Peanut butter cup trials part 2

I’m on a peanut butter cup mission. I’m in search of the best PB cup recipe on the planet. I have a lot of work ahead of me.


I found this one on Pinterest and It came out pretty darn good. I had to tweak it a little by omitting/adding some of the ingredients to get it closer to my liking. Next time I think I will probably make a little extra chocolate and layer the chocolate on the bottom and top of the cup with PB in the center. These are very nutty and delicious. Give it a go!

Crunchy Peanut Butter Cups
Makes 8

1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup milk or dark chocolate chips
1/4 cup milk
Sea salt

Line a muffin tin with papers, I used a mini muffin tin which will yield more PB cups.

In a microwave safe bowl, melt the butter & peanut butter together for 35/40 seconds.  Stir until smooth.  Add sugar and mix to combine. Distribute mixture evenly between the prepared muffin cups.  Refrigerate for 15 minutes to set peanut butter layer.

Once your PB layer has chilled, combine chocolate and milk in a microwave safe bowl and heat in 25/30 second intervals, stirring until smooth.  Pour chocolate evenly over the top of the peanut butter layer.  Sprinkle sea salt on tops and chill until firm, about 30 minutes.  Store left overs covered in the fridge…. although you probably won’t have any. We ate them all in one day! Savages, I know.
