Cheesecake Stuffed Chocolate Cups

Cheesecake Cups - Ingredients: 3 oz melted chocolate chips, 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract, 1/4 cup... Full recipe: @choccoveredkt


The way to Katie’s heart:

Make me any recipe that contains both chocolate and cheesecake—two of my favorite things in the world—and I am all yours ♥

Cream Cheese Stuffed Reeses Peanut Butter Cups

Katies are simple creatures.

And it doesn’t get much more simple than these seemingly-fancy cheesecake stuffed chocolate cups.

They require just 3 basic ingredients you can easily find in many regular grocery stores… and hopefully anyone reading this will already have one of those ingredients on hand.

Hint: it’s not the cream cheese 😉


Cream Cheese Chocolate Candy

Unlike my recipe for Homemade Cake Batter Reeses, today’s recipe does not call for any coconut oil or other coconut products.

So coconut-haters can indulge as well!

Print This Recipe [mrp_rating_result show_count="false" show_rich_snippets="false"]


  • 3 oz chocolate bar of choice or chocolate chips
  • 2 tbsp cream cheese (Tofutti and Trader Joes both make vegan cream cheese)
  • powdered sugar or uncut stevia to taste
  • optional, replace 1 tbsp of the cream cheese with peanut butter
  • mini muffin liners


Bring the cream cheese to room temperature so that it is very soft and spreadable. Stir in your sweetener (and pb, if using), and set aside. Break up your chocolate into small pieces, then carefully melt it completely. (If you’ve never melted chocolate before, it’s best to google how to melt chocolate.) Spoon a scant tsp of the melted chocolate into each muffin liner, spread a little up the sides of the liner, then freeze 15 minutes or until hardened. Smooth a scant tsp cream cheese on top of the hardened chocolate, then cover with a scant 1/2 tbsp chocolate sauce. Immediately return to the freezer to set. Once hardened (after about 30 minutes), you can peel off the wrappers. I store leftovers in the freezer.

    I have to say I loled at the “if you have never melted chocolate before, it’s best to google it.” I didn’t do that the first time I ever melted chocolate and certainly paid the price!

  2. Emily J. says

    This is like the best Reese’s Pieces version ever! You are incredibly creative, Katie! =) Did you use paper or silicone cupcake liners? I’m sure the silicone would be much easier to peel away, but I don’t have any. Thanks!

  3. Larice says

    Oh my gracious…These look amazing! I will definitely be subbing in a tablespoon of peanut butter for the cream cheese. Thanks for this yummy and easy recipe!

  4. Sarah B says

    Confused why the title says peanut butter but there isn’t any in the recipe. Just because it’s shaped like a Reese’s doesn’t make it a Reese’s.

    • Anna says

      Not sure what you mean. The title says Cheesecake Stuffed Reeses. She does mention in the recipe list the option to replace the cream cheese with peanut butter

    • Allie says

      Confused why you would comment without actually reading the recipe. It lists peanut butter right there in the ingredient options.

      • Sarah B says

        I did read it, I just think its misleading that’s all. The recipe title would imply its both not one or the other.

        • Allie says

          Misleading? You mean because she forced you to buy the recipe and then you found out that it wasn’t what you expected?

          Oh wait. That’s right. Her recipes are free. If you got offended over something like this, I’d hate to see how you react when there’s actually something really worth getting offended over. Don’t you have better things to do with your time, troll?

          • Dana says

            I agree with Allie. If you don’t like the recipe, go elsewhere. Its unfortunate that some people just like to hear themselves complain.

  5. Dana says

    Katie, these look amazing and I love the photos too. Thank you for all that you do. Your recipes and cute stories make me smile.

  6. Leslie says

    I’m totally making these. Oh my goodness! I might make a few with peanut butter and a few without. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Lindsey @SimplyLindsey says

    I need to make these ASAP!! I loveeee chocolate and cheesecake and used to buy the Sarah Lee cheesecake bites all the time in high school. I can’t wait to try these! My cheesecake-loving hubby will be happy too! 🙂

  8. abby - little city adventures says

    Nope, not even fair that you posted this. Because now I need to make these and devour every single one by myself.

  9. Shaun Marsh says

    Gorgeous! This Cheesecake looks so indulgent Katie! Pinned!! I love how you’ve developed something delicious that packs a health punch as well! Thanks for posting.

  10. Erin says

    just made these with cream cheese mixed with yogurt and they are amazing!
    they are like little cups of ice cream 🙂
    my next batch is gonna be strawberry flavored

  11. ancilladomini1 says

    First time posting. We regularly indulge in the yummy creations you have here. Thank you so much for sharing your passion for chocolate! I thought I might try this with our homemade kefir cheese, which gets pretty solid, and then add stevia. Will try to let you know how it works out.
