These homemade peanut butter cups taste better than store-bought any day. So easy and you can experiment with different types of chocolate. Start off with just three simple ingredients, chocolate chips, chocolate bars, and peanut butter. A pantry dessert you can whip up anytime.
- semi-sweet chocolate chips.
- Cadbury Milk Chocolate candy bars.
- Peanut butter. For a fresh taste try making your own peanut butter in under 10 minutes.
- mini muffin liners
Start by melting the chocolate, if you don't have a microwave or just don't want to use it, it's still simple to melt the chocolate using a double boiler.
For the best shape, double or triple the paper liners to give more strength.
When spooning the first layer of chocolate, fill to ¼ depth. Gently shake the pan to even out the layer of chocolate.
When pouring the peanut butter you just want a thin layer otherwise the peanut butter will seep out over the top layer of chocolate.
Top the homemade peanut butter cups with the remaining chocolate and refrigerate until set.
If you're making these for food gifts, use pretty foil cups for a more festive look.
No photo of the finished product because we ate them before I had a chance to take the photograph! I guess I'll need to just make another batch.
