Peanut Butter Cups

I've had this recipe forever. It's super easy and appreciated by pretty much everyone. It's sort of a non-recipe in that I would make quantity tweaks depending on your preference for chocolate to peanut butter ratio. The original calls for:


  • 1 cup of peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup of icing sugar
  • 1 bag of dairy-free chocolate chips
  • Muffin wrappers
However, I find that there is way too much peanut butter filling left over, so I typically slightly reduce the filling and bump up the chocolate.


  1. Melt half of the chocolate chips. I use 30 second intervals in the microwave.
  2. Spoon melted chocolate into muffin wrappers. It should do at least 12 cups.
  3. Place in freezer to chill.
  4. Mix up the peanut butter and icing sugar. Drop the filling into the chilled chocolate cups. Place back in freezer.
  5. Find something else to do for twenty-ish minutes.
  6. Melt the remaining chocolate and spoon on top of the firmed up peanut butter/chocolate base. Chill some more and then enjoy.

The one on the left is the pretty version.
The one on the right is the version for members of your own household
(once you've gotten lazy).
