Peanut Butter Nutella Cups

Oh heyyyy, little peanut butter buckets.

And not just peanut butter buckets, but peanut butter buckets filled with a nutella core.  Nutella is always a nice accent piece to adorn a snack with.  And this fabulous snack/dessert/oatmeal-topping is nut butter on nut butter, which is just joyful.

Where to start? I should start by mentioning that these are my most favorite things I’ve made in awhile.  They’re so easy.  I mean, 4 ingredients easy.

I was inspired by Ashley’s Inside-Out Peanut Butter Cups, but scaled down the recipe to just 3 peanut butter cups.  Just 3 cute, little cups to fill your snack and dessert times for the week.  3 for YOU.  All for YOU.  Or you can share.

So if you’re looking for an after lunch sweet something, this recipe is for you.  In Ashley’s post she mentioned that she likes to chop her peanut butter cups into 1/4ths and keep them in the freezer.  So I’ve been doing the same.  Whenever I need a sweet something to finish a meal I head to the freezer for a couple pieces.  So delish.

While I still find Reese’s peanut butter cups to be completely delicious, I think this peanut butter nutella-filled version gives Reese’s a run for their money.

Oh look! A peanut butter pool being made.

  1. Whew… another doozy of a delicious looking recipe! :)  I have to admit that I sometimes have to avoid visiting your great blog because there are so many desserts…. too tempting!  But, I’ll be eternally grateful to you for your single serving fudge cake!  I try to eat as little added sugar as possible but I save my daily amount for my nightly fudge cake. I use only a tsp. of honey though.  So delicious and my nightly, healthy indulgence. :)  

  2. Oh my, I love that these are inside out pb cups!  The peanut butter is defiently my favorite part, and the nutella doesn’t hurt either:)

  10. Oh my goodness these look so delicious! I just saw them on food gawker and had to see the recipe! They sound amazing. I definitely need to try making them! Yummmm!!!

  11. Is this recipe only for one peanut butter cup?

  12. o m g it is so easy but I have a question do you melt the pea nut butter

  13. Hello do you have to use coconut oil? As I don’t have any

    • It thins the peanut butter and makes it easier to pour, but the recipe may work without it. However I imagine they may not come out quite as pretty, but that’s not important to everyone haha!
