Homemade Peanut Butter Cups, 2 Ingredients

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


Homemade Peanut Butter Cups, 2 Ingredients

2 cups chopped chocolate, semi-sweet

1 cup smooth peanut butter, melted in microwave to soften

1. 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.

2. Remove from paper liner and enjoy 🙂  Note:  I found the round paper liners at Michaels in the cake decorating section.

Makes 8 to 10 peanut butter cups


Enjoy! Come back soon 🙂

  1. 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

  2. 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!!! 🙂
