A tasty grown up version of a childhood classic: Peanut Butter Cups. Dark chocolate, PB, and bourbon come together in cute, mini-sized bites.
Peanut butter cups. I used to love them, but I don’t anymore because I feel that the chocolate tastes like paraffin. Why waste the calories? Well, I had never thought of making them at home, but these will be on heavy rotation now, all year long. I don’t know how else to describe them but with the word a-ma-zing. In this homemade version of your childhood favorite, dark chocolate, PB, and bourbon come together in cute, mini-sized bites. They’re my favorite treat of the year. They take a little while to assemble, but one recipe makes a nice quantity and they keep very well, so you’ll enjoy them throughout the holidays (or maybe not, if you love them as much as I do). And if you want to make them kid-friendly – your kids will be jealous, believe me – just drink the bourbon instead.
This recipe makes 36 cups, so if you only have one mini-muffin pan, you’ll have to work in batches. Or, if you’re using foil candy cups, they may be sturdy enough to hold their own if you simply set them on a baking pan, allowing you to make all 36 cups at once.
