How to Make Homemade Peanut Butter Cups

Sometimes you just feel like making your own peanut butter cups right? Well, a few Sundays ago I sure did. I pulled out some bloc chocolate I’ve had in my pantry, melted it, spooned it into these perfect little paper cups (2 3/4 inch round) I found at Michaels, poured in some softened peanut butter, more chocolate on top, then let them harden. Boy were they worth the wait. Fabulous my friends.

This is a no brainer treat, but I wanted to share anyway, perfect for a Sunday…..or any day treat 🙂  xoxo

  • Microwave


  • 2 cups chopped chocolate semi-sweet
  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter melted in microwave to soften


  • Place chocolate into a microwave safe bowl and heat in 30 second intervals until melted and smooth. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of chocolate into each 2 3/4 inch round paper liner spreading to the edges.
  • Spoon about 1 tablespoon slightly melted peanut butter over chocolate, carefully spreading to edges. Spoon another 2 tablespoons of melted chocolate over peanut butter, spreading gently to edges.
  • Let harden completely, then remove from paper liner and enjoy 🙂


I found the round paper liners at Michaels in the cake decorating section.

    Sometimes you just need a chocolate peanut butter fix. No good can come from me thinking I can make my own peanut butter cups. No good, I tell ya’! Those look delicious!

    Incredibly easy yet yummy and healthy sweet snack! PB-chocolate is my favorite combo. But I’m wondering, as you bite into the hardened chocolate, don’t you squeeze the soft PB out of the sandwich? :p

    OH YEAH! You got me craving these and I’m afraid I need to make them asap!:)

  5. Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga

    I love making homemad PB cups too. I add a tablespoon of nutritional yeast to the peanut butter b/c it gives them sort of that Reese’s PB taste…slightly salty with just a touch of grit/texture. But not an essential item because obviously your PB cups look amazing as is!

    Hope you’re having a great weekend, Jenny 🙂 I saw an IG pic that you won something red. Enjoy it!!! 🙂
