  1. Stir 3/4 cup peanut butter, 2 tablespoons coconut oil, and 1 tablespoon honey together in a bowl. Mix chocolate-hazelnut spread, cocoa powder, 1/4 cup coconut oil, 1 tablespoon honey, 1 tablespoon peanut butter, and stevia powder together in a separate bowl.
  2. Ladle peanut butter mixture into muffin cups; top each with chocolate mixture. Refrigerate or freeze until set.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • They can be quite messy! You can use rubber molds to make them a little more fun! I made Easter egg-shaped candies for my daughter.
  • You can use crunchy or smooth peanut butter. Substitute peanut butter powder (such as PB2®) for the peanut butter in the chocolate layer, if desired.
  • You can make it look like an actual peanut butter cup if you spoon a small amount of chocolate first, then the peanut butter mixture, and top with more chocolate mixture.
  • They're also delicious if you add some mini chocolate chips to the peanut butter mixture.
