Homemade Peanut Butter Cups, Inspired by Reese’s

I am very impressed with myself right now. My husband isn’t a big fan of sweets but the peanut butter cup is the exception.
 
No cooking is required for this recipe so that means we can ALL make a foolproof Reese’s peanut butter cup at home. Oh, happy day.
 
When my husband called me and told me about his horribly stressful day, I made a batch of these homemade peanut butter cups as a treat for when he got home. Because I’m awesome like that. Kidding. Not really, I’m seriously awesome.

Homemade Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups 

I don’t even like peanut butter much (I know, it’ completely unfathomable) and these are tasty. They were also very easy and quick to put together.

Ingredients and Supplies

You don’t need much for these homemade peanut butter cups. One thing you’ll need are cupcake liners and a metal or silicone mold. It can be a mini muffin tin, a regular cupcake tray, or any silicone mold (my daugther is partial to Hello Kitty).

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter, divided in half
  • 2 cups semisweet chips (if using milk or dark chocolate chips)
  • 1 cup milk or dark chocolate chips
  • 4 teaspoons butter, melted or melted nearly all the way – it doesn’t have to be perfect!
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar (confectioner’s sugar)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

These homemade peanut butter cups are ridiculously easy to make and can be made with dark chocolate, milk chocolate, or white chocolate.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter, divided in half
  • 2 cups semisweet chips (if using milk or dark chocolate chips)
  • 1 cup milk or dark chocolate chips
  • 4 teaspoons butter, melted or melted nearly all the way – it doesn’t have to be perfect!
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar (confectioner’s sugar)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions

Make the peanut butter mix by combining a half cup of peanut butter, melted butter, salt, and confectioner’s sugar in a bowl. Make sure it’s creamy.

Next up, melt all the chocolate chips (combine them) along with the peanut butter. You can do it in the microwave (first for 1 minute, then 20-second intervals until melted) or over a double boiler. Stir repeatedly to incorporate.

Once the chocolate mix is melted, it’s time to assemble the homemade peanut butter cups. Coat the bottom of the mold (it will take between a teaspoon and tablespoon of the mix, depending on your mold).

Next, spoon a bit of the peanut butter mixture into the cavity and then layer another set of the chocolate mix on top. Chill in the fridge for an hour – the longest hour of your life, friends.

Pop them out and enjoy!
