After seeing this recipe for homemade peanut butter cups and how ridiculously easy it was I knew they were next on my list. There are only four ingredients, and they’re all things I had on hand. No running around Manhattan to baking supply stores that are only open a few hours a day. Which do not include the hours I’m not at work. Because that’s convenient.
See, I told you. Only four ingredients. FOUR.
Double broil some chocolate chips and then put a thin layer on the bottom of your cupcake liners. Freeze for 15 minutes.
Then whip up the peanut butter/confectioner’s sugar/butter mixture and put on top.
Shake it like a salt shaker. Or just tap the pan on the counter. However you get the peanut butter to smooth out is up to you. Freeze 15 more minutes.
Finally, cover with the other half of the chocolate chips and freeze one final time. Present them to your friends and take credit for making an easy treat that seems complicated. You’re very welcome.
