Peanut Butter Cups

I loooooove peanut butter cups! I love anything with nuts and chocolate, really. These can be a fat bomb snack and totally sugar free. Or, you can use a sweeter chocolate and add some honey or maple syrup and make them more comparable to a Reese’s! You decide 😉  

Peanut Butter Cups

  • Servings: about 14-16
  • Print


4 oz chocolate bar (I like 100% cacao, but use whatever you like if you want it sweeter)

1 T coconut oil

1/2 cup all natural peanut butter (peanuts only ingredient)

1 ts vanilla extract

1 T coconut oil

dash of salt

optional:  honey or maple syrup to taste

mini parchment liners and mini cupcake tin


Melt chocolate with coconut oil either very slowly and carefully in the microwave (stirring often), or in a double boiler.

Line cupcake tin with liners and spoon enough chocolate on the bottom to cover. Use the back of a spoon or mini spatula to spread the chocolate up the sides a bit.  Place in freezer a few minutes to set.

While that’s setting, blend peanut butter and the rest of ingredients in a blender or food processor until really smooth. Taste and see if you want to add sweetener.

Scoop about 2 tsp peanut butter mixture into each chocolate lined liner. Place in freezer a few minutes until set.

Spoon chocolate on top of peanut butter so that it covers. Place in freezer to set.

Store in fridge or freezer in a covered container. Enjoy when you need a treat or snack!
