Summer of Homemade – Giant Peanut Butter Cups

I’m not a big sweets eater, but I wanted to try these out.  I could watch Tasty videos all day long and recently they had one where they made a giant peanut butter cup.  Theirs was the size of a cake/pie.  I didn’t want that.  Fortunately, I had some tartlette pans and figured I’d just make the recipe but use smaller pans.  Came out perfectly!

First I melted some milk chocolate (2 cups to be exact) and put that in the pan and up the sides.  I let them sit in the fridge for an hour or so.

After that, I made the filling. 2 Cups of peanut butter, 2 cups of powdered sugar and 1/2 cup of butter. Yeah, these aren’t healthy foods I’m making. I filled the shells with the mix.

I melted more milk chocolate for the top and put them back in the fridge to cool for another hour (or longer).

Once they were done, I popped one out of the tart pan to try. Perfect! No way I could eat a whole one, so I just had two bites and put it back in the fridge. I made six of them so my wife will probably take a few to work tomorrow.
