I'm going to give you step by step instructions on how to make these yummy Frozen Peanut Butter Cups!! Seriously. These are my new favorite indulgence. Absolutely super delicious. It only takes a few ingredients, and since I aim to please, I took many pictures along the way. It really is easy. Don't let the number of pictures fool you. Here goes. First...the ingredients.
Frozen Peanut Butter Cups (courtesy of Tyler Florence)
1 pound (16 oz) of semisweet chocolate. (I do not recommend using chocolate chips. You can find bars of semisweet chocolate right above the chocolate chips in the store.) Chopped up.
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup warm water
1/4 cup honey
1 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped
1/4 cup chopped salted peanuts
Put the pan in the freezer to harden while you are making the filling. Remember, keep the melted chocolate warm...we'll need it again in a few minutes.
Sprinkle chopped nuts over the tops of each cup and put it all back in the freezer for about 20 more minutes. In the mean time, look at my blog and make a comment or two.
Ok. Now you can invert the muffin pan and pop out your fabulous peanut butter cups. Put them on a cute plate...wander over to your bed. Get comfy under the covers, and watch a really great chic flick.
These can be eaten straight out of the freezer. The chocolate isn't too hard, and the whipped center stays...well...whipped. It does not harden. You can also keep them in the fridge. I don't recommend you leaving them on the counter for long, because you will end up with kids who help themselves, thus making a chocolaty mess.p.s. This recipe makes 30-40 mini peanut butter cups.
