I was craving something sweet tonight. And while I could have raided the boys' Halloween candy, I wanted something I would actually enjoy. I've had homemade peanut butter cups on my radar for awhile. So, tonight I tackled them and they were delicious!
Ingredients makes 12 homemade peanut butter cups
- 4 C semisweet chocolate chips or chunks
- 1/2 C organic creamy peanut butter
- 1/4 C organic powdered sugar
- 2 T butter, softened
Line a standard 12-cup muffin dish with paper liners. Melt and temper your chocolate in a double boiler.
Spoon 1 teaspoon of melted chocolate into each muffin cup. Place the pan in the freezer for 10 minutes. In the meantime, combine peanut butter, powdered sugar and butter. Blend until smooth.
Remove pan from freezer and top the chocolate layer with a small spoonful of the peanut butter mixture.
Smooth the peanut butter and top with another teaspoon of tempered chocolate. Place the pan in the freezer for 10 to 15 minutes. Serve chilled.
