Peanut butter chocolate cups.


(In Portuguese)

Remember reese's?

These were supposed to be like them. Here is where I got the recipe.
I think it didn't really come out similar to reese's, but it was good.
And people here said they don't mind that I keep trying until I reach the perfect recipe. :P

For 12 cups, I used:
2 1/2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
(it is the same if you buy a big chocolate bar and chop it yourself)
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup confectioners sugar, sifted
6 graham crackers, crushed
1 teaspoon salt
Obs: I measure 240ml/8oz for each cup.

First, I melted 1 1/2 cup chocolate in a water bath. It is important to do it slowly and never let the water boil. If it is the case, it's better to turn off the heat.
I lined 12 muffin tins with paper liners, and then painted the sides and bottoms
of the liners with chocolate, using the back of a spoon.
I left them in the fridge for 5 minutes to harden a bit, then reinforced the side layer.
I took them back to the fridge for 20 minutes, meanwhile I got the butter filling ready.
Go ahead and guess how to do it?
You just mix everything together until smooth. Tah-dah!
I divided the peanut butter filling into 12 equal parts and placed it inside the chocolate
shells. Melted the remaining chocolate and poured it with a spoon over each cup to close them.

I got a little mixed up, because at first I thought the sides of the shells were too thin.
Then it seemed like the paper wouldn't come out later, and ohmygoodheavens.
But it worked wonders, really.
When I try it again, I'll come to the blog and let you know! :)
