DIY Tutorial: Yummy & Easy Peanut Butter Cups Recipe

March 10, 2012

Hi! My name is Natty. I love making things, baking things and if I am honest, eating things. I turned my passion for design, craft and cooking into creating beautiful bespoke dessert tables. I love seeing the reaction from couples who see their table for the first time, it never gets old.

Today I wanted to share with the readers of Rock n Roll Bride one of my favourite treats. I think they’d make great homemade wedding favours!

Supplies Needed:

♥ Cup measures
♥ A couple of bowls
♥ A spoon
♥ Silicone cases or mini cupcake cases.
♥ Microwave


♥ 1 cup of Peanut butter smooth or crunchy depends on your preference
♥ 1/2 Cup of icing sugar
♥ 1/2 Teaspoon of Salt
♥ 400grams Chocolate. Milk, Dark or white. ( I use a mixture of white and milk for a sweeter taste that’s not too chocolatey)
♥ Sprinkles/ decorations.

Makes around 36, depending on how many you devour in the process.


Step 1: Measure out all your ingredients, sampling some chocolate if you desire.

Step 2: In a bowl mix 1/2 a cup of peanut butter with the icing sugar and salt until well combined.

Step 3: In the other bowl, place your white chocolate and remaining peanut butter in the microwave until melted. Keep checking every 30 seconds or so as you do not want it to burn.

Step 4: Add the milk chocolate, stir and microwave again, until all chocolate has melted.

Step 5: Take your moulds/mini cupcake cases and fill the bottoms with a covering of your mixture. Set to one side.

Step 6: Using a teaspoon measure, scoop up a ball of your peanut butter cup filling. Roll this into a ball and drop into the chocolate mixture, aiming for the centre. If you can refrain from eating the mixture at this point you are doing much better than I am.

Step 7: Spoon over more of your Chocolate mixture, until your little peanut butter centres are smothered in deliciousness.

Step 8: (Optional) If you want to glam up your cups, now is the time. Whilst the chocolate is still wet on the top, sprinkle, shake and decorate your cups to your hearts desire.

Step 9: Pop into the fridge until set. 30-60 minutes.

Step 10: Gobble all peanut butter cups up, and start again……no sorry don’t do that. Do, wrap in individual clear bags tied with ribbon or twine to match your theme.

Step 11: (Optional) When they’re completely set you could also pop them out of their cases and give them to your guests in cute paper bags!

Natalie has asked me to dedicate this post to her Mum who sadly passed away this week. I have no words to express how sorry I am for you and your family, Natalie. Your email to me yesterday broke my heart. She must have been incredibly proud of you.

With Natalie’s permission, I’m sharing this:

Hi Kat

Thanks so much for letting me know about the blog post. I am currently going through literally the worst time of my life, as sadly my beautiful Mum and best friend passed away on Friday.

She was so proud of my little business and wanted me to do well.
When I told her just last Thursday whilst visiting her in hospital that you would be featuring me soon, she was so excited and could not wait to see it.

Sadly now she never will, my heart is just totally broken.

If it is possible, and I totally understand if you don’t feel its right, would it be possible to dedicate the post to my lovely mum Marie?

Thank you for featuring me and thank you so much for replying to my emails.
All my love
Natty xxxx
