Do you nibble around the edges first? Do you gulp it quickly in two bites? If you can tell me in vivid detail how you eat Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, then these luscious chocolate–peanut butter pudding cups are especially for you. Made with half-and-half, a double dose of chocolate, and a dollop of creamy peanut butter, the flavor is intense and continues to blossom as it chills in the refrigerator. Rich and thick enough to stand your spoon in, these chocolate–peanut butter cups are best eaten in small doses. For a softer texture, make the pudding with whole milk instead of half-and-half.–Jill O’Connor
LC Cups Not Included Note
Those cute little chocolate cups in the photo above? They’re not included in the recipe, we’re sorry to say. But actually, they’re not necessary. Not at all. One might even say that though they’re a clever vessel, they’re something of a distraction from the goodness at hand. One taste of this pudding and we think you’ll understand what we mean.

This peanut butter chocolate pudding is as rich and thick as promised, filled with chocolaty-peanut buttery goodness. The whipped cream may seem like gilding the lily, but it’s a good flavor contrast to the thickness of the pudding. I made the pudding with half-and-half but would probably try milk next time since I like a slightly looser pudding. I really appreciated the author’s description of the bubbling hot lava; it was a great visual aid. It should also be noted that this recipe is for the pudding only and not for the chocolate cups pictured. Overall, this was a crowd-pleaser for children and adults.
