Peanut butter and chocolate, such a divine combination and probably one of my favorites and my husbands too. While it is season of cookie baking I feel like candy gets overlooked. This recipe for peanut butter cups is so incredibly easy, fast and is a great gift to bring to your host or hostess this holiday.
PEANUT BUTTER CUPS
1 cup all-natural creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup confectioners sugar
pinch of sea salt
16 ounces good quality semi-sweet chocolate, melted
stiff mini cupcake liners (like these or line a mini-muffin tin, but might need to do in batches)
Directions: Lay out mini muffin liners on a baking sheet. Add peanut butter, brown sugar, confectioners sugar and salt in a small bowl. Mix to combine. Melt chocolate in the microwave in a microwave safe bowl. Carefully pour about 1/2 inch of chocolate in the bottom the liners. Add 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons of peanut butter mixture on top. Finish by covering in chocolate. Chill in the refrigerator until set. Enjoy!
