Quiz time! Answer yes or no to these questions: Do you like chocolate? Do you like peanut butter? If you answered yes to both of those questions than I have the perfect recipe for you! (I sound like a sales ad! haha)
Years ago while I was in business school I worked part time as a church secretary (no lie!). One year around Easter time I noticed, and smelled, the little old ladies from the church concocting something in the kitchen. Being nosy and hungry I wondered down to the kitchen to see what was brewing. What I found was them making these home made chocolate peanut butter cups. After hanging around and sampling a few they invited me to help make some. These are beyond yummy and so easy it's not right. I used to pour these into tiny little paper cups like the church ladies did but one time when I was out of the cups I tried it in a pan and it works just as great.
Here's the recipe:
1-14ounce bag of dark chocolate melts (find at local craft store)
1-14ounce bag of white or light coca chocolate melts (find at local craft store)
1-18ounce jar of peanut butter (creamy or smooth)
What to do:
-Pour all ingredients in a pan and constantly stir over low-medium heat till melted and smooth.
-Then transfer to a wax lined cookie sheet or cake pan.
-Or pour into individual candy molds or cups
-Place in refrigerator or freezer till solid and hard. If in one pan-score and cut into small pieces.
My family loves these little candies...my nephew is always begging for me to make them. This time I tried them with crunch peanut butter and love it just as much! I hope you all enjoy :)
This weekend I'll be busy with family-celebrating my nephew's 5th birthday. So sad how fast time goes, but its fun to see them grow in to little adults :) Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
