Dark Chocolate-Covered Peanut Butter Cups

Dark Chocolate-Covered Peanut Butter Cups

Another super simple recipe that I'm sure you have the ingredients right now. Total time for this from start to finish is 25 minutes, and 20 minutes is refrigeration time. Give these a try!

10-12 mini muffin papers
1cup dark chocolate to be melted
1/2cup peanut butter, or almond butter
Melt 1/2cup chocolate chips in the microwave 30 seconds at a time, stirring in-between each 30 second interval. Line a mini muffin tin with mini muffin papers and place approximately 1tsp melted dark chocolate in the bottom making sure it covers the entire surface of the bottom. Refrigerate at least 10 minutes to harden.

Next, scoop as much peanut butter as you like onto the dark chocolate you've let harden in the fridge.
Then cover with remaining dark chocolate and refrigerate until hardened, another 10-15 minutes or so.
Don't these look so delicious already? Eat them now with a spoon!!!!! or refrigerate for a few minutes :)

Eat and enjoy!


  1. I randomly made these last week (before I came across this post)! Soo good. I also melted in a scoop of coconut oil in with the chocolate before I started. I will DEFINITELY be making these again!

    1. Hi Stacey,

      These are awesome aren't they? I melted chocolate in the microwave then added peanut butter, swirled that around and refrigerated it til it was hard again and had an instant snack for the husband. He loved it. You could give that a try too!
