Making Mealtime Meaningful: See How We’re Giving Back with the New 12 Tomatoes Cares Program →

There are a number of feelings that we would prefer not to experience personally. No one wants to stub their toe or sprain their ankle. We would be hard-pressed to find anyone who clamors for a trip to the dentist. Of course, there are also food cravings that are extremely annoying.

Peanut butter cups would definitely rank high on the craving list for a lot people. When you’re in the mood for a peanut butter cup, absolutely nothing else will do. Tiktok user @bakingenvy shares the easy-to-follow recipe for microwave peanut butter cups and it’s a true game-changer.

To get started on this one, grab a mug and put two spoonfuls of peanut butter inside. Microwave your mug for 15 seconds and then add a spoonful of powdered sugar.

As soon as this mixture has been sufficiently flattened and rounded into form, drop on two spoonfuls of chocolate chips. You’ll want to make sure that the base is evenly coated, so watch the peanut butter as you are spreading the chips around. Next, microwave that mixture for precisely one minute and thirty seconds. Take a moment to spread out the melted chocolate. The finished product should look pretty nice.

Finally, the mug needs to be placed in the freezer for 15 minutes. The mug essentially functions as the holder for your gigantic peanut butter cup and the rest is pretty self-explanatory.

The comment section on this is an absolute gold mine, with many sharing ways to customize and tweak the base recipe for even more deliciousness!

“I love these but I melted the chocolate chips separately, then poured on top,” wrote one viewer. It’s pure genius! You could also reverse the formula, so that the peanut butter ends up on top. For what its worth, there are some who said that 1 minute and 30 seconds was too much. Judge your microwaves accordingly, and enjoy!
