Homemade Peanut Butter Cups

It’s officially fall baking season for me, now that the Halloween festivities have come and gone. I love this time of year! It’s filled with fall baking, holiday simmering potpourri pots, Thanksgiving and Christmas planning and lots of family time.

Before I transition into all of that, I wanted to share my Homemade Peanut Butter Cups that I made for Halloween. They are crazy simple and require only 3 ingredients, and they are WAY better than the store bought ones too. I made them a couple of days prior and popped them in the freezer until I was ready for them.

So the night of, I stayed in, made a batch of homemade soup and handed out Halloween candy. All the while, I was munching on these delicious peanut butter cups, which is my childhood favorite.

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

  • 1 10 oz bag Ghirardelli Chocolate Dark Melting Wafers
  • 1/2 cup Adams 100% Natural Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Pure Maple Syrup
  • 8 Paper Muffin Cups

Instructions

  • To a small bowl, add the peanut butter and maple syrup and stir until well combined. Set aside. 
  • Add the chocolate wafers to the top of a double boiler over low heat. Do not allow the water to come to a boil.

  • Layer 1 tablespoon of melted chocolate to the bottom of each muffin cup, followed by 1 tablespoon of the peanut butter. Gently spread the peanut butter out with the back of the measuring spoon. Top with another 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!
