This is a healthy version that is easy to adjust. The best part? Only 2 ingredients! Since it is not a tempered chocolate, it’s an easy recipe to follow.

  1. Ingredients

    Gather your ingredients. Remember, you will need mini cupcake liners.


  2. Chocolate

    Chop the chocolate and melt in the microwave or bain-marie.

    If using the microwave, it is recommended to heat in 30 second segments at a time, mixing well in between each one. Be careful not to burn the chocolate, it is best to heat gradually. If you only have a few pieces left to melt, the residual heat will melt it.
  3. Peanut butter filling

    Make sure it is creamy with no lumps. Use a spoon to mix well.

    The amount will depend on the size of your liners and the amount you put into each one.
  4. Step 1

    Place a small amount of chocolate in the liner (approx. 1/2 tsp, depending on the liner). Coat the sides of the liner to form walls (see video below).

  5. First round in the fridge

    Place them in the fridge until they harden, around 10-15 minutes.

  6. Step 2

    Place a little of the peanut butter in the center. Be careful not to have it touch the liner, because the chocolate will not be able to seal. Still, it's not the end of the world - the irregulars are the chef's treat!

  7. Step 3

    Lightly tap the tray on the table to have the peanut butter spread a bit.

    Cover with chocolate and tap again. If desired, you can decorate the top with a peanut.

  8. Second round in the fridge

    Chill in the fridge until they harden, around 15-20 minutes. Place in a sealed container in the fridge for up to one week.

    Since this is not proper tempered chocolate, it is recommended to store in the fridge since they usually will melt quickly.


You can use the chocolate you prefer. We like to use a darker chocolate (healthier), so we used 75%, but you could also mix 75% with a sweeter chocolate to find the balance you want. You can also add a bit of powdered sugar to the unsweetened peanut butter if you like it a bit sweeter. This was not included in this recipe since this recipe reflected our taste and we try to reduce sugar where possible.

Variation: You can use almond butter instead of peanut butter to change the flavor.

The portions are approximations since much will depend on the size of the liners and the overall size of the Reece's cups.
