  • 11.5 ounces dark chocolate baking chips divided (I used Guittard)
  • 4 teaspoons coconut oil divided (you may substitute with butter)
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon [flaky sea salt]


  • Place (12) paper or foil liners in the cavities of a standard muffin tin.
  • Fill a large saute pan with 2 inches of water and bring to a simmer for your double boiler. Place half of the chocolate chips and 2 teaspoons of coconut oil in a heat proof bowl. Place the bowl of chocolate into the simmering water and stir until melted.
  • Using a cookie scoop, evenly divide the chocolate between each liner and rap on the counter a few times to evenly distribute over the bottom of the liner. Freeze for 15 minutes.
  • Heat the peanut butter in the microwave for just a seconds to soften slightly and make it spreadable (if necessary). Using a cookie scoop or teaspoon, divide between each liner and spread over the top of the chocolate layer.
  • Melt the remaining chocolate and coconut oil in your double boiler using the same heat proof bowl. Divide evenly among the liners and rap on the counter until the chocolate covers the peanut butter layer. Sprinkle with the flaky sea salt and chill in the freezer for 15-20 minutes or in the refrigerator until set.
  • Enjoy!


  • If you prefer to use a dark chocolate bar, coarsely chop it before placing it the double boiler with the coconut oil.
  • For best results, store peanut butter cups in an air tight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks or freeze!
  • If you'd like a softer peanut butter cup, leave it out at room temp for just a few minutes before eating.
