These Dark Chocolate PB&J Cups are a nostalgic mashup of the fan-favorite childhood sandwich and one of the most beloved treats!

They are so simple to make and are a healthy, but equally delicious, alternative to regular store-bought peanut butter cups, which are loaded with sugar and unnecessary additives.

Can I Make These In Advance?
Yes! I always have a stash of these of PB&J cups in my freezer. They make the best treat. This recipe will keep for up to a month in the freezer in an airtight container.

Dark Chocolate PB&J Cups Ingredients

Can I Use Any Kind Of Nut Butter?
Yes! You can use any kind of nut butter; however, I recommend the Fx-approved fresh ground nut butters in Heinen’s Produce Department. They carry multiple varieties, so there is something for everyone!

Dark Chocolate PB&J Cups

Dark Chocolate PB&J Cups


  • Endangered Species dark chocolate bars, 70% cacao or higher
  • 1 cup Heinen’s fresh ground nut butter, any variety
  • ½ jar St. Dalfour jelly, any flavor


  1. Line a muffin pan with paper or silicone muffin liners.
  2. Place the nut butter in the freezer for an hour. This will make it easier to scoop.
  3. Chop the chocolate bar into bite-size pieces. Pulsing it in a food processor works too.
  4. Add the chocolate to a microwave-safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds. Stir with a small whisk, then place the bowl back in the microwave for 30 seconds. Whisk the chocolate again. If chunks of chocolate still remain, place the bowl back in the microwave and heat in 15 second intervals until it completely melts. Be careful not to burn the chocolate.
  5. Scoop 1/2 Tbsp. of melted chocolate into the bottom of each lined muffin cup.
  6. Add 1 tsp. of nut butter and ½ tsp. of jelly.
  7. Pour 1 Tbsp. of chocolate on top. Repeat until all of the muffin cups are filled.
  8. Place the PB&J cups in the freezer until the chocolate has hardened.
  9. Remove from the freezer and enjoy.

Heinen's Grocery Store

By Heinen's Grocery Store

In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
