Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

When I was little, I loved Hallowe'en. I mean, who wouldn't? Going out with friends and getting loads of candy? What's not to love? My favourite candy was peanut butter cups. I loved it when people gave them out, or even better, when they let you pick out of the bowl, because then I was GUARANTEED a pb cup. Seeing as they're my favourite, when I saw pictures of homemade ones, I knew I had to try it out.

Well, they were SO easy to make, and they turned out even better than the original (if that's even possible). I'd pick dark chocolate over milk chocolate any day, so these were right up my alley! They're so delicious, and so simple, you just have to try making them yourself. 

Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
Makes 12-15 peanut butter cups

  • 6 oz. dark or semisweet chocolate
  • 1/4 cup natural peanut butter
  • 2 Tbsp. icing sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
Line a mini muffin tin with paper liners. 

In a microwavable bowl, melt chocolate, stopping in 30 second intervals to stir. Brush some chocolate on the bottom and up the sides of the cups. Place in freezer to harden for about ten minutes.

Meanwhile, combine peanut butter, salt and sugar. Once chocolate is hard in cups, roll a bit of peanut butter mixture and flatten into cups. Cover with more chocolate, then refrigerate until ready to eat. 

Store in refrigerator, because the peanut butter cups can get rather melty.
