posted on | updated on | by Zuri Girl

Valentine’s day is just around the corner, and if you are looking for a last minute idea that’s not store bought, Zuri Girl is here to the rescue! We have a simple, no-bake Valentine’s treat that even the most novice bakers can handle. We are sure that any of your Valentines or Galentines will love this treat, as it is not so easy to find here in Switzerland. 

Peanut Butter Cups-8

Show your love with homemade chocolate peanut butter cups! No need to import Reese’s when you can make them at home. Plus, you get the added bonus of using your preference of chocolate. 

Just a little bit of melting, a little bit of refrigerating, and you are all set. Buy some red or pink muffin liners to make it extra festive. 

– 2 bars of 70% dark chocolate, 100 grams each

– 3 tablespoons coconut oil, divided

– ½ cup // 135 grams 100% peanut butter

Line a mini muffin tin with mini muffin liners (regular size will work too, you will just have bigger cups). In a double boiler on the lowest heat, melt the chocolate with 2 tablespoons of coconut oil. Place a small spoonful of melted chocolate into each muffin liner, just enough to cover the bottom. Place them in the freezer for a minute or two to get slightly hardened. Melt the last tablespoon of coconut oil and stir it into the peanut butter. Take the muffin tin out of the freezer and scoop a spoonful of peanut butter into each muffin liner. Spoon the leftover chocolate on top of the peanut butter, hopefully having enough to cover the peanut butter completely (but not to worry if it doesn’t).

Refrigerate or freeze until hardened. Keep them refrigerated in an air tight container until ready to eat. 

Enjoy your Valentine’s Day treat!
