5-minute healthy peanut butter cups (low sugar, 100% natural)

My good friend Kelley Herring is an absolute GENIUS when it comes to making sweet treats that are actually healthy and fit into a natural fat burning plan that's low-carb, gluten-free, and just plain good for you.

All of her ideas and delicious dessert and candy creations are generally low-carb, low-sugar, and use all natural ingredients with no artificial sweeteners, and use REAL healthy fats to keep that creamy delicious taste that so many "low-fat" candies and desserts out there miss the mark.

Here's an example you can even try today that Kelley is letting me share with you from her awesome new manual called Carefree Candies - Your Guide to Healthy Homemade Indulgences...
