  • (6 oz) of peanut butter
  • ¼ cup butter softened
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1½ cups of powdered sugar
  • 12 oz chocolate chips (I used milk chocolate)
  1. Mix the peanut butter, butter, brown sugar and powdered sugar together.
  2. Melt your chocolate chips in the microwave using a microwave safe bowl, stirring every 45 seconds.
  3. In your heart tray place enough chocolate in the heart to cover the bottom.
  4. Then add 1 to 2 teaspoons of your peanut butter mixture on top of the chocolate.
  5. Cover your peanut butter with more melted chocolate until the heart is full.
  6. Stick in the refrigerator or freezer until hardened.
  7. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator until you are ready to eat them.
  8. If you have extra peanut butter filling you can roll them into 1 inch balls (not any larger).
  9. Stick the dough into the refrigerator until cool.
  10. Next dip them into the melted chocolate.
  11. Set the chocolate coated ball onto wax paper and cool.
  12. Keep in the refrigerator until you are ready to eat them.
  13. Makes about 12 hearts, but it really depends on the size of your mold.

    Yum!!! Chocolate in any shape is delish to me… thanks for the recipe, I will be making these for Valentine’s Day. Oh and you might want to check your local 99 cent or Dollar Tree stores for these heart shapes molds… because at $10 ea is a little much for my pockets. I found these at my local Dollar Tree just last week :) and actually… I pretty much see these every year at my local discount store. Just FYI.

    I’m so happy I found this! I too am on a budget this year and was looking for something adorable and handmade I could do. When I found these hearts and saw that you had used them for an inexpensive gift I knew I had to make them. I was lucky to get the last heart candy mold pan at Walmart (Jessie I wish I had seen your comment about the dollar store earlier! But I paid $3 for mine so not too bad). I just got done making them and popped them in the freezer, hopefully the s/o will love them tomorrow!

    When I made this my mixture wasn’t creamy like yours. It was dry and crumbly. Can you tell me what I did wrong? I followed the recipe but not sure what happened. :(
    Thanks for your help.

      Hi Elizabeth, we have never had a problem with the peanut butter center being dry. If you used exact measurements. Was your butter totally softened at room temp? Sorry it didn’t work out too well. We make these all the time and they are a family favorite. Be sure your measurements are exact. Too much powdered sugar or brown sugar could dry it out.
