DIY Homemade Peanut Butter Cup Recipe

homemade peanut butter cups

Peanut butter cups are one of my favorite guilty-pleasures! But, all of the preservatives and questionable ingredients left me wanting to find a “healthier’ alternative to the store-bought deliciousness I coveted as a kid!

In under 10 minutes, not only are these peanut butter cups super simple to make, but they will most likely become a new family favorite too!


  • 1 1/2 cup peanut butter (or almond butter)
  • 3 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 10 sheets of graham crackers  (crushed)


  1. Line muffin tray with muffin liners. We used mini muffin liners and a stainless steel mini muffin tray for bite-sized peanut butter cups!
  2. Crush graham crackers with a kitchen utensil or in a reusable stasher bag like we did!
  3. In a medium-sized bowl, add the crushed graham crackers, powdered sugar, and peanut butter / almond butter. Mix until combined.
  4. Melt the chocolate chips on the stove or in the microwave. Stir every 30 to 40 seconds until smooth.
  5. Add a spoonful of melted chocolate into each muffin liner. Spread evenly.
  6. Next, add the peanut butter / almond butter mixture.
  7. Finally, top with melted chocolate and spread evenly.
  8. Refrigerate for an hour or expedite the process by putting the cups in the freezer first!

*All organic ingredients were used.
