“REESE’S” PEANUT BUTTER CUPS

Oct 31, 2019 | desserts, snacks

These are tried, true and just amazing every single time. You can fill them with pretty well whatever you want. My favourite is peanut butter, but have also done with almond butter as well as date “caramel” (see recipe on my Instagram feed). If you want to do these festive (coloured) for a holiday, mix 2 parts natural peanut butter to 1 part powdered sugar and add any food colouring. The inside will be a fun colour and it comes out so cute.

These are so perfect for the holidays, which are just around the corner. To serve or to bring as a host gift!

Store them in an air tight container in the fridge. They’ll be good for a week or so, but I highly doubt they’ll last that long!

Enjoy!

Ingredients
  • approx 2 cups dark chocolate
  • approx 5 Tbsp peanut butter or almond butter
  • 28 mini cupcake liners (will double them up)
Instructions
  1. Double up mini cupcake liners and lay them out on a pan that will fit into your freezer. Mini muffin tins work great, but only if it will fit into your freezer! If not, you can use any small square or circular pan.
  2. Add 1/2 of chocolate to a double boiler and stir when it starts to melt. Optional: add 1 tsp vegetable oil to give chocolate a smooth appearance. When chocolate is fully melted and liquid, start spooning into your muffin liners. It should fill about 1/4 of the liner.
  3. Brush chocolate up side of liner with your spoon or a pastry brush so that chocolate covers most of the inside of liner.
  4. Add 1 tsp of peanut butter to each chocolate cup.
  5. Set aside and melt the remainder of the chocolate by repeating steps above.
  6. Fill the cups up to the top (or 3/4 of the way). Smooth out the tops with a spoon and place into refrigerator.
  7. When hard, you can add a sprinkle of sea salt on top if desired.
Recipe Notes

Store in refrigerator for up to 1 week or store in the freezer as long as you like!

For "festive" version (coloured centre): mix 2 parts natural peanut butter to 1 part powdered sugar. Add whichever food colouring you like until you achieve desired colour!
