Peanut Butter Cups

1 Comments Peanut Butter Cups 2

Who loves Reece’s peanut butter cups? I do! I really do, so much so I had to make them at home. This is a super easy recipe adapted from the New York Cult Recipes cookbook. Thankyou @shopgirlinprint for the recommendation! The peanut butter cups were ready to eat in a couple of minutes after making.


Peanut Butter Cups


  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 280g dark chocolate, chopped into very small pieces for melting (I love dark chocolate however you can also use a sweeter chocolate)
  • 150g peanut putter


  1. Prepare the paper cases, reinforce by stacking a few together. Then remove the spare ones as soon as the cups have set.
  2. In a saucepan over the stove, melt the chocolate and coconut oil over very low heat, stirring with a spatula and lifting the sauce pan from the heat source every now and then to avoid the chocolate becoming too hot.
  3. The assembly will consist of one layer of chocolate, peanut butter and then chocolate again.
  4. Pour a small portion of the melted chocolate into the cups. Place in the fridge for 2 minutes. Pull from the fridge and proceed to add peanut butter to the cups. Then fill the cups with the remaining chocolate.


I use Macro organic peanut butter.

I love Whittaker’s chocolate but will buy anything on special at the local supermarket.

Keep the peanut butter cups in the fridge and pull out when ready to serve
