Chocolate Nut Butter Cups

These four ingredient chocolate and peanut butter cups is the easiest recipe to make. It’s a great project for children to get involved in! And they would have even more fun eating them!

When you have a craving for something sweet, these chocolate bites satisfy the craving and dark chocolate is so healthy. Studies have shown that dark chocolate is good for the heart and in calming anxiety. And the antioxidants gives the skin a radiant glow.

I used baking chocolate but any dark chocolate works well. You could also use any nut butter and maple syrup instead of honey. Vegans could substitute with agave syrup. This recipe is from Livestrong and makes about 12 chocolate cups.

PREP: 25 minutes COOK TIME: 2 minutes

Ingredients

1 cup dark chocolate baking chunks

½ cup peanut butter

1 tbsp honey

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Melt the chocolate over a bowl of hot water or in the microwave. Scoop a couple of teaspoons into each ice cube compartment. Refrigerate the trays for five minutes until the chocolate just starts to firm up. Mix together the peanut butter, honey and vanilla. Spoon the nut butter evenly over the cold chocolate molds. Cover each compartment with the remaining melted chocolate (about a teaspoon for each mold). Refrigerate another 15 minutes until chocolate is solid.

A Hint Of Spice

Hi. I am Padma and I am passionate about delicious food. Food is amazing in that it can take you to another place and time in your life just by the taste, smell and touch. Even a photograph evokes memories that lie dormant within us. I still remember a coconut candy that I used to eat as a child. Even though it’s not available now, I clearly remember the taste. It takes me back to my childhood pleasures as nothing else can. Being Indian, my palate is so used to spices. I started experimenting by mixing spices with European and other Western cuisines. The result is truly delicious. I love trying out different spices with different recipes. Sometimes I use the powder and sometimes I grind the spices with other herbs, onions, etc in the blender. The result is quite spectacular – a lovely fusion of the East and West. I hope you like my recipes and are inspired enough to try out a few of them. I would love to hear back from you.
