Crispy, crunchy, peanut buttery chocolate crunch cups – made with just 3 ingredients!

chocolate cups

Sometimes you’re invited to an event at the last minute and have literally just a few minutes to come up with something to bring.

At this point, you have TWO options:

Option A: Stop at Trader Joes along the way to pick up a pre-made dish, and try not to get lost in the wine section for hours…

Option B: Whip up a batch of these no-bake chocolate crunch cups, because you probably already have all the ingredients to make them!

(Sadly, option B does not involve wine.)

peanut butter crunch cups

Unless it’s Texas in the summer (i.e. 110 degrees), the crunch cups are fine to leave out at room temperature without melting.

If you’re bringing them to a party, I’d probably recommend stirring the peanut butter–if using–into the chocolate instead of spreading it on top after they’re chilled. That way they will be less messy to transport!

See the video, below:

 

Feel free to play around with the base recipe and vary the flavor by changing up the nut butter, adding a few drops or almond or peppermint extract, or by stirring in any of the following:

Chia Seeds

Cacao Nibs

Shredded Coconut

Hemp Seeds

Crushed Walnuts

Cinnamon

Sesame Seeds

Wine

Wait… How did that last one get in there? 😂

I’d initially planned a more Fall-themed recipe for today, but it’s been so unseasonably warm around here (not complaining!!) that this no-bake recipe seemed much better suited. For even more no-bake recipes:

Ingredients

  • 1 cup chocolate chips or broken-up chocolate (6oz)
  • 1/2 cup to 1 cup rice crispies cereal, depending on desired crispiness
  • optional 2 tsp oil
  • optional peanut butter or allergy-friendly sub
  • add-ins of choice (see list earlier in the post)

Instructions

Start by carefully melting the chocolate. Stir in the oil, if using. (I always use it, because it makes the chocolate much smoother.) You can either stir some nut butter in with the chocolate now or save it for later to add on top if you wish. Stir everything together with the rice crispies. Smooth into a lined muffin tin or mini muffin tin, OR use a mini cookie scoop and place on a parchment-lined plate. Refrigerate or freeze to set. Top with peanut butter if desired. I like to store leftovers in the fridge, but they can easily be taken to a party or left out at room temperature for a few hours without melting.
