Peanut Butter Cups ....

3084me, Jun 9, 9:36pm
I have just discovered Reeses peanut butter cups **YUM! ! ! ! ** and was wondering if they would be easy to make at home?

Would I just need to melt down some cooking chocolate, spread a lather of peanut butter on it (once set of course) and then melt some more cooking chocolate to put on top? or would it be more involved than that?

TIA

You need to add some icing sugar to the peanut butter.

I had a dabble with making these a month or so ago.

I used peanut butter, a small amount of sugar, Whittakers Chocolate and ground up wine biscuits.

It's not hard, but it is slow making these...

ohh they look yum! !

Didyou mix in the blender the peanut butter, wine biscuits and sugar? -- do I use Icing sugar or normal sugar?

Where did you buy the lip balm amastrader ? They would make a perfect stocking filler for someone near and dear.

What I did...

Melt choc in a double boiler,
In a food processor, grind the bikkies till it's dust.

Spoon Peanut butter into bikkies with a little sugar.
Mix well.

Line cupcake paper with choc. Fridge for ten mins.
Spoon mixture into choc shell and drizzle on more choc for the tops.

Chill. Store in the freezer until you're peckish.
