Chocolate Love

All of my friends gave me chocolate yesterday. They know me well!

Mmm, chocolate coma!

On VDay I gave out homemade peanut butter cups wrapped in foil just like real chocolate.

Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups 

HOMEMADE PB CUPS... Reese's has got nothing on these yummy cups.

 200 grams of chocolate (equivalent to two bars)
0.5 cup of plain peanut butter (natural)
0.25 cup of honey

Melt chocolate on minimum heat. Take a mini muffin tin or a regular sized tin with a bit of oil to keep it well greased. Spoon melted chocolate into the bottom of chocolate (a little more than a teaspoon). Then place the muffin tin in the freezer for 5 minutes to firm up. After 5 minutes, take a heaping teaspoon of the honey PB and roll it into a ball, then flatten it it into a disc. Place the disc ontop of the chocolate base in the muffin tin. Make sure that the disc is not as wide as the entire tin's width (you want room to get chocolate on the sides of the PB disc). Then pour chocolate on top of the disc, making sure that chocolate gets all around the disc and covers the top entirely. Continue until all the cups are filled with discs and covered with chocolate. Garnish with a peanut and place in the freezer to firm up for another 5 minutes.  To remove the cups, use a spoon to "plop" the discs out. They will seem stuck but they will pop out easily due to greasing them in advance. Makes 12 mini PB cups or 6 large ones.

Share with those you love! <3

Substitutions: use maple syrup instead of honey and almond butter instead of PB.
