15+ Recipes With Peanut Butter Cups
It’s no secret that peanut butter cups are one of the best candies of all time. There’s not a single baked good or treat that can’t be improved by a peanut butter cup’s presence—our Fudgy Flourless Brownies and Garbage Disposal Cookies are ample evidence, so give them a try if you don’t believe us. If you really want to indulge your peanut butter cup obsession, through, you'll want to try our Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie, Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake, or Triple-Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Puppy Chow.
Garbage Disposal Cookies
Affectionately named, these thick, loaded peanut butter cookies are kind of like kitchen sink cookies, only better. Why? Because they’re packed with Oreo cookies, Reese’s cups, and white chocolate, obviously. These are the cookies you make after a garbage day (or week), because you’ll feel exponentially better off after biting into a warm one fresh from the oven. Pro-tip: Sharing your batch of Garbage Disposal Cookies with a neighbor or friend is guaranteed to make you feel even better.
Peanut Butter S'mores
Grill a decadent dessert of Peanut Butter S'mores tonight. Just leave the heat on after the burgers are all done and cook up our version of this campfire favorite.
Triple-Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Puppy Chow
This recipe is a staff favorite. Sweet, creamy, and slightly salty, Triple-Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Puppy Chow will become your new, go-to way to make the classic chocolate-cereal treat.
Fudgy Flourless Brownies
No flour? No problem. The richest, fudgiest brownies you’ll ever bake don’t actually need it. The key to keeping these decadent one-pot brownies flour-free is cornstarch, and a combination of cocoa powder and melted chocolate give them their incredible chocolatey personality. The recipe calls for unsweetened natural cocoa; however, you can use Dutch processed if that’s what you have on hand (the flavor will be slightly different—but still delicious). With this flourless brownie base, you truly can’t go wrong—so while it’s not required, we highly encourage adding your favorite mix-ins. We found that peanut butter cups take these fantastically fudgy brownies over the top (in the best way). Find more tips for baking perfect brownies in this guide.
Peanut Butter-Cup Cookies
Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chunk Blondies
Grilled Chicken with Sweet and Savory Peanut Sauce
This twist on the traditional Asian chicken dish has a very unique flavor, largely due to the use of peanut butter cups as the central flavoring agent. That's right, we created a rich sauce using a blend of soy, rice wine vinegar, seasonings, and chocolate-peanut butter cups.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake
These brownies literally get better with every item you toss on them. Pretzels? Sure! Leftover candy? Of course! Nuts? Why not?
Funnel Cake Ice-Cream Sandwiches
Make these for your next party and watch them disappear faster than you can say "funnel cake." The ice cream add-ins are suggestions, but you can use whatever you like--such as chopped candy bars, toasted and chopped nuts, or marshmallows. You can also roll the edges in toppings like sprinkles, graham cracker crumbs, or crushed Oreos. Keep in mind that hot oil is critical to a crispy funnel cake, so use a candy thermometer to monitor and maintain the oil's temperature.

Haunted Chocolate Bark
Decorate homemade chocolate bark with gummy worms, Kit Kat bars, candy corn, and more to make these festive treats.
