1/10 Photos of Peanut Butter Cups
There are so many different versions of this wonderful combination. This is mine and I have used it for close to 20 years. This is DS favorite! The creamy peanut butter refers to a brand such as Jif or Skippy. I don't think a natural peanut butter will work as it is missing the oil Also, the margarine for the chocolate mixture is melted before adding to the chocolate chips. If water gets in the chocolate it well "seize".
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1With a pastry blender, cut the peanut butter, 1/2 cup margarine and powdered sugar together by hand DO NOT USE A MIXER OR IT WILL BE TO CREAMY; the mixture may need to be "kneaded by hand".
- 2Line a 13x9x2 inch pan with foil, spread the mixture with slightly buttered hands into prepared pan.
- 3In top of double boiler over boiling water, add 1 tablespoon melted margarine and 12 oz chocolate chips taking care not to get water into the mix.
- 4Stir constantly until melted, mixture will be glossy.
- 5Spread immediately over peanut butter mixture.
- 6Allow to cool and harden slightly, cut into squares.
- 7DH suggested using a pizza cutter to cut these into squares and it works great!
- 8After these are cut and the chocolate has set, I store these covered in a tupperware container.
