I had no idea how easy it is to make homemade peanut butter cups until I saw some pics on design sponge and then read more on Martha Stewart. All you do is melt some chocolate, brush some into a cupcake wrapper, chill, add a peanut butter mix, and top with more melted chocolate and chill again. Both recipes mixed a bunch of sugar with their peanut butter and they also had some crispy element to add more texture. I didn’t want any crispy texture though, I wanted something more like a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup so I omitted that. Then I then had the inspiration to use Peanut Butter & Co’s White Chocolate Wonderful because it is sweet and unique tasting and already has sugar added so I could omit the mixing in sugar step. The result was the simplest decadent dessert I have ever made: no mixing, only one bowl, and I didn’t even have to turn the oven on or measure anything. Next time I think I will use more peanut butter and less chocolate, just barely covering the peanut butter on top.
They are really so amazing. I brought some to work for Valentine’s day and my coworker immediately said I should be selling them which I think I will try with the rest of my coworkers, “happy valentines day, I made you a treat 40 dollars please”.
Oh, FABULOUS. I have mini- cupcake tin liners that would be perfect for these.
Holy crap, I need to try this. You are a dessert star!!
Holy crap those look good!
Becky and I love saying holy crap 🙂
I was so tempted to make PB cups for Valentine’s Day, but I didn’t feel like cleaning up the mess. When I made them for Halloween I made such a mess of my kitchen! It was totally worth it though.
Your peanut butter cups are waaay more beautiful than mine ever are! Love them!
oh my gosh! it’s too early to be drooling over this!
What are you trying to do to me?
Those look insanely good!
