I've been trying to figure out something (eatable) I could make for valentines day. After my last few baking attempts have been less than excellent, I decided I should keep it simple. I also wanted something easily transportable.
So I made peanut butter cups! But not just any peanut butter cups. Heart shaped peanut butter cups. Clearly the best kind.
I vaguely followed this recipe from allrecipes.com.
1 package chocolate chips.1 cup peanut butter1/2 cup confectioners sugar1/4 tsp salt
1. Trim 12 paper muffin cup liners to half of their height.2. Place 1/2 chocolate chips in a microwave safe container. Microwave for 2 minutes, stirring after each minute. Spoon melted chocolate into muffin cups, filling halfway. With a spoon, draw the chocolate up the sides of the cups until evenly coated. Cool in the refrigerator until firm.3. In a small bowl, mix together peanut butter, confectioners' sugar and salt. divide into the chocolate cups. Melt the remaining chocolate, and spoon over peanut butter. Spread chocolate to edges of cups.
The parts I didn't follow? I eyeballed the proportions based on how many I wanted to make. Also, I used silicon muffin liners so they're easily removable.
