Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter & Cherry Jelly Cups

My craving for a PB&J sandwich lately has been so unreal. Like where did this craving come from. I haven’t had one in years.

So naturally I leaned toward adding chocolate. Trader Joe’s makes a PB&J chocolate bar that is oh so satisfying. IF you’ve never had it, you can grab it while you wait in line at check out. It’s usually located perfectly in those candy cubbies right as you’re checking out. Perfect goods to contemplate purchasing while waiting.

These are so fun to make. So easy to assemble. Once you’re done you’ll have made a chocolate candy! A dessert! A snack?! YES, this can be snack food too.

I enjoyed one midday yesterday with a nice hot cup of coffee. Worth it.
