I love Christmas baking and I’m sure many other people do too. I enjoy making delicious treats and feasting on them afterwards. Today I was experimenting to make my own chocolate peanut butter cups and I thought I’d share it with you!
I’m sorry that I don’t have pictures for everything; I only realized🤔 I should put this on the blog when I was half-way through the second batch.
This batch will make about twelve cups, but they’re so good😍 you’ll probably need to make more!
Here are the supplies needed:
- Chocolate wafers (or ‘shingles’ as my family calls them)
- Peanut butter (I used Kraft brand, but most kinds should work fine)
- Vanilla extract
- A stove
- A small saucepan
- Some spoons and other stirring things
- Mini-muffin papers
- A mini-muffin pan
- Probably a bowl or two
Place the papers in the muffin pan.
Melt the chocolate wafers on the stove with the burner on 4.
Once melted to a liquid-like consistency, pour some chocolate in each muffin paper. Don’t fill it to the top; just pour a little bit in and use a spoon to cover the sides and bottom of the papers.
Mix 2 large spoonfuls of peanut butter and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla together in a bowl. Spoon 1 teaspoon of the peanut butter mixture into the papers.
Melt more chocolate if you need to and wait for it to cool a little before filling the cups the rest of the way with chocolate. Smooth down the top if needed and put it in the fridge (or ‘refridge’ as I call it)
(Yes, I am using a different colour of chocolate now😜. I ran out of the regular colour.)
Let harden and enjoy!!!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays,
