Chocolate Peanut-Butter Cups

by . Featured in NIGELLA CHRISTMAS

Introduction

These are really a homespun version of the famous Reese’s confection of the same name, embellished with gold to give a touch of glitz. Pressing the peanut butter layer into the petit-four cases is not a hard job, just a boring one, and I find once I’ve accepted that, the mindless, repetitive activity can be positively therapeutic.

  • Groovy! Years ago I created a similar recipe to emulate the joy of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. I rolled the mixture into balls, dipped them in melted chocolate and left to set. Perhaps an easier option for those looking for one. :)

  • For peanut butter cups like Reese's, you need chocolate on the bottom too. It will spread a bit up the side when you press the peanut butter disk on top.

  • Can't find the old stars anywhere. Jane Asher closed. Any ideas please.
