Reduced Sugar Copycat Peanut Butter Cups Recipe


  1. Begin by mixing the creamy nut butter and the Purecane™ Confectioners Sweetener in a bowl together. Set aside.
  2. Line about 24 miniature muffin molds with paper liners. You can also use unlined silicone mini muffin molds.
  3. Measure out 2 cups of chocolate chips. Begin to melt them in a microwave safe bowl by warming them for 20-30 seconds at a time, removing from the microwave, stirring with a spoon, and heating for another 20 to 30 seconds until the chocolate has melted completely.
  4. Scoop about 1 tablespoon of the melted chocolate into the bottom of each muffin well. Then, scoop about ½ - 1 tablespoon of the nut butter mixture and drop it into the center of each chocolate filled muffin well. Spoon another tablespoon of melted chocolate over the peanut butter until it's completely covered.
  5. Transfer the muffin tray into your fridge and let them set for at least one hour.
  6. Remove and serve immediately. The peanut butter cups should easily peel away from the paper liner or lift out of the silicone molds. Enjoy!
