{I love to use these yummy candies on top of the moist and satisfying Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake recipe!}

How Jen Saves on Reese’s Center Candies:

– Better Body Organic Coconut Extract Virgin Oil (USDA Organic, Cold-Pressed and Unrefined) 28oz at Sam’s Club only $8.68

LouAna Coconut Oil (refined) 30oz found at Publix for around $5-$6!

– For 1lb (4 sticks) of butter, I never pay more than $2.00. Sam’s Club has good prices, or watch for weekly sales and coupons at your local grocery store.

– Smucker’s All Natural Peanut Butter – Walmart or Target for best prices

– McCormick’s Pure Vanilla Extract (16oz) for $6.88 at Sam’s Club – lasts forever!

– Now Foods Xylitol (2.5lb) $13.49 at Vitacost (If you’re new to Vitacost.com, here’s a $10 off $30 coupon when you sign up here!)

Truvia (400 packets) Natural Sweetener $15.48 at Sam’s Club! AWESOME price!

Now Foods Stevia Extract Powder (4oz) (This lasts forever!!)
$18.55 from Amazon.com

– Mini Paper Muffin Liners: I buy 350 count for around $3 at Walmart.

**NOTE: For the sweeteners, I like to diversify for both the taste as well as the amount used to save on costs. But you can also experiment with other sweeteners too! Trim Healthy Mama sweeteners go on sale quite often so be sure to check them out as well!
