Have I told you about the chocolate wreath peanut butter cup phase I went through in middle school?

When going to the movies with friends on the weekends, we would always stop at the grocery store beforehand and stock up on sweets.

I was totally obsessed with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and always bought 3 or 4 packages for myself.

To be honest, I could eat a lot of sugar back then.

Strudel in the toaster for breakfast, egg waffles soaked in syrup, chocolate bars in your lunch box, and a big Baskin-Robbins milkshake after school.

My mother raised us to a very healthy and balanced diet, including a variety of vegetables at every meal. Broccoli and Brussels sprouts have been one of my favorite foods since I was a kid.

But I’ve always been a person who eats dessert every day.

If you put chocolate and peanut butter on my shoes, I think I’ll eat them.

Thankfully, these homemade peanut butter pops are much tastier than shoes.

And at the same time, it’s much healthier than eating four packs of Reese’s peanut butter cups at once.

Homemade popsicle tips and tricks

If you don’t have popsicle molds, use paper cups instead.

Wooden popsicle sticks can be found at most craft stores such as Michaels and Joann Fabrics. Alternatively, instead of popsicle sticks, you can insert a small spoon into each pop.

To keep your popsicle sticks upright, we recommend freezing them for about 30 minutes until set but not hard. Then add the popsicle sticks and put the peanut butter pops back in the freezer.

To release the homemade pops from the molds, place them in low boiling water for about 15 seconds and give them a light twist.
