the holy grail: make your own peanut butter cups!
(my hand model and taster, Missus Peanut Butter Cup)
Readers here will have noticed that I live on peanut butter. There was the quest last summer for a peanut butter and jam muffin recipe, which was very successful. But this was more important: can you make peanut butter cups at home? Last week's recipe tasted Ok, but it was a mess and a very difficult recipe to use. A little floating around on the web led me to another blogger who had searched as I had, experimented and made a very wonderful peanut butter cup, which is easy too.
Basically, she melts some chocolate and spoons some into paper muffin cups, then plops on a peanut butter mixture which has some powdered sugar and vanilla, topped with the rest of the melted chocolate and then cooled. Couldn't be easier, and I think it would be fun to do with kids too. I happened to be very messy and not too careful and got chocolate and peanut butter all over: doesn't matter, tastes great!
