Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

Paleo, Vegan and free of gluten, wheat, dairy, egg, soy and refined sugar

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups are my vice at healthy food cafes so it’s about time I have my own stash of these so no excuses to buy them out!


  • 1 1/4 cups chopped cacao butter
  • 2 tablespoons virgin coconut oil
  • 1 cup cacao powder
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • Pinch of salt
  • 6 teaspoons smooth peanut butter


  1. Melt cacao butter and coconut oil together.
  2. Stir in cacao powder.
  3. Add maple syrup, vanilla and salt, stir to combine.
  4. Spoon half of the mixture into a small cupcake tin, lined with 12 cases so they’re easy to get out.
  5. Leave the other half of the chocolate mixture at room temperature.
  6. Refrigerate for 20-25 minutes, until just before the chocolate sets.
  7. Spoon half a teaspoon of peanut butter into each case.
  8. Spoon the rest of the chocolate mixture on top covering the peanut butter.
  9. Chill for an hour and then they’re ready to serve.  Store in the fridge so they don’t melt.
