Ok – So here it is… Peanut butter cups that are made from four ingredients; chocolate chips, peanut butter, icing sugar and a bit of butter! Wait, it gets even better… I found a couple similar recipes on line, but I have adapted the recipe to be even better…not only does they taste amazing (trust me, they are gooood!) But I have modified it so that the only thing you have to wash after making these is the spatula I used to scrape the peanut butter out of the jar!
So, like I said, four ingredients needed: 1 cup of peanut butter, a couple tablespoons of butter, a half of a cup of icing sugar, and about a half of a cup of chocolate chips.
Here’s a tip: If you tap or bang the cupcake tin, the chocolate will settle and spread out evenly across the bottom of the liners.
We stuck the chocolate in the freezer and while we were waiting, I used a cup to hold open another sandwich bag and filled it with the peanut butter, icing sugar and butter. I zipped it closed, and gave it to Dylan to mix up. (In case you haven’t figured it out yet, the sandwich bags are my brilliant idea to avoid dirtying any dishes…it’s also a whole lot more fun to mix stuff by squishing it!)
So after we got tired of squishing the peanut butter, we took the cupcake pan out of the freezer, and cut a hole in the corner, and squeezed out a little peanut butter filling onto each liner. Once agaain, the trick here is to bang or tap the tin to settle the peanut butter.
