Melted-chocolate-1zdpyjs

QUICK & EASY

Peanut Butter Cups!!

 

I remember as a little girl making these with my Aunt Gail.

I loved making them but remember most of all getting to try them out and hoping

there was an extra one for me to eat being that I helped to make them

    and knowing there were 4-5 other boys in the house who wanted an extra one too!!

I love this recipe as it is my kind of baking. Quick & easy and there is no possible way to ruin them!!

You can’t mess anything up by adding to much Chocolate or to much Peanut Butter can you?

These Peanut Butter cups are delicious, however they don’t taste like your traditional Reeses

because they use all milk chocolate. This recipe calls for a both Milk and Semi Sweet Chips.

1/2 cup (125 grams) creamy peanut butter

2 tablespoons (28 grams) unsalted butter, room temperature

Chocolate Coating

9 ounces (255 grams) semi sweet chocolate, coarsely chopped

9 ounces (255 grams) milk chocolate, coarsely chopped

Place the peanut butter, unsalted butter, and salt in a microwaveable bowl, and heat in the microwave for about one minute or just until soft, but not melted (check and stir the ingredients every 20 seconds). Stir in the confectioners sugar.

Melt the chocolate chips and shortening in a stainless steel bowl placed over a saucepan of simmering water.
