  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar, measured then sifted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 11 oucnes dark, semi, or milk chocolate
  • coarse salt, optional


  • Make the filling - to start, you'll beat the butter and peanut butter together until smooth. Next, add the powdered sugar, vanilla and salt. Mix until combined. You'll notice the mixture resembles cookie dough.
  • Freeze the filling - on a parchment lined baking sheet, roll out the peanut butter filling, about 1/2 inch thick. Freeze the filling for about 20 to 30 minutes. The colder the filling, the easier it will be to dip into chocolate
  • Melt the chocolate - in a microwave safe bowl or over a double boiler, melt the chocolate.
  • Cut out the hearts - once the filling is frozen, cut out the mini hearts.
  • Dip the filling - dip each heart into the chocolate and shake off the excess chocolate. If desired, sprinkle coarse salt on top.
  • Let cool - let the chocolates cool and set completely before serving.
