These Viral Monster Cookie Oat Cups are a Peanut Butter Lover's Dream
Have you seen those Monster Cookie Oat Cups taking the internet by storm? Created by food blogger Fit Foodie Finds, this recipe combines layers of peanut butter, chocolate and candy for a fun snack that's both satisfying and easy to make. As a huge fan of peanut butter treats, I had to try making these viral cups for myself.
The Appeal of the Monster Cookie Oat Cups
What makes these oat cups so appealing is that they deliver big peanut butter flavor in a cute, bite-sized package. The base is made with quick-cooking oats, peanut butter and honey for texture and sweetness. This is then filled with a layer of chocolate and topped with more peanut butter mixed with M&Ms. Baking them forms the cups which can then be filled, topped and chilled until set.
Having the layers like this allows you to enjoy different flavors and textures with each bite. The oat base provides crunch, while the smooth chocolate and creamy peanut butter complement each other wonderfully. And of course, who doesn't love the fun candy element that the M&Ms add? It's the perfect balance of flavors and an incredibly shareable treat.
Making the Viral Monster Cookie Oat Cups Recipe
The recipe itself is quite simple to put together. You start by mixing the dry oat layer ingredients of oats, honey and peanut butter until a dough-like consistency forms. Scoop this onto a baking sheet to form small cups. Then you'll melt chocolate and coconut oil to create the middle layer, spooning it into the oat cups.
The peanut butter layer is just peanut butter, coconut oil and mini M&Ms stirred together. Top each oat cup with this before sprinkling on extra mini chocolate chips. Chill until set before enjoying! Baking the oat base gives it structure to hold the fillings without being too sweet on their own.
Tips for Baking the Perfect Monster Cookie Oat Cups
When making these for the first time, here are a few tips to ensure your oat cups turn out great:
- Use a small cookie scoop or tablespoon to evenly portion out the oat dough.
- Make sure to press the dough firmly into the baking sheet so the cups hold their shape.
- Let each layer set in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before adding the next to prevent smudging.
- For a neater finish, use a small spoon or spatula to level out the peanut butter layer.
- Chill thoroughly before serving to allow the flavors to blend.
Enjoying the Fruits of Your Labor!
Once those Monster Cookie Oat Cups have set nicely in the fridge or freezer, it's time to dig in! I found they tasted even better the next day after all the flavors had a chance to meld together. The combination of peanut butter, chocolate and candy is incredibly satisfying whether having just one or a few for a guilt-free sweet treat. It's easy to see why the recipe has garnered millions of views - these oat cups are a peanut butter lover's dream.
