Pepita butter cups…..

Nut allergies in your house? looking for a sweet treat with a difference? I took inspiration from She Let Them Eat Cake last week and made these Pepita Butter cups instead of Almond Butter cups! (pepita butter is super simple to make in a food processor)

Especially living in Nth Queensland Australia – these little treats will always need refrigeration(or to be frozen). It is important to be conscious of the density of the produce used – regardless of how whole the ingredients are these little gems should always be see as a treat & eaten in a treat size! 🙂
