Please note, the giveaway portion is now over. Congratulations to entry #41!
Do you love peanut butter cups? As a child, my favorite candy was peanut butter cups. It is what I coveted most from the stash of Halloween treats I collected every year and I could eat several in one sitting.
Recently I was provided with a sample of Unreal’s peanut butter cups. Unreal is a candy company which is trying to “unjunk candy” by getting rid of the artificial ingredients, preservatives, etc. These peanut butter cups, called Unreal 77, have less sugar and no GMOs, no preservatives, no hydrogenated oils, no corn syrup, and no artificial ingredients.
I loved them. They taste just like peanut butter cups should. And I felt even better eating them knowing that they are healthier. Unreal is generously offering to give one of my readers a large stash of peanut butter cups. More information on the giveaway is at the end of this post.
After eating four in a row (eek!), I thought I’d use some up for baking. I made these easy three ingredient cookies using the candy that taste great. Crispy on the outside and slightly chewy on the inside.
They area a breeze to make like all my other easy cookie recipes lately. Though you will need a food processor to mash up the peanut butter cups.
The other thing I like about these is that they have a really cool logo. It looks like a maze, but it actually spells out “unreal” and the logo is embedded on the bottom of each of the cups.
Giveaway rules: Unreal has offered one of my readers a chance to win a bundle of Unreal 77 peanut butter cups. The winner will receive two boxes and two bags of peanut butter cups. This should be plenty to last someone a while, share with some friends and maybe make these cookies. Please note, this contest is only open to U.S. Residents. The winner will be chosen using random.org. Contest runs until 11:59 pm EST on March 11, 2013.

3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cup Cookies
12 peanut butter cups
1/2 of large egg
1/4 tsp baking soda
1. Preheat oven to 350F. Mash peanut butter cups with a food processor until a smooth paste is formed. Add in 1/2 of an egg and baking soda and mix until batter is smooth. Take 2 tbsp dough and roll between palms until smooth balled is formed. Place onto baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Repeat with remaining dough, spacing 2 inches apart.
2. Bake for 10 minutes. Cookies will initially be puffy, but will sink down when cooled. Let the cookies cool on the cookie sheet until flattened before removing.
