Easy Peanut Butter Cups

My husband loves peanut butter. He especially loves the peanut butter cups you buy. I have tried several versions of homemade peanut butter cups over the years, but I have not found a recipe that we really thought was great.

This year though I found a recipe in an old Martha Stewart Everyday Food magazine. It was a little different in that you use white chocolate in the peanut butter layer. I decided I would give Martha’s version a try and oh was it good.

Seriously, these were so good. I made these for our office party and I think they were the most popular dessert item. There were none left and my kids think I need to make some more.

These really were as close to the real store bought ones that I have made. I will be making these again. They were really good, really easy, and really frugal to make.

    i had your website bookmarked for quite some time and decided to go to it tonight. read your post on peanut butter cups and i have recently discovered by using natural peanut butter that i grind at fred meyer health food section works wonderful to achieve the “real” peanut butter cup flavor. i was so desperate for chocolate one night i tried the pnut butter and choc and could not believe how close it was to the candy bar.

    • @chris parrill, I love natural peanut butter, but my husband doesn’t really like it. So, I have never thought to use it in a recipe like this. But thanks for suggesting it. I may have to give it a try.

  4. Wow, these look amazing!

    :)

  5. I’m so glad that they’re easy, because they look dreamy!

  7. Those look and sound like a dream come true :)

  8. Yum! I don’t have any mini muffin pans. Is there any reason I couldn’t just make these bigger in a regular muffin pan?

  9. Oh wow those look delicious, I just love peanut butter cups. I will have to try these. That is after my sugar fast.

  16. This looks more like 2 layers of chocolate than a peanut butter cup – which actually looks even better! I’m a huge white chocolate fan, so I bet these would taste awesome.

  17. They look yummy….i dont like white chocolate much though….maybe i can try using regular chocolate?

  18. I’m making these right now….I can tell they are going to be awesome, because I tried the filling ;D lol shhh

  19. Made these yesterday… very yummy, peanut butter middles were delicious, but the semisweet chocolate was very rich. Next time I will make them with milk chocolate chocolate chips, mmm… Thanks for posting!
