Peanut Butter Cups

Your favorite store-bought peanut butter cups are that much better when made at home.


  • 18.5 ounces 70 percent chocolate
  • 2/3 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup icing sugar
  • 2 3/4 unsalted butter, softened


  1. Melt half the chocolate and pour it evenly into the bottom of a lined cupcake pan.
  2. Tap on a surface to flatten the mixture, and freeze for 15 minutes.
  3. Beat the peanut butter, icing sugar and butter together until light and fluffy. Spoon it on top of the chocolate and tap again to flatten. Freeze for 15 minutes.
  4. Melt the remaining chocolate and pour it over the top to finish. Tap again and freeze for 15 minutes.
