Peanut Butter Cups

Well, most of you might remember Reese’s when you hear “Peanut Butter Cups”, You can actually do it at home! Ingredients are easily found in the grocery. Here’s how we do it:

INGREDIENTS: 

  • 16 oz semisweet chocolate
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 and 2 tbsp confectioner’s sugar, sifted

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Line a standard muffin tin with paper cupcake liners.
  2. Melt half the chocolate either in a double boiler (or you can do it the microwave way)
  3. Distribute the melted chocolate into the muffin, only barely filling the bottom of each cup. Place the pan in the freezer for 15 minutes
  4. Meantime, whip the peanut butter, butter and confectioner’s sugar together with a hand mixer until mixed and light. You can taste it to make sure the sweetness is to your liking.
  5. Place small tablespoons of peanut butter to each cup, drop the pan to flatten out the peanut butter layer. Place in the freezer for 15 minutes.
  6. Melt again the last half of chocolate and portion small spoonfuls of chocolate into the cups to cover completely the peanut butter layer, immediately drop the pan each time you put chocolate melts to flatten each cups.
  7. Done! You can leave them at room temperature for a soft and creamy texture or you can refrigerate them for more bites. Enjoy!
