Prep Time 20 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 12


  • Food processor
  • Rubber spatula
  • Teaspoon
  • 2 Mini Muffin Pans Line with Paper Liners
  • Measuring spoons and cups
  • Medium Microwave Safe Bowl


  • 1 Cup Dark Chocolate Baking Chips I like Lilly's Brand
  • 6 Tbsp Butter Room temperature
  • 2 Tbsp Dry Roasted Peanuts
  • ½ Cup Peanut Butter I like organic, no added sugar
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla
  • 3 Tbsp Sweetener of choice I like Stevia


  • Gather all ingredients and "tools for the trade" to save time!
  • In bowl melt chocolate chips and 2 tbsp butter in microwave on high. Microwave in 30 second increments to avoid burning chocolate. Stir until creamy.
  • Drop 1-2 tsp of chocolate mixture in the center of both paper-lined mini muffin pans (24 cups). Swirl on the bottom, avoiding the sides of the paper.
  • Use spatula to scrape all of the chocolate from the bowl. No carb left behind! Freeze to harden.
  • Crush dry roasted peanuts in the food processor.
  • Add vanilla, peanut butter, and remaining butter to food processor. Mix until creamy. Easy tip: spread a little butter on the inside of your measuring cup for easy removal of peanut butter. Or spray with cooking spray.
  • Remove both muffin pans from freezer. Evenly spread peanut butter mixture over 12 (half) of the chocolate cups.
  • Remove paper liner from the remaining 12 chocolate rounds.
  • Place 12 chocolate rounds on top of the 12 chocolate and peanut butter cups. Remove remaining paper liners from chocolate peanut butter cups.
  • Store in refrigerator or freeze for two weeks.
  • Enjoy with your favorite cup of tea or coffee!
