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.

Ingredients:

12 peanut butter cups

    I don’t think these peanut butter cups would last long enough to preheat the oven. The whole family loves peanut butter cups and we would eat them as is.

    Oh man. I have seen these PB cups at CVS and have always wanted to try them, but I dont usually buy candy. The idea of a candy without partially hydrogenated oils or HFCS appeals to me, because these ingredients have been linked to high cholesterol and diabetes. If I got these PB cups, I would stow them in my work drawer and eat one every afternoon when I need a pick-me-up. My office always has some sweet snack like cookies, brownies or cakes on the communal table. These PB cups would be a great change/addition to our usual work treats. My lab/office loves to eat and I am sure everyone would appreciate these!

  9. Jessica — March 4, 2013 at 2:24 am

    Most wouldn’t last to be included in a baking project – but I’ve been looking for a candy mix-in for some oatmeal muffins that are on my to-bake list!

    I would share with my friends. The cookies look delish as well.

  20. Suzann Knudsen — March 4, 2013 at 7:09 am

    My boyfriend’s favorite snack are peanut butter cups, but he’s been working to be healthier, so those snacks have sadly been pushed aside. I think if he knew that there were a healthier option out there, he might be OK with a celebratory nibble here and there!

  21. Meme @ Living Well Kitchen — March 4, 2013 at 7:22 am

    Peanut butter cups are by far my favorite candy, so I’d probably just keep them in the freezer and eat them every night after dinner :)
    But your cookie recipe is pretty tempting too!

    Well, if I could get any from my husband — a peanut butter cup fanatic — I would probably make some cookies, or top some peanut butter and chocolate cereal bars with chopped cups.

    first, after making these cookies (I’ve already tried the recipe by the way, BIG fan), I would give a some to my best friends who is a bigger Candy addict than me. Then I would make the cookies again and the rest I would just devour.

  37. Caroline — March 4, 2013 at 12:22 pm

    I saw the Unreal candies at Target the other day – how interesting! I’d love to try them – I’d probably try these PB Cup cookies, but also eat them plain with some friends? Actually, I’d share them with my own kids and their friends because they are a healthier treat!

  38. Julia S. — March 4, 2013 at 1:03 pm

    I would eat those pb cups as is and if there are any leftover, try to incorporate them into a cookie recipe.

    Some I will bake into peanut butter and banana fudge brownies (an easy boxed brownie mix hack I’m particularly proud of), some I will send to my sister-in-law in England whom we introduced to peanut butter cups when she visited here a few years ago, and the rest I’ll save for a rainy day. No doubt my husband will eat them up before the rain falls…
