A self-proclaimed “chocolate and peanut butter kind of girl” (aren’t we all, though?), Abbie Gellman won’t settle for any old peanut butter cup. If she’s going to spring for a seasonal indulgence, she prefers to “find the best version [of a peanut butter cup] with a short list of organic ingredients — which means dark chocolate — that’s preferably handmade.” The New York-based Gellman — a chef, culinary nutrition expert, recipe developer, and owner of Culinary Nutrition Cuisine — typically turns to local candy shops or a Justin’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup snack pack when she’s craving her fave treat.
