The Perfect Irresistible Valentine’s Day treat for your loved ones ~ keep some for yourself for snacking!
These chocolate peanut butter cups are super-simple to make, with just a few ingredients. Use the best quality chocolate ~ I like an extra dark type, although, yes – you can use milk chocolate if you desire (has a much higher sugar content.)
How to make:
Place mini fluted paper muffin (or candy) cups on a rimmed tray to fit.
Melt chocolate and spoon a layer on the bottom of the cups and up the sides; refrigerated.
Make the peanut butter filling.
Add a rounded teaspoon of filling onto the base of the chocolate shell.
Top with a layer of melted chocolate – done!
Chocolate Hearts: Place excess melted chocolate into a small baggie.
Snip a corner and pipe small chocolate hearts on to wax paper (on a tray.)
Add chopped peanuts on top of the hearts and refrigerate until hard.
Can also add a peanut half to the top of the chocolate layer on the peanut butter cup before chilling.
