Peanut Butter Cups

Now, I do not want to say that this is a perfect recipe. Peanut butter cups should probably be made with some sort of milk chocolate, but I took what my pantry had to offer; dark cooking chocolate. It still got thumbs up from my test panel so I therefore choose to share my version with you.

Serves ca 25 pcs | Time needed  ~ 20 min

200 g cooking chocolate ( or milk chocolate)
2 tsp coconut fat
200 g peanut butter
30 g icing sugar
1/2 tsp salt

  1. Line mini-muffin forms on a tray.
  2. Melt the chocolate and the coconut fat in a double boiler or in the microwave.
  3. Using a tea spoon, add chocolate to each muffin form. You should use up approximately half of the melted chocolate.
  4. Chill the forms by putting the tray in the refrigerator for 10 minutes so that the chocolate hardens.
  5. Meanwhile, put peanut butter and salt in a saucepan and warm the mass up without melting it. Add the icing sugar and stir well.
  6. Place a teaspoon of the peanut butter mixture on top of each chocolate layer.
  7. Spoon the rest of the melted chocolate over the peanut butter in each form.
  8. Refrigerate so it all hardens a bit.
  9. Enjoy.
