Maple Sugar Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs

I have a thing for Reese's peanut butter cups... I mean, I used to. Cards on the table, for years, 70% of my diet was Reese's peanut butter cups. They were the first and often the last thing I would eat each day. It was the sweetest relationship, but unfortunately, I had to end it.

A few years ago, when I made the decision to stop eating refined sugars, I felt like I was breaking up with Reese's. But breaking up can be hard and I wasn’t ready to say goodbye forever. I started experimenting and eventually came to this combination of ingredients, which I think tastes the most like Reese’s.

Maple Sugar Peanut Butter and Chocolate Eggs

  • 4-5 bars of chocolate (I used a nut based, coconut sugar sweetened one)
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup of powdered maple sugar* (or any sugar you prefer)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

·Break 2-3 chocolate bars into pieces and place in a microwave safe dish. Microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring after each interval, until fully melted.
·Transfer melted chocolate to a piping bag.
·Pipe chocolate into each mold. Using a brush, evenly coat the sides of the mold. Make sure the chocolate around the top of each mold is thick enough so that when you pop it out, the chocolate doesn't crack.
·Place in your freezer until hard.

·In a medium sized bowl, mix peanut butter, powdered maple sugar, salt, and vanilla until well combined.
·Using two spoons, evenly divide the peanut butter mixture into your molds (leave enough room for your final chocolate layer).
·Place in the freezer.

·Melt the remaining two chocolate bars and transfer melted chocolate to a piping bag.
·Pipe chocolate into each mold, sealing the peanut butter mixture in.
·Place in your freezer until hard.

*I made my own powdered maple sugar by placing 1/2 cup of maple sugar and 1 tbsp of arrowroot starch into a blender and blending until mixture is a fine powder. If your sugar isn't as powdered as you want it to be, sift the mixture using a fine mesh sieve and place any remaining crystals back into your blender. Repeat until you are happy with the texture.

Note : for extra creaminess, you can add in a tablespoon of vegan butter or coconut oil to your peanut butter mixture.

Grain Free Graham Crackers

graham cracker Graham Crackers (grain free, vegan, and naturally sweetened)

1 1/2 cups almond flour
1 tablespoon arrowroot starch
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons maple syrup (or honey for a non vegan option)
1 tablespoon apple cider

·Preheat oven to 350°
·Put almond flour, arrowroot starch, sea salt, cinnamon, maple syrup, and apple cider into the bowl of a food processor and mix until well combined, scrapping down the sides with a spoon as needed.
·Turn out dough onto a piece of parchment paper and shape into a flat disk.
·Cover the disk with another sheet of parchment paper (so the dough is in between two sheets) and roll out into a 1/8 inch thick rectangle.
·Cut the rectangle into squares using a knife, pastry/pizza wheel. With a fork, poke holes into each of the squares.
·Transfer to parchment lined baking sheets and bake for about 7-9 minutes (or until golden brown). Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring the crackers to wire racks to cool completely.

apartment pictures If you follow either Slow Magic or me on snapchat (slowwwmagic / dreamangelmusic) then you probably know that we recently took a short trip to Las Vegas and Palm Springs (more on that later). Now that we are back at home I wanted to share a few photos from our apartment that I took before we left.

“Vermont “Dream
Going on tour is a strange emotional experience. You live, travel and work with people that you have either only just met or people that you only see while you are on tour and then after a month or so, you suddenly have to say bye before returning home where everything feels too quiet and permanent. Usually the days right after a tour feel a little empty and I find myself wandering around exhausted, trying to figure out what I am supposed to be doing with my time while simultaneously trying to trick myself into thinking that I have never left.

The end of the So Cute! tour wasn’t like this at all. Almost immediately after the last show of the tour in San Diego, I flew home to spend Christmas with my family in Vermont. On New Years Eve day, I left for Mammoth to celebrate the New Year with Slow Magic. Shortly after, we flew back to the east coast and eventually ended up back at my parent's home in Vermont for a few days. Now that I am back at our apartment, I thought it would be nice to share a few photos from the holidays.

Hotel Here are a few photos from our days off at the Mall of America. Like our other trips to the Mall of America, we didn't actually plan on going or even realize that we would be near the mall until the day of but there was a snowstorm in Minnesota so staying at the mall made the most sense. When our TM told us that we would be there over night, we were so excited that we decided to get a hotel room at the Raddison, which is connected so we would’t even have to go outside into the cold.
