chocolate peanut butter cups.

Do you love Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups as much as I do? If so, then you have to try my easy recipe for homemade mini chocolate peanut butter cups.  They make great holiday treats!

(yep, these 4 ingredients are all you need)

(filling the cups is a breeze with a squeeze bottle)

(they look like the real deal, no?)

(tip: display the finished product on a Christmas tree tray)

Ingredients:

  • 320 g dark chocolate chips
  • 200 g peanut butter (I use creamy but you could also use crunchy), room temperature
  • 2 g salt
  • 50 g powdered sugar

Directions:

  1. Line a mini muffin tray (I use a tray like this) with paper liners.
  2. Melt half of the chocolate chips in the microwave on medium heat (this should take approximately 1.5-2 minutes…be sure to stir the chocolate about 1/2 way through).
  3. Fill the liners with the melted chocolate about halfway full making sure to coat the sides of the cups.  This can be done easily with a small spoon.  Place the tray of cups into the refrigerator to cool and harden.
  4. While the cups are cooling, mix the peanut butter, salt and powdered sugar in a medium sized bowl.
  5. Transfer the mixture to a squeeze bottle and divide the mix into the prepared cups.
  6. Melt the remaining chocolate and either transfer to a squeeze bottle or spoon over the cups making sure to spread the chocolate to the edges (I use a bottle and then a spoon to smooth out the tops).
  7. Place in the fridge until chocolate is firm.
  8. Eat and enjoy!

Yields about 24+ mini cups.
