I’d been wanting to try out the idea for a while, and this past weekend offered the perfect excuse: a party on the other side of the city, so I needed a dessert I could easily transport that wouldn’t melt during the drive.

It was technically an Oscars party, but none of us were as interested in watching the awards as we were in having an excuse to throw a party and eat food.

    Great idea with the chocolate covered peanut butter cups. Only question is, when I melted the chocolate chips they became to hard fast before I could even get it into the ice cubes tray. What suggestions would you make? I made them and waiting till i try some. Many yums!!

    These look so delicious! Can’t wait to try.

    One recipe I would love to see on this blog is a healthy flan recipe! I would be so happy if there was

  3. Safina says

    Can these be made without chocolate chips? Like could I do a mixture of cocoa powder, coconut oil, and maple syrup in place of them? If so, what measurements of those ingredients should I do? Thanks, Safina.

    This is such a fun recipe! I just made this with my 2 year old. It was messy (everything is messy with a toddler-helper). But so worth the mess

    Agreed. I made some from a different recipe and in cup cake tin yet I think we can all agree the combo of peanut butter and chocolate is AMAZING!

  7. AnneSo says

    What a great idea ! And we can make infinite variations… I just tried a fruit flavored version with almond and berries…
    Coating : chocolate, a litte cocoonut oil and red raspberry organic aroma
    Filling : almond butter, coconut oil + a frozen berrie
    They are still in the frige and I’m eager to eat them ! I will try your recipe when I buy some peanut butter (husband just finished it yesterday !). Please excuse my poor english, I’m french 😉

    I LOVE mint and chocolate together, so instead of the peanut butter filling, I mixed honey and a few drops of peppermint oil and layered it inside the chocolate. I’ve also made a coconut almond filling by mixing a few slivered almonds to my coconut butter in the processor.

  9. Tiffany says

    I’ve recently had a huge craving for peanut butter and chocolate!! I blame Dunkin’ Donuts and their Reese’s peanut butter donut. Thank you for his easy recipe that I can have ready by tonight!

    “A couple of hours” no way. I live in AZ twenty minutes at the max. But thanks for the recipe, I’ll be making these for Christmas this year. ? 🙂
