INGREDIENTS YOU WILL NEED FOR THE VIRAL MAGIC SHELL YOGURT CUP

You will need the following ingredients listed below to make these high protein peanut butter cup yogurt cups (the exact measurements and full recipe are in the printable recipe card at the bottom of the post):

  • Yogurt of choice – I used plain greek yogurt but vanilla yogurt or any dairy-free yogurt will also work great.
  • Creamy peanut butter – can use almond butter, cashew butter, or nut butter of choice.
  • Melted chocolate – I used melted dark chocolate but milk chocolate or white chocolate will both work as well. You only need about 1-2 tbsp of chocolate chips.
  • Peanuts
  • Flaky sea salt
  • Optional – protein powder, coconut oil, pure maple syrup, cookie dough chunks, caramel sauce, etc.

HOW TO MAKE

  1. Select Your Yogurt:
    • Choose your preferred yogurt flavor(s) for the base of your magic shell yogurt cup. You can opt for classic flavors like vanilla, strawberry, or blueberry, or experiment with more unique options like coconut, almond, or mango.
  2. Add Peanut Butter To Yogurt Cups:
    • Take your desired serving cups or bowls and fill them with your chosen yogurt flavors with peanut butter. Mix well.
  3. Melt Chocolate:
    • Melt dark chocolate chips or dark chocolate bar in microwave in 30-second intervals till smooth.
    • Carefully drizzle the chocolate sauce over the top of the yogurt. The sauce will start to harden once it comes into contact with the cold yogurt, creating a delightful chocolate hard shell.
  4. Add Your Toppings:
    • Sprinkle your peanuts or desired prepared toppings over the magic shell chocolate sauce while it’s still liquid. This allows the toppings to adhere to the chocolate shell and adds an extra burst of flavor and texture.
  5. Allow the Magic Shell to Set:
    • Let the magic shell chocolate sauce sit for a few moments, allowing it to harden completely. Then add to freezer for 15 minutes to completely solidify.
  6. Indulge in Your DIY Magic Shell Yogurt Cup:
    • Grab a spoon and dig into your homemade creation! Enjoy the contrast of creamy yogurt, crunchy chocolate shell, and a burst of flavors from the toppings. Each spoonful is a delightful combination of textures and tastes that will bring a smile to your face.

HOW TO STORE THE YOGURT CUP

  1. Refrigeration:
    • Once you’ve prepared your Magic Shell yogurt cups, place them in an airtight container or cover them tightly with plastic wrap.
    • Store the yogurt cups in the refrigerator to maintain their freshness.
    • They can typically be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. However, it’s best to consume them within the first couple of days for optimal taste and texture.
  2. Toppings:
    • If your yogurt cups contain fresh fruit toppings, it’s recommended to consume them within 1-2 days to ensure the fruit remains at its best quality.
    • Dry toppings like granola, nuts, or sprinkles can be stored separately in airtight containers and added to the yogurt cups just before serving. This helps to retain their crunchiness and prevent them from becoming soggy.

CAN I MAKE THE MAGIC SHELL YOGURT CUP AHEAD OF TIME?

A: Yes, you can make the yogurt cups ahead of time. Simply follow the instructions and store them in the refrigerator in an airtight container. However, for the best texture and flavor, it’s recommended to add the Magic Shell chocolate sauce and toppings just before serving.

CAN I USE DIFFERENT FLAVORS OF YOGURT?

A: Absolutely! Feel free to experiment with different yogurt flavors to create a variety of Magic Shell yogurt cups. Mix and match flavors to suit your taste preferences and enjoy the endless flavor combinations.

You can also add different toppings like fresh strawberries or rainbow sprinkles instead of peanuts.

CAN I USE NON-DAIRY YOGURT?

Instead of a half of a cup of greek yogurt you can absolutely substitute for non-dairy yogurts such as coconut milk yogurt or almond milk yogurt. This is a great vegan option as long as you’re using dairy-free chocolate as well.
