  • Muffin tin with 12 holes
  • 12 baking cup liners
  • Small bowl
  • Small spoon
  • Small silicon spatula (optional)


  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup (4tbsp) pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup (4tbsp) coconut oil


  • Put the baking cup liners in the muffin tin.
  • In the small bowl, add the 1/4 cup of cocoa powder, 2 TBSP of maple syrup, and 2 TBSP of coconut oil. Mix using the spoon or small spatula until a smooth, runny mixture is formed.
  • Use the small spoon to scoop the chocolate sauce evenly into the 12 baking cup liners and then place the entire muffin tin in the freezer for 20 minutes.
  • Once the chocolate has frozen, use the small spoon to scoop ~1TBSP of peanut butter and then scrape into off into the center of each cup on top of the frozen chocolate sauce. Use the back of the spatula to flatten the peanut butter and remove any peaks. Place the muffin tin back in the freezer for 10 minutes.
  • Repeat steps 2 and 3 to put the chocolate sauce on top of the frozen peanut butter.
  • Enjoy!
