These chocolate peanut butter cups are simply the best! No sugar, no dairy, no artificial sweeteners, no gluten.
This recipe makes about 8 cups. If you love chocolate and peanut butter as much as I do, these cups won’t last very long. They are rich, sweet, and mmm so good!

Pour in the silicone cups, only about 1/3 up the side.Place the silicone cups on a baking sheet or in a muffin pan and freeze for about 10 – 15 minutes until they are firm.

Thanks for pointing this out, Laura! It looks like the nutrition info was off. I just updated it. Hope you enjoy them if you give them a try!
I’m completely addicted to these! I make my own cashew butter and use that in place of the peanut butter. Either way it’s FANTASTIC!!! It also has ways less sugar (honey), so when I eat other things made with chocolate I find them too sweet.
Can you substitute coco powder?
Yes, i think you can!
