Peanut Butter & Honey Cups


I made these as part of the boxes of baked goods I gave my grandparents, parents and in-laws for Christmas. They are a great treat to make for your loved ones! Here is the basic recipe...

Ingredients:

1 block of chocolate
Peanut butter
Honey – you can use regular or creamed
Mini cupcake patty cases

Method:
 

1. Melt the block of chocolate in the microwave – cook for 1 minute then stir. Cook for another 30 seconds & stir until fully melted.


2. Place the mini patty cases in a mini cupcake tin – this helps the chocolates keep their shape. Place 1 teaspoon melted chocolate in each case.


3. Place a half teaspoon of peanut butter and a half teaspoon of honey on top of the chocolates.


4. Cover with another teaspoon or so of chocolate. Decorate and refrigerate.

Other ways to spice it up:

- Use caramel top‘n’fill instead of the peanut butter & honey to make soft caramel centres.

- Use flavoured chocolate such as nut varieties (we love Cadbury macadamia) or liquor chocolate.
- Replace the peanut butter and honey with nutella for a super chocolaty hit!
- Decorate using coloured white chocolate, by placing a nut on top or with sprinkles!
