31 Days of MOO No. 29 MOO Peanut Butter Cups


I was having a cuppa with Wendy a few weeks ago and she reminded me of these lovely little treats and just how much I like them. This recipe is a MOO on Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and having enjoyed the genuine treat it is a very good copy. The trick is to use a Kraft-style peanut butter. MOO peanut butter is too oily to make these delicious morsels, so splurge on a jar of commercial peanut butter (I use the Aldi PB and it's fine, and cheaper than Kraft).

MOO Peanut Butter Cups

Ingredients:
24 foil chocolate cups*
375g milk chocolate melts
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup icing sugar
1/4 tsp salt

Step 1. Melt the chocolate melts over a double boiler or in the microwave.

Step 2. Using a teaspoon, pour some chocolate into a foil cup and swirl around so it covers the entire inside of the foil chocolate cup. Repeat with the remaining foil cups. Put them in the fridge for the chocolate to set.

Step 3. Combine the peanut butter, icing sugar and salt in a bowl.

Step 4. When the chocolate cases have hardened, microwave the peanut butter mixture on half power for 30 seconds to soften.

Step 5. Using a teaspoon, spoon a small portion of the peanut butter into each chocolate cup. Leave room for another layer of chocolate. Chill until the peanut butter has hardened.

Step 6. Melt remaining chocolate. Spoon over the top of the peanut butter, making sure it is completely covered. Chill until firm.

*You'll find the small foil chocolate papers at kitchenware shops and in some supermarkets in the baking aisle with the cupcake papers etc. Spotlight and Lincraft sometimes keep them with the chocolate making supplies too.
