Easy 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cups

1 comment

In my opinion, you can’t go wrong with anything chocolate and peanut butter. I could live off the combo and have loved it since I was a little girl! These peanut butter cups are so ridiculously easy! Just three ingredients to make the best and simplest peanut butter cups! 

What you need to make peanut butter cups + substitutions:

  • Chocolate Chips- You can use whatever you prefer. Dark, milk, semi-sweet, a mix, up to you!
  • Ghee- I love using ghee for the rich and delicious flavor it adds. You can use butter or coconut oil.
  • Peanut butter- Obviously the classic is peanut butter. I love using chunky, but creamy is great too! I prefer peanut butter with just peanuts and sea salt, but any kind works. You can also substitute with any kind of nut/ seed butter.

Tips for making peanut butter cups:

  • Use silicone baking liners- I love these ones that I got on Amazon. They’re the best for reusing!
  • Regular sized vs mini sized- I love giant, thick peanut butter cups but you can easily make 24 mini cups as well.

Alright, let’s get to making the recipe! Enjoy friends!
