  • 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(R)) 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.

I swapped the peanut butter for the hazelnut spread then used chocolate peanut butter in place of the hazelnut spread (it's what I had on hand). I also ground raw organic cocoa nibs in place of the cocoa and ommited the stevia. Since I didn't have muffin pans at my cottage I tripled the batch and chilled the bottom layer in a 13x9 casserole dish before adding the top layer re-chilling and cutting into pb "fudge". My kids and I had a blast licking all the bowls and spoons! Update: after layering and chilling this recipe I realized that if you mix all ingredients and chill- this turns into the EASIEST yummiest totally VEGAN peanut butter cup fudge. Read More

I make this all the time with a few changes so it takes less than 5 minutes to make and becomes more peanut butter freezer fudge than peanut butter cups: I combine everything together using slightly less than 1/4 c coconut oil (leave out the extra tbsps oil.. Stevia isn't necessary nor is the extra tbsp pb.) Mix everything together and freeze. Thanks very much for this recipe. I make this constantly! It's my favorite dessert and I often eat a piece for breakfast. Read More
