They are just sooo good.

But as I started to eat healthier and understand food better, I thought the best way to go, is to just make it yourself. Especially when it takes roughly 15 minutes to whip these homemade peanut butter cups at home.

There is something very comforting in eating crispy peanut butter cups. Is it the chocolate and peanut butter combo that does it? I don’t know, But I gotta say, these cups are addictive, so be careful!

Ingredients
  

  • 1 /1/4 cups/250g of 85% dark chocolate, dairy-free.
  • 1 cup/250g of crunchy or smooth peanut butter depending on how you like it.
  • 2 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoon coconut flour

Instructions
 

  • Line a mini muffin pan with 5 cupcake liners.
  • Now it’s time to melt the chocolate: Place the dark chocolate into a microwave-safe bowl and microwave in 30-second increments until chocolate is melted. You can also melt the chocolate in a medium saucepan over low heat; stirring frequently.
  • Once the chocolate is melted, add 1-2 tablespoons to the bottom of each cup (about 1 heaping tablespoon ). Use the spoon to push/spread the chocolate all the way up sides of each liner, you should use exactly the amount of chocolate that you melted.
  • Once you’ve filled all the cups, place the pan in the freezer for just a few minutes to harden the chocolate. Make the peanut butter cup filling.
  • Add peanut butter, maple syrup and coconut flour to a medium bowl and mix until smooth, place 1-2 tablespoons of the mixture in each cup on top of the chocolate. It should fill pretty much to the top.
  • Spoon about 1 tablespoon of the remaining melted chocolate on top of the peanut butter, making sure you cover all of the peanut butter fillings.
  • Freeze for 5-10 minutes until chocolate is solid. Once cups are firm, you can store them in the fridge or freezer until ready to eat.

Notes

Feel free to double the recipe if you want more cups. You can make these into large cups by using a regular muffin tin and liners. I would suggest doubling the recipe if you make large cups.
