Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Recipe


Peanut butter and chocolate is the ultimate combination. Chocolate peanut butter cups perfectly combine the sweet flavor of chocolate with the creamy nuttiness of peanut butter.

Peanut butter was first created in 1904 by Dr. John Kellogg. It was intended as a source of protein for patients who were unable to chew their food, due to a lack of teeth. Peanut butter cups did not come about until the mid-1920s. H.B. Reese's Candy Cups was the first to start this candy. The Hershey Chocolate Company bought H.B. Reese's Candy Cups in 1963 and have produced them since.

Peanut butter cups are easy to make at home. They are great to make for yourself and family. They are also perfect to make if you need a gift for someone that is a guaranteed pleaser. Package them in a plain white candy box and tie with a colorful ribbon and add a festive bow.

Peanut Butter Cup Recipe
Makes 24-36 depending on the size of the mold

Ingredients:

14-16 oz. of chocolate candy melts (depending on where you buy them I have seen both 14 and 16 oz. as a standard size)
1 cup smooth peanut butter
1/3 cup confectioner's sugar
Mold for small peanut butter cups
Candy wrappers to fit the mold

Directions:

1. Combine the peanut butter and sugar in a mixing bowl.
2. Form into small balls and flatten slightly to form the shape of a disc (diameter of 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch).
Note: You may need to add more sugar. You want enough where the peanut butter is not too sticky to roll into balls. Another tip is to wet your hands and the peanut butter will not stick as much.
3. Melt the chocolate over a double boiler.
4. While the chocolate is melting place wrappers in the mold.
5. Once chocolate is melted, fill half of the wrapper in mold with chocolate.
6. Drop a peanut butter ball in the mold.
7. Cover with chocolate, filling to the line and making sure peanut butter is covered.
8. Freeze for 10 minutes or until firm.
9. Repeat until all peanut butter and chocolate are gone.

Sweeten the Soul with Chocolate and enjoy!
