Reese’s Pieces – Just Healthier

Hello bug eaters! Today we have another great recipe for you! As promised: our healthy version of Reese’s Pieces (that were part of our taster session). Last week was a week full of meetings and mixers with other bug eaters and we are excited that there are so many people willing to change their diet! Many of you have requested a post on why eating insects is more beneficial than being vegan for example. Our next blog post will thus be on sustainable nutrition with cricket/insects. Thanks for the comments! We are always interested in your opinion so please feel free to reach out to us! 🙂

When I made these chocolate nut butter cups for the tasting,  I would personally say they were a best seller. These were especially delicious late at night when you’re not really hungry but just fancy a little snack. They were perfect with that glass of red wine 🙂



I used a mini muffin tray to make these babies. You can also use a larger muffin tray to marker larger bites for those with the chocolate tooth ( say hi to my hand in the reflection 😉 )


Print Recipe
Serves: 24 Cooking Time: 2 hours


  • For the base: 120g coca powder
  • 220 cocoa butter
  • 75ml maple syrup
  • 1tbsp organic vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • some milk
  • 50g soaked cashews (best to soak them in milk)
  • 100g dates (chopped and without stones)
  • 5tbsp cricket flour
  • 60ml milk
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 big tbsp nut butter



Start by blending all ingredients for the nut- butter filling. Start with the cashews and end at the nut butter. Blend until smooth and let set in the fridge for at least 30min.


For the chocolate shells, melt the cacao butter and powder in a bowl over hot water until completely melted


Add the other ingredients and stir well


Line the bottom of the muffin tins with some chocolate and let them cool until the chocolate is semi- hard


With a pipping bag ( or any other method 🙂 ) place a scoop of nut butter filling in the centre of each chocolate layer


Let them harden for a while


Now pour the rest of the chocolate on top of each mini muffin and let harden completely.


Decorate with some tasty cocoa beans and dark chocolate


Enjoy them chilled ( they might melt away otherwise 😉 )


Instead of a pipping bag, I used a small plastic bags that you normally use for sandwiches
