Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

I love all things chocolate and peanut butter, so when I really fancy a sweet treat this is my go to recipe!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup

I always make sure I use the best ingredients however so make sure you get yourself some high quality chocolate and peanut butter before undertaking this recipe.

This recipe makes 25 mini cups, each coming in at 90 calories.

Melt the chocolate in a bowl over some hot water. Once melted place some of the chocolate in the case and circle the case so some of the chocolate runs upwards inside the case. Once done keep the remaining chocolate over the bowl of hot water to keep it melted.

Mix all the remaining ingredients together in a bowl until stiff – add more icing sugar if required.

Once mixed make up 24 balls and slightly flatten. I popped the balls on a plate that had been dusted with a little icing sugar so they didn’t stick.

Once complete insert the balls into the cases.

After that use the remaining chocolate to cover the peanut balls completely.

Leave to cool and if you like once the chocolate starts setting sprinkle with a little sea salt – honestly chocolate and sea salt tastes amazing!

Leave to fully set and then serve!

One cup really does do the trick! Although I tend to make and dish them out to family and friends so I don’t give in to too much temptation!
