Peanut Butter Cup Dip

Peanut Butter Cup Dip needs to be at your next party!! You will love this easy recipe!

This is one of my most popular recipes so I wanted to update it for the holidays! This post was originally published in 2015. 

A few weeks ago we hosted a fun basketball party. We had tons of great food, including my favorite Mini Macaroni and Cheese Bites, and for dessert, I wanted to make a sweet dip that people could pick on as they finished their meal.

I had some Mini Peanut Butter Cups leftover from another recipe and I knew they would be the perfect base for a delicious chocolate and peanut butter dip.  A few years ago, I made a Peanut Butter Cheeseball and Ryan and I embarrassingly ate the entire thing and I have been wanting to make a dip version for years. It is no secret that I love the peanut butter and chocolate combination. I have posted so many recipes with that combo and I don’t see me stopping anytime soon! It is truly my favorite, and I would eat it all.the.time. if my waistline allowed!

I served Wheat Thins, pretzels, and graham sticks with this dip and I actually think that the pretzels and Wheat Thins went better with it because the salty went so well with the sweet. You could try any dipper that you like though!

You need to try this Peanut Butter Cup Dip soon! If you are having a get together, this would be a great dip to put on for people to munch on. Or after Easter or Halloween, when you have leftover PB cups…this would be perfect to throw together for a special dessert for your family to snack on!

    1. Yes, it is so different than your typical cheesy dips, which I love!

    1. Yes it definitely does! Which is a good problem because then you don’t eat it all yourself!

    1. We have similar blog names, great minds must think alike! 🙂

  1. I am a peanut butter fiend, so this looks just amazing to me! I can definitely see this going well with a whole wheat Ritz cracker, because the salt would pair so nicely with the sweet.

  2. You had me a peanut butter cup… and then again at dip…
    Thank you so much for sharing this! Then again, I was not super pleased with my weigh-in at the doctor today, so maybe I shouldn’t thank you.
