You do! That’s right, you! This simple method to making some DELICIOUS ‘ice-cream’ takes less than 2 minutes to prepare and is made using one simple ingredient – no ice-cream maker required.

Healthy Peanut Butter Cups Posted on 09/02/2014 | No Comments

I remember when I was first introduced to ‘Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups’. I was working in Miami and they had a jar of Reese Mini’s on the table in the agency (chocolate in a modelling agency – go figure?!).
