Peanut Butter Cups Recipe
1 1/2 lbs. semi-sweet or bittersweet
chocolate Or 1 pkg. chocolate cups and 1/2 lb. chocolate
6 oz. semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate, chopped
2 C. creamy peanut butter
Melt 1 lb. chocolate and make your own chocolate cups, using mini paper cups that you will cover with chocolate, let set, smooth rims, and then remove paper or you can cheat and buy the ready-made chocolate cups.
To make filling:
Melt the 6 oz. of chocolate, remove from heat and stir until smooth; let cool to warm room temperature. Add 2 cups of peanut butter and stir with wooden spoon until thoroughly blended. Spoon the filling into a sturdy resealable plastic bag and snip off the tip of one corner. Pipe the peanut butter-chocolate filling into the chocolate cups until it almost reaches the rims. Tap the cups lightly to release any air bubbles. Let the peanut butter cups stand in a cool, dry place for about an hour or until set. The filling will be soft and creamy, but still hold its shape.
Melt remaining chocolate. Use a teaspoon and lightly coat the tops of the peanut butter mixture to seal. Tap the cups lightly to smooth chocolate slightly.
The peanut butter cups can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to a week.
