I am participating in SunSpire Chocolate's September Baking Club. What is the September Baking Club all about? Bakers and bloggers bake their monthly recipe and share it with one another. Not only do we get to see what people are baking across the nation, we get to meet some fellow sweet peeps! Who is SunSpire Chocolate? SunSpire Chocolate is a humble chocolate company that offers organic and fair-trade chocolate products, such as a variety of chocolate chips, bars, and specialty chips.
Their September Baking Club recipe is creating homemade peanut butter cups using their chocolate. The best part of September's Peanut butter cups? It only take 4 simple ingredients found in your pantry. The better part? The recipe can easily be varied and simple additions can be added to your cups!
