Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups


chocolate, peanut butter, delicious desserts


Chocolate and peanut butter have long been happy companions at our house, so when I saw a recipe in All You magazine for homemade chocolate peanut butter cups, I knew I had to try it.


chocolate and peanut butter, yummiest dessert ever, pretty dessert

Ben and Mary Polly were all over this project!  They both jumped in and helped, which was good, because we quadrupled the recipe which made for a lot of scooping.  I have adjusted the recipe below to make 2 dozen, which is half the amount we made.  The original recipe yielded only 12 which just is not enough.

The process was a little messy, so there was definitely some licking involved.

The end result was a big hit.  They are just as good as I imagined they would be.

A rich, creamy little bite of heavenly.

Make them.  You’ll see!

delish!, yummy chocolate dessert, fun project with kids

Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

loosely adapted from All You Magazine


4 full sheets graham crackers

1 cup peanut butter

2 tablespoons butter, at room temperature

1 cup powdered sugar

4 cups (24 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips


Process crackers in a food processor until ground (or you can use a blender).

Add peanut butter, butter and powdered sugar to cracker crumbs.  Mix and then chill mixture.

Melt chocolate (I used a double boiler) until smooth.

Spoon 1 teaspoon chocolate into 24 mini muffin cups.  (I used ones that stand free but you can also use a mini muffin pan filled with liners.)

Spread chocolate over bottoms and halfway up the sides of the paper.

Chill until hardened.  (about 20 minutes)

Scoop 1-2 teaspoons peanut butter mixture into cups.

Spread 1 tablespoon chocolate on top of cups.

Chill until hardened.  (20-30 minutes)

Store in refrigerator until ready to serve.
