These Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Cups are simply irresistible, consisting of a chocolate chewy soft cookie crust filled with a smooth and creamy peanut butter filling that is simply heavenly.

You can always use various fillings, your favorite frostings,  fruits, ganache, and ice cream, the variations are endless and create amazing desserts each time.

How to make chocolate peanut butter cookie cups

Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F (180°C) and greasing a standard muffin tin with butter.

In a bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, instant coffee, salt, and baking soda. Set this mixture aside until ready to use.

In another bowl, mix the butter with both sugars until creamy. Add the egg and vanilla extract, and mix until well incorporated. Gradually incorporate the flour mixture and chocolate chips into the butter mixture.

Using an ice cream scoop, divide the cookie dough evenly between the 12 muffin cups. Bake for 12-13 minutes. While the cookie cups are still warm, use a small jar to press down the center of each cookie to create a well.

Allow the cookie cups to cool in the muffin tins for about 10 minutes, then transfer them to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Next, prepare the filling. In a large bowl, mix the cream cheese until smooth. Add the powdered sugar and peanut butter, and mix until well combined.

In a separate bowl, whip the cream until stiff peaks form. Gradually incorporate the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture.

Transfer the peanut butter filling into a piping bag fitted with a 1M star tip, and pipe the filling into the chocolate cookie cups.

Refrigerate the filled cookie cups for at least 1 hour before serving. Optionally, decorate with grated chocolate before serving, if desired.

    1. I have the same question. Wondering the answer is

      1. Ella Marincus-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

        You definitely can. I would reduce the baking time up to half, for about 7-8 minutes. But keep an eye on them, every oven is slightly different.

    Looks delicious…anxious to try

    I was baking like crazy for a church function and used your frosting in several of my desserts. I actually ran out of cream cheese but had a container of mascarpone. OMG! Everyone had a fit over that light peanut butter flavor. I piped it in mini brownie cups, small Lady Locks [cream horns], puff pastry baked on cannoli forms, and even in sugar cookie cups. That was the most amazing light frosting I’ve ever tasted. It was delicious. I just had to share. Next time, I will be sure and use your cookie cup.

    1. Ella - Home Cooking Adventure Author says:

  11. This looks so good! What a great treat to make with kids!
