Better with nut butter: the perfect little snack
The story of our salty pistachio nut butter cups starts in the early 20th century with a man named Harry Burnett Reese. He was desperately looking for work to feed his sixteen children and eventually came across an advertisement for a job in the dairy industry. His employer: none other than Milton S. Hershey, an American entrepreneur best known today as the founder of the Hershey Chocolate Company. When Reese moved to Hershey's chocolate factory, he came on to the idea of making his own chocolate and soon founded his own company. He began filling chocolate with peanut butter. He called his creation the peanut butter cup and they are still a real success today. We at KoRo thin this success is well deserved, because the combination of crunchy, dark chocolate and creamy ground peanuts is incomparably delicious. We couldn't resist either, so we created our own vegan version of the classic: our salted peanut butter cups.
Not just peanuts: many types of nut butter cups
With all the nut butters in our selection, we could have never stopped at simple peanut butter cups. So we grabbed a few of our favourite nut butters and started filling little chocolate shells with them: our salty hazelnut butter cups, for exampl, delight with their fine nougat note. Our premium pistachio butter cups bring a salty touch to your afternoon snack and the cashew and strawberry cups are a fruity and nutty delight. We admit that the last one is a bit out there, but if it has one thing in common with the simple nut butter cups, its that it is simply delicious!
Making your own nut butter cups
You want to try making your own nut butter cups? Curious to see if you can make a nut butter cup filled with our banana bread with cashew? No problem, you can try making some at home. Grab a mould and the right type of chocolate. Our organic white drops with coconut blossom sugar, ruby drops or the regular choco drops with xylitol bring an array of colours for you to use. And there you go: melt the chocolate and pour it into the moulds. Put that in the refrigerator while you prepare the filling. If you prefer cookie dough over chocolate, you can of course make a cookie outside instead of a chocolate shell. All you need is: flour, a sugar alternative, spices and baking ingredients of your choice, all of which you can find at KoRo.

Where do nut butter cups come from?
Nut Butter Cups were invented by H. B. Reese in the United States at the beginning of the 20th century. He worked in chocolate production at the Hershey Chocolate Company and, inspired by Hershey's work, soon developed his own chocolate. When he started filling them with peanut butter, he found that the peanut butter cups or penny cups as he also called them, sold very well. We have created our own vegan version of this peanutty classic: You have to try our salted peanut butter cups.
