Peanut Butter and Jelly Cups Recipe

Last Update: December 12, 2022

Obsessed with peanut butter? Then this treat is for you! We take chocolate peanut butter cups to the next level by swirling in strawberry jam—PB’s classic sandwich companion—and the result is a portable, lick-your-fingers clean dessert both kids and adults will love. There’s a short (and sweet) list of ingredients inside, and we’re betting you already have some of them in your pantry.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Cups

Yield: 12 chocolate cups
Active Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes


½ cup NuttZo Organic Smooth Peanut Pro
¼ cup superfine almond flour
10 ounces dark chocolate chips
½ teaspoon coconut oil
¼ cup Crofter’s Organic Strawberry Fruit Spread
1 to 2 teaspoons flaky sea salt
12 mini parchment liners


Stir the NuttZo butter and almond flour in a small bowl until well blended.

Add chocolate chips and coconut oil to a double boiler; stir until chocolate is melted.

Line a 12-count mini muffin tin with liners. Scoop 1 teaspoon of melted chocolate into each liner, then use a clean, food-safe paintbrush to evenly coat the sides. Place in refrigerator and let set for 5 minutes. Add 1/2 teaspoon of nut butter to each cup; then add 1/2 teaspoon of jam on top. Once all 12 liners are filled, cover each cup with 1 teaspoon of melted chocolate. Tap the tin gently to help level it before placing in refrigerator; set for at least 30 minutes. Sprinkle with flaky salt before serving.
