Peanut Butter Cup

The simplest recipes are often the most enjoyable. Back when I lived in Illinois, there was a restaurant that I would frequent that rarely if ever served anything I didn’t like. The beauty of it was that their dinner menu was always changing; a small but complete selection of new, fresh, seasonal dishes every single week. One of the few constants was the “adult peanut butter cup”, a more grown-up version of a childhood favorite. This is my attempt at recreating this for myself, now that I’m four hours away. I have to say, it’s a pretty close match. It is a sumptuous, rich dessert that is sure to please you and anyone who’s lucky enough to have you make it for them.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes


  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 0.5 tsp vanilla extract


  • In a medium-sized bowl, whip the heavy whipping cream with a handheld electric mixer on medium to high speed until peaks begin forming. The volume should almost double.
  • Add half the peanut butter to the whipped cream, and whip at low to medium speed to incorporate. Add the second half and repeat.
  • Add the vanilla and honey, and whip at low speed to incorporate.
  • Grab a large sandwich-sized ziplock bag, open it, and turn the zipper part inside out. Gently spoon the peanut butter cream mixture into the bag, zipping it closed when finished.
  • With a pair of scissors, cut a diagonal chunk from one of the bottom corners of the bag making a piping tip about 1/2″ wide. Pipe the peanut butter cream mixture into four small custard dishes or ramekins.
  • Can be topped with chocolate melting chips, syrup, ganache, or whatever suits you. Place in freezer for 10-15 minutes to set up. Serve and enjoy!
