Among the harmless ingredients are: Milk chocolate, (milk, chocolate, sugar, cocoa butter, chocolate, no fat milk, milk fat, lactose, soy lecithin, PGPR), peanuts, sugar dextrose, salt, TBGQ and citric acid.
These are the ingredients considered as dangerous:
Studies have shown that 93% of soy happens to be genetically altered. It has been established that soy lecithin has negative effects on fertility and reproduction. It can be the reason for abnormal behavior and brain function. It has also been tied to breast cancer.
PGPR stands for polyglycerol polyricinoleate and it has been considered the reason for causing gastrointestinal issues and allergic reactions in children.
TBHQ is short for tertiary butylhdroquinone. Derived from petroleum, it has been found to be unthinkably toxic. Consuming TBHQ has been linked with nausea, throwing up, ear buzzing, delirium and fainting. Studies have shown that TBHQ can cause damage to the lungs and umbilical cells in people. It can also develop stomach cancer. Children who have consumed this chemical may start to feel anxious, restless and show ADHD symptoms.
Make Your Own Organic Peanut Butter Cups
Are you looking for the best organic peanut butter cups recipe? Well, here it is! Make some on your own! Here’s how:
12 muffin tin liners
12 ounces of organic dark chocolate
1 cup of organic peanut butter
1/4 cup of raw honey
1/4 teaspoon of organic salt
Cut the muffin cups to make them more shallow.
Melt the chocolate on low heat while constantly stirring. Leave it on for a couple of minutes and make sure you do not overcook it.
With a teaspoon, place the chocolate into the muffin cups.
Take everything and put it into the fridge to become more solid.
In a medium bowl, mix the organic peanut butter, raw honey and salt.
Once the chocolate in the fridge has hardened, heat the peanut butter in a small saucepan over low heat to soften it.
Put a small portion of peanut butter into each of the chocolate-coated cups leaving some room at the top for another layer of chocolate.
Store the cups in the fridge for 10 minutes, then spread and flatten the peanut butter.
Put the cups back in the fridge for 1 hour or until the peanut butter hardens.
Rewarm the rest of the chocolate, when the peanut butter is ready and add a layer over every candy.
Let it cool off again in your fridge until the chocolate hardens.
