You may love store-bought varieties of peanut butter cups, but once you taste these homemade ones, you will never go back! Made with rich dark chocolate, they are oozing with an irresistable flavor that will leave you wanting more.
Makes: 24 pieces
What You Need:
3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
15 oz. dark ground chocolate, chopped
1 cup icing or confectioners sugar
2 tbsps. butter
What To Do:
It is fairly simple to create these delicious cups of goodness, which makes it all the better to enjoy.
Start by mixing together the peanut butter, sugar and butter in a mixer until smooth and well incorporated. Then divide into 24 evenly sized balls and set aside.
Now onto the chocolate! Melt the chopped chocolate until smooth over medium heat, be sure to stir it constantly. Take the chocolate off the heat once it is done and coat the inside of mini paper muffin liners with the chocolate using a spoon. Try to get as close to the top of the liners as possible. Once all 24 liners have chocolate, place them in the freezer for 10 minutes.
When they are cold and hardened, remove the chocolate coated liners from the freezer and place a peanut butter ball inside of each one, making them fit around the chocolate if needed.
Then, using a spoon, carefully spoon the remaining warm chocolate over the top of the peanut butter balls and then place back in the freezer for 30 minutes or until they are completely set.
These treats can be kept in the freezer for up to 4 weeks. Enjoy!
