- Peanut butter and chocolate were meant to be together -- cozied up in a warm, gooey cup of deliciousness.
These Peanut Butter Cups are made from a devil’s food cake mix with a creamy peanut butter ball surprise in the middle. These come together dangerously fast. From first craving to completion, we’re talking thirty minutes tops.
I decided to make them in small ramekins to establish some kind of portion control. Because believe me, you’re going to need some help in restraining yourself from eating it all.
Start by preparing your cake mix as normal and pouring a little bit into the bottom of your ramekins.
The real indulgence comes from these peanut butter balls. I made mine about the size of a golf ball and snuggled them in the cake batter.
Top the peanut butter balls with a couple more tablespoons of batter so that the ball is hidden.
Right when they come out of the oven top each cake with a tablespoon or so of chocolate chips and let them melt from the heat of the cake. Look at that chocolate melting on top.
You can spread it with a knife after it has melted to make a smooth layer or just leave it how it is.
The best part…the warm and creamy peanut butter inside. Dig in…you know you want to!

Homemade Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
If you ever wondered what my idea of heaven on Earth is, you’re staring smack-dab into a stack of it. These are… insane. Addictive and easy to make and positively insane. You could say, in the membrane.
Making a batch of these foolproof, four-ingredient peanut butter cups is pretty much like winning the candy lottery. That is, imagine yourself in that scruffy homemade Halloween costume (so cute!), toting around your little pail, and it’s your lucky night, kid. Because everyone is passing out Reese’s cups. All for you. You don’t have to share them with anyone. They’re all youuuuuurs!
Okay, maybe my desire to make these ran a little deeper than I realized.
Reese’s cups are a rare treat around here (can you tell?)… mostly reserved for Halloweens spent sneaking one or two between passing out candy to costumed kids. Just one of many reasons I’m looking forward to having our very own trick-or-treater next year! More peanut butter cups for Mom and Dad. Hehe.
These homemade chocolate peanut butter cups are terrific fun to make, indulgent and delicious with a glass of milk. Just start with a layer of melted chocolate in a muffin tin, freeze, then plop layers of peanut butter and more chocolate on top. Freeze again, peel the paper off, and enjoy. No bake, no fuss, and no time at all ‘til they’re in your belly.
1 cup Gefen Reduced-Fat Peanut Butter (use reduced fat only)
1/2 cup confectioners&rsquo sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
2 tablespoons crushed graham cracker crumbs
Milk chocolate chips. Or dark or white. Any kind of chocolate will do, but of course, you&rsquoll want to stick to one of high quality.
Peanut butter. Any brand will do but stick to the creamy or chunky kind. Natural peanut butter is too runny for this recipe.
Salt. To enhance the flavor of peanut butter, and to balance out the sweetness from the powdered sugar.
Powdered sugar. Apart from the sweetness, it will also help thicken your peanut butter.
