Peanut Butter Cups


It's the holiday season, and what kind of holidays would they be without a little sweetness. Try this delicious peanut butter cup recipe by HIF food master Helen from According to Helen, "This is the easiest way to make peanut butter cups ...with only 3 tasty ingredients (milk chocolate, white chocolate & peanut butter). You can also pile them into a glass jar, and you'll have the perfect last-minute Christmas gift too!" . We hope you enjoy!


  • 50 grams/2 ounces white chocolate
  • ½ a cup peanut butter (smooth or crunchy – I like crunchy)
  • 320 grams/11 ounces milk or dark chocolate (your choice!)
  • a handful roasted salted peanuts, chopped (I used a small food processor)
  • 10 cupcake wrappers


  1. Break up the white chocolate into pieces and melt it in a bowl together with the peanut butter. You can do this in the microwave in 30-second spurts (I find 3 x 30 seconds is about right) or in a glass bowl set over a pan of simmering water*.
  2. Stir the peanut butter and white chocolate mixture together well and set aside.
  3. Now melt the milk/dark chocolate in a separate bowl in the same way as described above.
  4. Line a cupcake/muffin tin with cupcake wrappers, and spoon a teaspoon of milk/dark chocolate into each. Then spoon a teaspoon of the white choc/peanut butter mixture on top. Freeze the whole tray for about five minutes.**
  5. Spoon another teaspoonful of milk/dark chocolate into each cupcake case and smooth it over a little so that it covers the peanut butter layer. Finally, sprinkle a pinch of nuts over each cup.


*Freezing after the white choc and peanut butter layer helps the top layer to go on more cleanly.
