FOOD: Salted Peanut Butter Cups

Oh Made By Girl readers do I have a treat for you! I'm Jen from Pretty Eats and am SO excited to bring you this homemade version of a favorite, Salted Peanut Butter Cups. Creamy, with such deep flavors brought out by a small sprinkle of salt. These cups are so decadent yet simple to make, their store-bought version will pale in comparison.

The key in simple recipes is always high quality ingredients, mainly the bittersweet chocolate used in these treats. Since making these peanut butter cups at home, I seemed to have gained a few admirers (everyone in my house)! Go on, try these for yourself and earn a parade in your honor!

Salted Peanut Butter Cups
Ingredients: makes12
  • 1 c bittersweet chocolate chips (Ghiradeli used here)
  • 3/4 c natural peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • sea salt

  • In a microwave-safe container, combine chocolate and coconut oil. Microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring in-between, until chocolate is just melted.
  • Place mini muffin cups on a cutting board or flat plate.
  • Spoon 2 teaspoons of melted chocolate into each cup.
  • Pop into freezer for a few minutes, until chocolate is firm.
  • Remove cups from freezer. Spoon 1 tablespoon of peanut butter into the center of each cup, taking care not to touch the sides of the paper.
  • Spoon 2 teaspoons of melted chocolate around and on top of peanut butter.
  • Sprinkle sea salt on top of each cup.
  • Place cups back into freezer for a few minutes, until firm, and try not to eat all 12 at once!
Enjoy your weekend!
