This healthier alternative to the popular peanut butter cup chocolates offers consumers a delicious raspberry caramel dessert made from dark chocolate that is just as flavorful and is made with wholesome ingredients. The dessert looks almost identical to a peanut butter cup, except the filling is a rich pink raspberry caramel sauce.

The recipe begins by making the raspberry caramel filling from scratch using coconut milk, maple sugar, vanilla, salt, honey and frozen raspberries. The chocolate cups are simply melted dark chocolate set in lined muffin tins. Cooks should begin by creating the base layer and once hard, topping it off with a layer of filling and another coat of chocolate. The chocolate cups then set in the freezer for a few minutes before becoming hard and edible.

This is a healthy paleo-alternative to traditional store-bought sweets that is made with fresh ingredients to help the consumer control the sugar content.
