How To Make Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups


Watch and find out how you can make these delicious Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups from scratch.

Ingredients:

Chocolate Bottom Layer
¼ cup heavy cream
1 cup chopped semi-sweet chocolate

Peanut Butter Center
1 cup smooth peanut butter
¾ cup butter
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/3 cup sugar
½ tsp vanilla extract
¼ tsp kosher salt

Chocolate Top Layer
¼ cup heavy cream
¾ cup chopped semi-sweet chocolate

Caramelized Peanuts
1 cup roasted peanuts
½ cup sugar
1 tbsp water
Pinch of kosher salt

Directions:

1) For chocolate bottom layer, line 12 muffin cups with paper liners and coat with non-stick cooking spray. In a small saucepan, heat ¼ cup cream over medium heat just until hot. Remove from heat and whisk in 1 cup chopped semi-sweet chocolate. Distribute melted chocolate evenly between muffin cups and refrigerate for 15 minutes to allow the bottom chocolate layer to harden.
2) For the peanut butter layer, in a microwave-safe dish, melt peanut butter and butter together. Stir in graham cracker crumbs, sugar, vanilla extract and salt. Place a few tablespoons of peanut butter mixture over hardened chocolate, filling the muffin cup ¾ of the way up. Refrigerate for 15 minutes more to harden.
3) For the top layer of chocolate, in a small saucepan, heat ¼ cup cream over medium heat just until hot. Remove from heat and whisk in ¾ cup chopped semi-sweet chocolate. Distribute melted chocolate on top of the peanut butter layer. Garnish with caramelized peanuts. Chill until firm, at least 30 minutes before serving.
4) For the caramelized peanuts, combine peanuts, sugar and water in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir continuously, until peanuts turn an amber color without burning them. Remove from heat, spread out on parchment paper, sprinkle with salt and let cool. Break into pieces and garnish peanut butter cups.

EASY BAKING RECIPE - How to Make the Best Banana Bread


This bread is BANANAS, B-A-N-A-N-A-S! No seriously, Lisa nailed this recipe. She took the classic Banana Bread and transformed it into a decadent dessert by topping it with Peanut Butter Frosting & Bark.

Ingredients:

Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 large eggs
1½ cups ripe bananas (3-4), mashed
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
2½ cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1½ cups chopped semi-sweet or milk chocolate

Peanut Butter Frosting
1 cup smooth peanut butter
1 cup butter, softened
2 tbsp cream
2 tsp vanilla extract
4 cups icing sugar

Peanut Butter Bark
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup peanut butter chips
1 cup mini Reese`s Peanut Butter Cups
1/4 cup Reese`s Pieces

Directions:

Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread
1) Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray.
2) Using an electric mixer, cream together sugar and butter on medium speed until well blended, about 1 minute. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add mashed bananas, sour cream and vanilla. Beat on low speed until blended, about 30 seconds. With a wooden spoon, stir in flour, baking soda, salt and chocolate chunks just until moistened and the flour has disappeared. Spoon batter into prepared pan.
3) Bake 70 minutes, until lightly browned on top and cooked through. Cool 10 minutes in the pan before removing to cool on a wire rack.

Peanut Butter Frosting
1) For the frosting, using an electric mixer, cream peanut butter and butter on medium speed until combined. On low speed, add cream, vanilla and icing sugar. Raise speed to medium and beat until icing sugar is incorporated.

Peanut Butter Bark
1) Place semi-sweet chocolate chips in a medium bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds and stir. Continue to microwave in 20 second intervals, stirring after each interval, until smooth.
2) Meanwhile, place peanut butter chips in a small bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds and stir. Continue to microwave in 20 second intervals, stirring after each interval, until smooth. Tip: If the peanut butter is too thick, add 1-2 vegetable oil to thin it out.
3) Pour melted semi-sweet chocolate on baking sheet lined with wax paper. Drop lines of melted peanut butter and run a toothpick through it to make swirls. Top with mini Peanut Butter Cups and Reese`s Pieces. Place in freezer for 1-2 hours. When ready to serve, break into pieces and enjoy! More
