I hate processed food & candy so when I can recreate something that is usually bought at the store, I jump at the chance! Tommy’s sweet tooth has been active lately and I thought I would make one of his favorite sweets for in his bag lunches everyday. I also needed a mental break from the business planning…so its either running or baking and I already ran today…soooo…baking it was! I found these in my Everyday Food Magazine and they were a huge hit! Here’s the recipe!
4 ounces white chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
12 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, chopped
2 tablespoons unsalted roasted peanuts, chopped
- Line two 12-cup mini muffin pans with paper liners; set aside. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine white chocolate and peanut butter. Microwave, until almost melted, 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, stirring halfway through. Set aside to cool slightly.
- Meanwhile, place semisweet chocolate in another microwave-safe bowl. Microwave, stirring once or twice, until almost melted, 2 to 3 minutes.
- Dividing evenly, use a spoon to layer semisweet chocolate and peanut-butter mixture into liners, beginning and ending with chocolate; sprinkle with peanuts.
- Place muffin pans in freezer until peanut butter cups are firm, about 15 minutes. Bring to room temperature before serving.
