We had family over and I wanted to have a special treat out that they could snack on. I also wanted to have an Ice cream topper. Obviously by the title I picked Peanut Butter Cups!
It was simple and much cheeper than store bought. You can also make them any size you want!
Everyone liked them and I plan on making them frequently.
1 bag Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips
10 tbsp Natural Peanut Butter salted
1 tsp Optional coconut oil
(room in your freezer)
Makes 10 to 12
You can either melt your chocolate chips in a double broiler or in the microwave.
I did microwave, just heat up in small increments of time(2 minutes straight is too long)
Place chocolate chips in bowl and melt
Make sure chocolate is melted and stirred
Take a spoon and cover the bottom of each silicone cup making sure to get it up on the sides(you should only use 1/2 of the chocolate)
Place the cups in the freezer for 5 to 10 minutes (just make sure the chocolate is hard)
Optional: put coconut oil in the peanut butter (more so if you use natural PB) It will keep the peanut butter in a stiffer state
Place 1/2 tbsp to 1 tbsp of peanut butter depending your preference on PB chocolate ratio
Try and get the peanut butter to spread out and lay flat
Put back in the freezer for 5 min
Your chocolate should still be soft
With your spoon spread the rest of the chocolate on top of the peanut butter
Place in the freezer for a hour
You can keep in the fridge to keep the peanut butter stiffer if you want but you don’t have to.
