So, I haven't gotten to try them yet, but I'm pretty sure I didn't mess them up. Hehe. ...So here's the recipe:
Peanut Butter Cups
- 12 ounces of Semi Sweet Chocolate Morsels
- 1 cup Peanut Butter
- 1/2 cup Powdered Sugar
- 3/4 teaspoon Salt
First thing that you'll need to do is melt your chocolate. If you're using a microwave, like I did, just pour your bag of chocolate chips into a bowl and then microwave at 15 second intervals, stirring each time, until melted.
Something that I did that really helped, was afterward, I took the next larger sized bowl in my mixing bowls and poured in about 1 1/2 cup water and then microwaved for 2 minutes to get hot. Then, I placed the bowl of chocolate inside this bowl, to keep the chocolate from hardening.
Next, I put all the cupcake cups into my muffin pan. Once I had that done, I began to spoon chocolate into the cups. Once I had all the cups done, I used a Mini Tart Shaper from Pampered Chef to push down the chocolate so it created more of a cup shape.
Next I put the whole tray in the fridge.
While the chocolate was hardening in the refrigerator, I prepared the peanut butter insides. You combine the rest of the ingredients (peanut butter, powdered sugar, and salt) in a bowl. This was the hardest part, because the powdered sugar didn't want to mix with the peanut butter, but just keep working at it.
When that was done, I took the muffin pan back out of the fridge. (The remaining chocolate is still sitting in a bowl of hot water). I spooned a good amount of peanut butter mixture into each cup. Once I was done with that, I smooshed (Yes, smooshed...) the chocolate down the the Mini Tart Shaper.
Finally, I took spoonfuls of melted chocolate and poured onto the top of each cup. In order to help it get flat, I would take the cups out and then just tilt it from side to side and what-not to cover the cups.
Then I put the entire tray back in the fridge for the night (where it is now). I'll make sure to let everyone know how they turn out!!
I hope you enjoy!
