serves as a perfect alternative to Halloween candy. While there is no shortage of candy around Halloween, these kinds of sweets lack any real nutritional value. This tutorial demonstrates how to make a healthy alternative to conventional candy bars.

The recipe serves as a festive interpretation of the traditional peanut butter cup. But instead of using a creamy nut butter filling, the recipe calls for vitamin-rich pumpkin seeds. The pumpkin seeds are blended into a smooth butter that is pipped inside the dark chocolate treats. The pumpkin seed butter cups are then finished with a sprinkling of course sea salt. The end result is a sweet and salty treat that serves as the perfect alternative to Halloween candy.

This recipe demonstrates how homemade candy can be a tasty and healthy alternative to store-bought sweets.
