Tutorial: Easy Peanut Butter Cups with a Twist

Whenever I get an urge to eat a peanut butter cup I get my melting chocolate and my crunchy peanut butter out and prepare it. It is super easy to make peanut butter cups in your home. It takes less than 15min. And the ingredients are easy to find. This time, when I made them I kept picturing cinnamon and chocolate together. So, I added a tiny bit of cinnamon on each cup. It tasted actually pretty good.

I suck taking photos!
The original peanut butter cups has the peanut butter wrapped in chocolate, but in my version I prefer to have the peanut butter and chocolate mixed together. I like to mix it in because it's less time consuming and I like the even distribution of the ingredients and you taste them both in each bite.

Because I didn't have enough milk chocolate I had to complete it with white chocolate. There isn't really that much of a difference of taste between the two, but a lot of people prefer milk chocolate over the white (including me). So you tell me, which chocolate is your favorite, milk or white?

Originally they are more milk chocolate colored but because of the white chocolate
they came out more peanut buttery colored.

Cinnamon Peanut Butter Cups


  • Melting chocolate (milk, white or whichever you prefer)
  • Crunchy peanut butter (I used Skippy)
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Cupcake pan
  • Cupcake liners
  • Spoons
  • Microwave safe bowl
  1. Start by melting the chocolate in microwave safe bowl in 10sec intervals. Mix between each 10sec to ensure proper melting.
  2. After you have all your chocolate melted, take big spoonfuls of peanut butter and mix it in the chocolate. I usually mix in a little less peanut butter than chocolate. Mix it until you see the peanuts evenly distributed.
  3. Take your cupcake liners and insert them in your cupcake pan. Pour onto each cupcake liner. You can fill them to the top and have a very big peanut butter or just coat the bottom of the liner to make a  thin peanut butter cup. I usually just coat the bottom, I have never filled it to the top. But, me my guest and fill it and see how it turns out; I mean it's chocolate eventually its going to harden and it's not going to taste any different.
  4. Move the pan around so the mixture levels. 
  5. Sprinkle a little bit of cinnamon onto each cup. You can always mix it into the mixture before pouring into the liners. 
  6. Place on fridge and wait until it hardens. 
  7. Enjoy!

Tell me your thoughts I want to hear them. Would you add more cinnamon or do you prefer it without the cinnamon? Would you try and make them? Any questions? Ask me on the comments and I will try and help.

Until next time!
