Delicious homemade mini peanut butter cups! This recipe is so easy. You’ll need chocolate chips, peanut butter and maple syrup (I add flaky sea salt, too). Recipe yields 15 mini candies; multiply as necessary.
You’ll need mini muffin liners, too!
Recipe adapted from these chocolate peppermint cups.
*Peanut butter notes: I’ve used a range of natural peanut butters here, and they all work well. If your peanut butter is salt-free, I would stir a little pinch of salt into the filling. Crunchy peanut butter works if you want some crunch. You can also use almond butter instead of peanut butter.
**Chocolate notes: I used Ghiradelli bittersweet chocolate chips (60% cacao content) and thought they were perfect. Use chocolate chips that you enjoy on their own—I prefer darker chocolate, but milk chocolate will work, too.
Make it dairy free: Choose dairy-free chocolate chips. Check out Enjoy Life and Pascha brands.
Make it vegan: Choose dairy-free chocolate chips (see above) and maple syrup instead of honey.
Make it soy free: Make sure your chocolate is free of soy derivatives like soy lecithin (see above).
Make it nut free: Use sunflower seed butter instead of peanut butter.
