Easy Homemade Peanut Butter Cups

Easy Homemade Peanut Butter Cups_

It is no secret that I love quick and easy recipes. This recipe is about as quick and easy as you can get for a dessert. It does take a few hours to set up, but the actual making of it could not be easier.

The best part of this recipe may be that it only contains three ingredients!

I have been making this recipe for years. I used to layer it so that it looked like a regular peanut butter cup would, but then I realized that I could easily just mix it all together to make it. It still has the same great taste but is much easier to make.

Layering it is not hard, it just takes time. Mixing it all together saves time and I love saving time in the kitchen!

This is now one of my kids favorite desserts to make themselves. They love to put it together for an easy dessert.

And as many of you know my daughter has a peanut butter allergy, so we actually now eat these with Sunbutter and they still taste great. So if you have a peanut allergy just use your favorite alternative butter.

  1. These look so good!!! We are going for a bike ride (burning off calories beforehand! lol) and then we’re going to make these. I got all the ingredients but it took a little doing to find white chocolate and not just vanilla chips. I am wondering if the vanilla chips or even white almond bark would work in this recipe. Have you ever tried those? I am sure they are going to taste incredible but looking at more frugal, easy to find options for the white chocolate.

    • Sorry it took so long for me to reply to you! I have used both the white chocolate and the vanilla chips. They both work. I usually use what I have on hand. I have not tried almond bark, but I am guessing it would work too. I think any of them would work well. It might change the flavor slightly, but I think it would work. I hope you enjoy them!

      • No worries. These were so amazing!! I have tried the versions that have the outer coating and peanut butter just in the middle and they are such a pain to make! These were so easy and tasted even better. I guess I should be bummed because this is not going to help my diet, lol!
        Thanks for another great recipe and for getting back to me!
