Peanut Butter Cup ‘Shake’

I know, I know. A peanut butter cup shake doesn’t sound healthy. But it actually is. It’s quite healthy. And if you can have your chocolate (and peanut butter ) and eat it, why the heck not, right?!? RIGHT!! 😉 I just know y’all agree with me on that point, because ummmm… CHOCOLATE (and peanut butter)!!! Haha…check this out.

Peanut Butter Cup Shake

This peanut butter cup shake is amazingly similar to a certain brand of peanut butter cups. So similar that if I have a craving for those certain cups, I whip one of these up and BOOM, no more cravings!

I found this recipe online…actually I found  for this online, but I changed it up so much that I’m not even going to link to the original. I made it to fit my needs and my budget. My version doesn’t have any ‘specialty ingredients’ that are hard to find or cost an arm and a leg.

You’re welcome….now on to the recipe for this delicious peanut butter cup shake.
