I don’t crave peanut butter that often, but the other day, it happened.  And, Peanut Butter and Chocolate Puddle Cups were born…do you want some?  They’re awfully cute and tasty.

First, make your peanut butter cookie dough.  It’s the same cookie dough that I use to make my favorite peanut butter cookies.  Mix 1 cup salted butter, 1 cup peanut butter, 1 cup brown sugar, 1 cup white sugar, 2 eggs, and 1 tsp. vanilla, until well combined.

In a separate bowl, mix together 3 cups flour, 1 1/2 tsp. baking soda, and 1/2 tsp. salt.  Dump it in the mixer with the wet ingredients and mix well.  Roll the dough into small 1 inch balls and place inside a sprayed mini-muffin tin.  Bake at 350 for 10 – 12 minutes, or until the edges have just a hint of a darker golden color.

Let everything cool for just a minute, then take a small spoon (baby spoon?) and press the insides of the peanut butter cup down to make a well for the chocolate.  Set aside.

Start your chocolate filling.  Dump 2 cups of milk chocolate chips, 2 tsp. vanilla and 2 cans sweetened condensed milk into a microwave safe bowl.  Microwave for a minute, stir, microwave another minute, stir…continue until you have a smooth chocolate filling.

Chop up some peanuts to garnish the tops…

And, fill up the peanut butter cups with the chocolate!  Sprinkle a few nuts on top and you’re done.  This recipe makes about 50 of these little things…and there will be chocolate sauce left over (drizzle it on some ice cream.)

Peanut Butter & Chocolate Puddle Cups

(adapted from a Taste of Homes recipe)

Peanut Butter & Chocolate Puddle Cups
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1½ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • Chocolate Filling
  • 1 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 1 cans sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • Peanuts, finely chopped
  1. Cream the wet ingredients together in a mixer (butter, peanut butter, brown sugar, white sugar, eggs, and vanilla).
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, and salt).
  3. Add the dry to the wet and mix well.
  4. Roll into small 1 inch balls and place into the wells of a mini-muffin tin.
  5. Bake at 350 for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the edges start to golden slightly.
  6. Let cool for just a minute, then using a small spoon (baby spoons work great), slowly press the center of the peanut butter cup down to make a hollow well for the chocolate filling. Let cool while you make the filling.
  7. Combine all ingredients in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for about 1 minute, stir, heat for another minute, stir. Continue until you have a smooth filling.
  8. Fill in the wells of the peanut butter cups with the chocolate and sprinkle with chopped peanuts. Makes about 50 mini puddle cups.

    I just made something very similar last week. They were delicious. Same peanut butter cookie concept but instead of the chocolate mixture you just push a mini reese’s peanut butter cup into the center. YUM!!! I’m gonna have to try this too.

        We loved them!  Taking them to a friends house tomorrow.  My batch made about 60 cups and have enough chocolate sauce left over to feed an army!  think these will go on my Christmas cookie list this year.  even better it made me get out my only 2 cans of condensed milk and they were about to expire, so what better way to use them :)

          Oh, good!  I thought about just halving the chocolate sauce recipe, but then I was paranoid about not having enough. But, I’m sure you could.

    What size of condensed milk do you use? I live in Canada and sometimes our products are different sizes. Thanks!

    I make a similar version of these cookies, except I just unwrap a Hershey’s kiss (any flavor works depending on what you’re craving) and push it slightly down in the middle of the cookie when they first come out of the oven. Small Reese’s peanut butter cups work great too! Yum!

    Holy Dinah!!  I did it!!  I am usually a disaster at baking, but these turned out like a dream! A HUGE hit at hubby’s office (because suddenly I have been informed he needs to bring something in for teatime once a week…uhhh, guess who gets to do that now…not hubby-dearest obviously <3 :) Thanks for sharing this on the facebook feed.  I have shared this with tons of people already!
