Chocolate and peanut butter – what a heavenly combination! And the best way to savour this divine blend of flavours is to make a Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup! So, instead of craving a Reese’s, why not follow this simple cakewalk of a recipe that takes less than 30 minutes to make!
Two ingredients – Chocolate and Peanut Butter. That’s it.
Very Important Tips
- USING AN ALUMINIUM CUP IS EASIER
An aluminium cup can be cut into, which makes it easier to de-mold the chocolate cup. A silicone or paper cup can also be used, except it would be tougher to work with a thin paper cup. Ultimately, it’s up to you to decide whichever is available and works best for you.
- MAKING THE ‘PERFECT’ CHOCOLATE LAYER
The only thing to keep in mind while making these cups is to make sure that the chocolate layer covering the sides of the mold is thin enough to taste good, but thick enough to be able to take out easily without breaking.
For 1 serving
– 1/2 cup of chocolate
– 1 tablespoon of peanut butter
- Melt the chocolate in 10 second intervals. It took me about 40 seconds to melt it, but everyone’s microwave performs differently.
- Take a clean aluminium, silicone or paper cup. Pour the melted chocolate into the cup. Make sure to cover the base and sides of the cup with the right amount of chocolate (go to Very Important Tips).
- Put a spoonful of peanut butter on top of the chocolate.
Optional: You can also add powdered sugar (about 2 tsp) to the peanut butter to give it more of a Reese’s flavour.
- Cover the peanut butter with another layer of chocolate on top.
- Refrigerate the chocolate cup (mine took just 5 mins to solidify).
Enjoy the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup and share it with all your friends! This is a simple yet great way to recreate the good ol’ Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
Until next time:)
