  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup or honey
  • 6 ounces chocolate (1 cup regular-sized chocolate chips)
  • flaky sea salt, optional


  1. In a small bowl, mix the peanut butter and maple syrup and stir until well blended.
  2. Fill a mini cupcake pan with liners or arrange mini cupcake liners on plates.
  3. Melt the chocolate in the microwave for 30-second intervals, stirring after each one, or on the stove with a double boiler.
  4. Fill the bottom of each cup with 1 teaspoon of the melted chocolate. Add a small dollop of peanut butter mixture in the center, about 1/2 teaspoon. Top with another teaspoon of chocolate.
  5. Freeze them for 5 minutes.
  6. Sprinkle sea salt lightly over the tops, then freeze until firm for about 25 minutes more.
