Two nights ago I started craving some peanut butter cups. The last time I made them was a year ago. It was high time that I made them again.
So yesterday I made peanut butter cups. They were so delicious! I am including my not-very-exact recipe here for you. Note that NONE of the measurements are exact.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
For the peanut butter filling:
3/4 c. peanut butter
1/4 tsp. powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. honey
splash of vanilla
For the chocolate:
3+ c. of chocolate chips
Line a cupcake pan with paper liners.
Mix the peanut butter, powdered sugar, honey, and vanilla, adding the sugar and honey a little at a time and tasting occasionally (you don’t want it to be too sweet).
Melt the chocolate. Put about a tablespoon of chocolate in each cup. Swirl the pan to even the chocolate out.
Take about a tablespoon or slightly less of peanut butter and form it into a sort of a flat disk-the peanut butter may be gooey, so this may not quite be possible. Place in the middle of the chocolate. Spoon remaining chocolate over peanut butter (about 3 tablespoons each). Swirl pan to even the chocolate out. If desired, use a spoon to add a decorative swirl to the top of each one.
Refrigerate until hard. Be careful when you take your first bite – they are quite hard! Enjoy!
