As I was looking through my recipe index, I stumbled across my chocolate peppermint pattie recipe. It immediately had me
drooling craving those bad boys. Six months ago I would have jumped into the car, driven to the store, picked up the ingredients and sped home to make them. Considering I have a cute little six month old napping upstairs, that’s out of the question. I’m on house arrest while he sleeps. Instead of going to a real grocery store, I went grocery shopping in my pantry. Chocolate, check. Coconut oil, check. The remaining ingredients…no where to be found. So what’s a chocolate craving chef to do? Improvise! I spotted the peanut butter and honey which triggered my idea for chocolate peanut butter cups. Honestly, I have taken the spoon to the peanut butter jar, dipped it in the chocolate and been a happy girl. I resisted the urge and took the 15 minutes to make the peanut butter cups. Thank goodness I did…they are taaaaasty! Although, it’s nearly impossible to go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate, so it was guaranteed to be a successful recipe.
I kept and ate these frozen. They are a bit messy when eaten at room temp, but still finger lickin’ good (literally).
According to my recipe taster, Taber, these taste “exactly like Reeses Peanut Butter Cups. The only difference is the dark chocolate”. Not too shabby of a review, especially when it comes from someone still on the fence about dark chocolate.
