Chocolate and peanut butter combined is arguably one of the most delicious flavor combos ever. Salty, sweet and indulgent, it’s a classic dessert duo that has never failed to make me happy. If you’re a fan of Reese’s peanut butter cups (and how could you not be?!), why not try making a no-bake, larger-than-life peanut butter cup yourself?

This recipe is essentially fool-proof and requires the most minimal of baking skills! Here’s what you need to make a giant peanut butter cup at home:

  • a tart pan
  • milk chocolate
  • a jar of peanut butter
  • melted butter
  • powdered sugar.

Line the tart pan with parchment paper. Fill it halfway with melted milk chocolate and let it freeze. Next up, get your peanut butter filling ingredients together in a bowl and blend it all together until it becomes a creamy bowl of nutty goodness. Then spread your peanut butter blend on to your hardened chocolate. Lastly, spread even more melted milk chocolate on top. Freeze for 30 to 60 minutes.

BOOM. You’ve created a delicious masterpiece that’s guaranteed to be a hit at any get-together. Especially birthdays. Trust me on this one.

Lastly, melt your chocolate chips and spread the love over your peanut butter mix. Pop this into the freezer to chill and enjoy.
