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.
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.
