Peanut Butter Cups

Ingredients:

  • 8 oz. milk chocolate, chopped
  • 4 tbsp. unsalted butter, at room temp
  • 3/4 c. natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 c. honey

Preparation Instructions:

  • Place twelve, 2.5 inch baking liners on a baking sheet. In a double broiler, melt the chocolate. Reserve the pot of hot water to keep the chocolate liquid, as necessary.
  • Place about 2 tsp. of the melted chocolate in a baking cup, swirling to coat about halfway up the side of the cup. Repeat with the remaining cups. Refrigerate until set.
  • Using an electric mixer, beat the butter until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the peanut butter and honey. Transfer the mixture to a resealable plastic bag and snip off one corner.
  • Fill the chocolate cups about 3/4 full with the peanut butter mixture, smoothing the surface. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  • Top each peanut butter cup with melted chocolate to enclose, smoothing the surface. Refrigerate until hardened. To serve, remove the candies from the baking liners.
