Homemade Peanut Butter Cups

Updated: Nov 6, 2022

When you have a little one on a special diet for health reasons and they can’t eat any store-bought treats, Halloween can be a challenging holiday. During the week leading up to Halloween, my kitchen becomes a confectionary shop!

I made it my mission a few years ago to try to recreate some of my son’s favorites so he never felt left out of the candy indulgence. This year there was a special request… Reece’s peanut butter cups. Challenge accepted!

These homemade peanut butter cups are sweetened with only honey, made with healthy fats from cocoa butter and nut butters and are completely devoid of any artificial and potentially harmful



8 oz of cocoa butter, melted

3/4 cup honey

1/3 cup cashew butter

1 tbsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp cocoa powder (omit for SCD diet)

1/2 cup peanut butter for filling


  1. Melt cocoa butter in a saucepan on lowest heat until fully melted.

  2. Whisk in honey, cashew butter, vanilla, cocoa powder and salt until fully incorporated.

  3. Arrange silicone or paper muffin liners on a baking tray. Once mixture is cool enough, pour into the muffin liner about 1/3 way full. Place in freezer for at least 30 minutes.

  4. Once the bottom chocolate layer is frozen, place a spoonful of peanut butter on top, spread around gently with your fingers to fill in the middle layer.

5. Pour the remaining chocolate mixture on top, fully covering the peanut butter layer. Freeze again for at least 30 minutes.

Serving Size: Recipe yields approximately 12 peanut butter cups.

To prevent these from melting, they must be kept in the freezer. Let thaw for 10 minutes then enjoy!
