With a few simple ingredients and minimal effort, you can create frozen peanut butter cups that will leave everyone craving for more.
- Yogurt: Any variety of full-fat yogurt works, including Greek yogurt.
- Peanut butter: Creamy or crunchy peanut butter works in this recipe so use whatever you have in your pantry. Or, sub in your go-to nut butter! Almond butter, cashew butter, sunflower butter or hazelnut butter would be delicious.
- Milk: For the creamiest consistency I recommend using whole milk. However, any variety of milk or plant-based milk will work. Keep in mind that the texture may not be as creamy.
- Sugar: You can reduce the amount of sugar or even substitute it with a sweetener of your choice, such as honey, maple syrup or a sugar substitute like stevia. Keep in mind that altering the sweetener may affect the overall taste and texture of the frozen yogurt.
- Magic Shell chocolate sauce or other melted chocolate: The chocolate coating adds a decadent touch but it’s completely optional. You can use Magic Shell chocolate sauce or melt your favorite chocolate. If you prefer a different coating, you can try white chocolate, dark chocolate or even caramel sauce. Be creative and use your favorite flavors!
- Optional garnishes: I’m all about crushed salted peanuts as a garnish, but the options are endless. From crushed Oreos and M&Ms to shredded coconut and sprinkles, get creative with all of your favorite sundae toppings.

- Chocolate swirl: Create a marbled effect by swirling chocolate sauce into the mixture before pouring it into the popsicle molds. Use a skewer or toothpick to gently swirl the chocolate throughout the mixture, creating beautiful patterns.
- Peanut butter banana: Add a twist by incorporating mashed ripe bananas into the yogurt and peanut butter mixture.
- Nuts: For an extra crunch, stir in some chopped nuts, such as almonds, cashews or peanuts.
- Chocolate-coated: Instead of just dipping the finished popsicles in chocolate, you can go all out and coat the entire popsicle in melted chocolate. Once the popsicles are frozen, carefully dip them into melted chocolate, allowing the excess to drip off. Place them back in the freezer to harden and you’ll have indulgent chocolate-covered peanut butter popsicles.
Making peanut butter frozen yogurt is incredibly easy. Here are the simple steps to create yogurt popsicles:
- Mix the base. In a large bowl, whisk together the yogurt, peanut butter, milk, vanilla extract and sugar.
- Fill the molds. Divide the mixture into popsicle molds and insert popsicle sticks.
- Freeze. Freeze the pops until frozen solid, at least 4 hours.
- Add the finishing touches. Once the pops have frozen, wiggle them loose and enjoy them immediately, or jazz things up with a quick dunk in melted chocolate (or Magic Shell) and follow it up with a shower of crushed, salted peanuts for a bit of crunch in every bite.
- Serve immediately and enjoy!
Pro Tip: Go for any shape or size when it comes to forming these pops. Don’t own a popsicle mold? No problem! Use small paper (or plastic) cups for easy cleanup.
- Use Full-Fat Yogurt: Opt for full-fat yogurt as it will provide a creamier and richer texture to your frozen yogurt.
- Freeze Properly: Allow sufficient time for the frozen yogurt to freeze completely. It usually takes around 6 hours. I like letting them freeze overnight.
