This Homemade Peanut Butter Cup Coffee Creamer will liven up your morning coffee! Because what is better than coffee, chocolate and peanut butter?
Ahhhhh, you guys. I did this. It is sooo indulgent. I weaned myself off of coffee creamer a few years ago and started to make my own flavored syrups, like THIS triple vanilla syrup, THIS lavender one and THIS Autumn Spice one. And then I recently saw an ad for Peanut Butter Cup Creamer. What!?! My eyes widened and I thought to myself “I must have it!”. But then I thought “But I don’t use creamer anymore 😭” AND THEN I thought “Why don’t I try to make some?”. Bingo.

I thought making this peanut butter cup creamer would be easy. I chopped up a few peanut butter cups, threw them in some half and half and thought I was good to go. The flavor was there when I tasted it on its own, but got lost once it was in the coffee. So I had to try a few things before I was happy with the flavor. Since peanut butter and chocolate are my favorite flavor combo EVER, I had to get it right. If that meant buying millions of peanut butter cups (and eating half of them) that was the sacrifice I was willing to make. You’re welcome.
What we end up with is a creamy, peanut buttery, chocolatey creamer that makes your morning coffee that much better. So what do you think, peanut butter in coffee, yes/no? I say yes.

Hi just wondering if heavy whipping cream will work? Have you tried
Hi I haven’t tried it but I think it would be fine. The heavy cream will make it richer and thicker.

Hi Megan. Reese’s creamer is the only one I use, and now it’s been discontinued! I’ve tried making my own with other people’s recipes to no avail. They just don’t live up to the hype. Your’s is the only one I have found that uses actual peanut butter cups. I’m headed to the store right now to grab the supplies. Sooo excited!!
Yay, can’t wait to hear what you think!

When did it get discontinued?Is it just temporary?Why would they do this to me,it’s my favorite.

Oh man. Chocolate and peanut butter with coffee? It sounds divine. I can’t wait.
I do have one suggestion, definitely try this with a good smooth medium roast.
The best way to find smooth coffee is to search the internet for “smooth coffee”, or “smoothest coffee”, or “smooth coffee beans”.
Why is Reese’s the only brand that makes a peanut butter creamer?!
This looks good but i’m going to try pb fit (dried peanut butter) and various creamers.
Great, let us know how it turns out!

I have tried the store bought kind and OMG amazing!!! Since I ran out I have tried to make my own by just adding a spoonful of peanut butter to my coffee. it takes the edge off. 😂 can I store this in the original container I bought the liquid creamers in? Or does it have to be glass jars with lids?
Hi Bethanie – Yay, so glad you are trying this! I think it would be fine to store it in the original creamer container. Just be sure it is cooled before you put it in the container so it doesn’t melt the plastic 🙂
Your version is leaps and bounds better than the store bought!
Yay! That is the best thing to hear. Thank you so much!

I can’t wait to try making this, it sounds amazing!

Meghan!! I keep seeing this creamer all over the place and every time I do I have to stop and drool. I want to make a batch and just drink it straight from the carafe. 😉
Hah! Thanks Tracy! It is really tempting to drink straight, tbh 😂
oh my word, this is EVERYTHING. i have a girlfriend who has been hunting down the version on the shelves ever since it came out with no avail
Yay! Did you end up trying it?
Rachel c. says
I wonder if this will work with non dairy options… ie coconut or almond milks. I need to try it!
Hi Rachel – I’m sure it would, but it will probably be less creamy. If I were to try it, I would go with almond milk, to take advantage of the nutty flavor (I feel like the coconut milk would change the flavor). Let me know how it goes!
Good afternoon, I am soooo happy to have run across this recipe. Thank you very much. How losing does this last in the fridge.? Thank you
Hi Vikki, I have kept mine 1-2 weeks. It will depend a bit on how fresh the half and half that you use is.

Gah you’re some kind of genius!! I don’t even drink coffee, but I had to come here and leave a comment. I loooooove Reese’s cups and peanut butter in general. This is so clever. If I drank coffee, I’d be ALL OVER this.
It took all my willpower not to drink ti straight. 😂😂😂
I’ll bet it would be amazing in hot chocolate too!
Yes, that sounds so good!

Ahhh, you are going to win the best friend ever award! I actually have been looking for it because I wanted to do a comparison but I can’t find it anywhere either! Thanks Jess!

I was curious what kind of creamer you were working on when I saw your Instagram story! Your sacrifice of time (and Reese’s peanut butter cups) is greatly appreciated 😍
You are so welcome, it’s just what I do for my readers 😄. Thanks Meg!
