In the world of crazy food combinations, we’ve just stumbled upon a dish that will make you rethink desserts that are sweet and savoury. While it is hard to believe that such a combination can ever exist, but baked-beans-filled chocolate cups have been doing the rounds on social media, and are surprisingly delicious.

Created by The Vulgar Chef, @thevulgarchef, Beanut-Butter Cups, much like its name, are a silent ode to the crowd favourite, Reese’s peanut butter cups, but instead of delicious peanut butter, you end up biting into some canned baked beans. While some people call it worse than putting pineapple on pizza, many agreed that the slight sweetness of the beans perfectly complemented the chocolate filling.

So, before you pass your final judgement, we would suggest you try this super easy recipe out. Here is how you can make the Tik-Tok famous Beanut-Butter Cups.

You Will Need:

  • ¾ Cup Chocolate Chips
  • ¼ Cup Baked Beans
  • Small Cup Silicone Mould Tray


Step 1: Melt ⅖ cup of your chocolate chips in the microwave for about 20-40 seconds. Once they’re melted, stir with a spoon until the consistency is smooth.

Step 2: Now, fill the silicone cup mould tray with a little bit of the melted chocolate. Use the back of a small spoon and spread the chocolate on the bottom and the sides of each cup in the tray. Place the tray in the freezer for about 20 minutes until the chocolate turns hard.

Step 3: Once the chocolate base layer is hard, add a spoon of baked beans to each cup. Once you have added the beans, place the tray in the freezer again until they become hard.

Step 4: Melt the remaining chocolate chips in the microwave for the same amount of time. Once your cups have hardened, remove the tray and spread the chocolate on the top to cover the cups. Finally, freeze them for one last time and once they’re ready, enjoy!
