Peanut Butter Cups

Recipes

It's the holiday season, and what kind of holidays would they be without a little sweetness. Try this delicious peanut butter cup recipe by HIF food master Helen from ScrummyLane.com. According to Helen, "This is the easiest way to make peanut butter cups ...with only 3 tasty ingredients (milk chocolate, white chocolate & peanut butter). You can also pile them into a glass jar, and you'll have the perfect last-minute Christmas gift too!" . We hope you enjoy!


Ingredients 

  • 50 grams/2 ounces white chocolate
  • ½ a cup peanut butter (smooth or crunchy – I like crunchy)
  • 320 grams/11 ounces milk or dark chocolate (your choice!)
  • a handful roasted salted peanuts, chopped (I used a small food processor)
  • 10 cupcake wrappers

Instructions

  1. Break up the white chocolate into pieces and melt it in a bowl together with the peanut butter. You can do this in the microwave in 30-second spurts (I find 3 x 30 seconds is about right) or in a glass bowl set over a pan of simmering water*.
  2. Stir the peanut butter and white chocolate mixture together well and set aside.
  3. Now melt the milk/dark chocolate in a separate bowl in the same way as described above.
  4. Line a cupcake/muffin tin with cupcake wrappers, and spoon a teaspoon of milk/dark chocolate into each. Then spoon a teaspoon of the white choc/peanut butter mixture on top. Freeze the whole tray for about five minutes.**
  5. Spoon another teaspoonful of milk/dark chocolate into each cupcake case and smooth it over a little so that it covers the peanut butter layer. Finally, sprinkle a pinch of nuts over each cup.

Notes

*Freezing after the white choc and peanut butter layer helps the top layer to go on more cleanly.
 

Enjoy!
