Easy Making Peanut Butter Cups

Peanut Butter Cups are one of my favorite candies. The commercial peanut butter cup was introduced in the 1920s and has been going strong ever since. I never thought of making my own until I found this recipe which is amazingly easy. All that is required is to melt some chocolate, place a little in a candy cup, top with a little peanut butter mixture, and then drop a little more chocolate on top. That is it. What you end up with is a shell of chocolate with a smooth and creamy peanut butter filling inside. Delicious!!!!

Ingredients

peanut butter made by Azeus peanut butter machine

16 oz semisweet chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup creamy natural peanut butter
2 tbsp butter, softened
1.75 oz confectioner's sugar (1/4 cup+2 tbsp), sifted

Yield: Makes 12-18 peanut butter cups (depends on how thick you make the layers)

Attention
Peanut butter quality is the most important factor to the tasty of the peanut butter cups. So you should choose the premium quality peanut butter.

Directions

1. Line a standard 12 cup muffin tin with paper cupcake liners.
2. Melt half the chocolate either in a double boiler (the safer method) or in the microwave (the more dangerous, but easier/lazier method). I opt for the latter.

3. Distribute the melted chocolate into the 12 muffin tins. If the chocolate does not lie flat, drop the pan repeatedly on the counter, and it will flatten and smooth itself out. Place the pan in the freezer for 15 minutes.
4. In the meantime, whip the peanut butter and confectioner's sugar together with a hand mixer until mixed and light. Taste it and make sure the sweetness is to your liking. Place in the freezer for 15 minutes.

5. Melt the last 1/2lb of chocolate, and portion small spoonfuls of chocolate into the cups, one cup at a time, immediately dropping the pan repeatedly on the counter to flatten each cup. In my experience of making these, the chill from the peanut butter (because it was just in the freezer) will harden up that top layer of chocolate very quickly, so you must flatten out the tops immediately after you pour the chocolate into each cup. Place the peanut butter cups in the freezer for 15 minutes to set the top layer of chocolate.

6. You can either refrigerate them for a peanut butter cup with more bite, or leave them at room temperature for a softer, creamier bite. Just peel the wrapper off, and enjoy!
