Peanut Butter Cups

A homemade version of my favourite Halloween candy, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. It’s really quick to make and taste amazing.

This year I didn’t go trick-or-treating or give out candy, but I was still craving some peanut butter cups. I made up this recipe and it only took me 20 minutes to make. I’ve seen people make this recipe with white chocolate as well so if you have a large sweet tooth, you can try that out. Personally that’s too sweet, so I just use a mix of milk and dark chocolate.

[ingredients]

  • 2 cups chocolate, melted
  • 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp butter, softened

[method]

  1. Melt 1/2 of the chocolate and spoon it evenly into cupcake liners, then place them into the freezer.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix the peanut butter, powdered sugar, and butter. Spoon a small dollop into the set chocolate then return the pan to the freezer.
  3. Melt the remaining chocolate and spoon it onto the set peanut butter layer. Place it in the freezer one last time to set.
  4. Serve right after taking them out of the freezer. They probably won’t stay set at room temperature as we didn’t temper the chocolate.
