Homemade Peanut Butter Cups

Ingredients Needed:

  • Good quality dark chocolate
  • Creamy peanut butter
  • Pure maple syrup

Ingredient Notes For These Homemade Peanut Butter Cups:

  • Chocolate – Any dark chocolate will do, but I do recommend that you try the Hu Kitchen brand I use for this recipe. It is absolutely delicious! And it contains no dairy, no refined sugar, etc., etc. It is made with just 3 ingredients. And boy is it good!
  • Maple Syrup – Don’t skimp on this ingredient. Be sure to find a really good one. Quality is key!
  • Double Boiler – Make sure the water doesn’t come to a boil – you just want a gentle simmer. Also, watch the chocolate the entire time. You don’t want it to burn on you.
  • Tip – You can make and freeze these peanut butter cups in advance of when you will need them. (This dessert is great for Halloween, during the holidays or just because). 😉

So if you love them like I do, and want to try your hand at them the recipe is below.

Description

These Homemade Peanut Butter Cups are super easy to make from scratch and are insanely delicious! They are made with three, good quality ingredients and taste way better than the store bought version.


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1 9 oz bag Hu Snacking & Baking Dark Chocolate Gems, melted
  • 1/2 cup Adams 100% Natural Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Pure Maple Syrup
  • 8 Cupcake Liners

Instructions

  1. Filling: To a small bowl, add the peanut butter and maple syrup and stir until well combined. Set aside.
  2. Chocolate: Add the chocolate to the top of a double boiler over low heat. (Do not allow the water to come to a boil – you just want a gentle simmer). Stir until smooth and melted. Remove from the heat.
  3. Assemble: Layer 1 tablespoon of melted chocolate to the bottom of each liner, followed by 1 tablespoon of the peanut butter. Gently spread the peanut butter out with the back of the measuring spoon. Top with 1 tablespoon of chocolate.

    1. Happy Fall, my sweet friend! Definitely give these goodies a try, and make sure to let me know what you think. *They are super easy and quick to make, especially for a mom on the go!* 😉

  1. Maybe you could bring a batch of these at Christmas. I normally buy them, especially for Jordan but Libby likes them too. It would be fun to have the homemade version this year!!! Or, we could make them together! Isn’t it fun to look forward to the time together?

    1. I’ll definitely bring the ingredients so we can make a couple of batches together! I can’t wait to see everyone!
