Healthy Peanut Butter Cups

I came across this recipe at a Healthy Cooking class years ago and finally got around to trying it. It's not quite what you would get from a traditional peanut butter cup in terms of indulgence, but the nutritional boost it packs far surpasses any other recipe.

Healthy Peanut Butter Cups

2 c. wheat germ
8 oz. peanut butter (freshly ground is best.)
1/2 c. honey
1 bag carob or grain-sweetened chocolate chips
(okay, I confess, I used Nestle Tollhouse.
I love carob but it is so darn expensive.)

Mix first three ingredients and spread into 9" square pan.
Melt chips and spread over top. Refrigerate.
These are just satisfying enough without being over-indulgent. Now when I am having a craving I can get my fix without feeling (as) bad.
