This peanut butter cup recipe is an easy, no-fuss candy to make and one that we are all so familiar with. Customize them in a way you like best. Use milk, dark, or white chocolate, and sprinkle the top of the candy with sea salt or colorful sprinkles.
These would be a Gr8 sweet for your sweet on Valentine’s Day or any day. Enjoy!
Transfer half of the chocolate to a heatproof measuring cup with a pour spout. I used this nifty candy funnel found on Amazon (see below).
Using the tip of your finger, press the peanut butter mixture down to flatten a bit. You can press it all the way to the edge of the wrapper or leave a small space between the mixture and the wrapper that will fill with chocolate. (Moisten your finger with water so that it doesn’t stick to the peanut butter.)
Transfer the rest of the chocolate into a heatproof measuring cup with a spout or a candy funnel. (If the chocolate is not as warm/pourable as you would like, reheat it for a moment or two on the stove top, or for 10-15 seconds in the microwave).
Peanut Butter Cups can be stored in an air tight container in the refrigerator for 2 weeks or in the freezer for 1 month.
These would make a wonderful gift for anyone young or old!
