Get someone in the house to make these divine homemade peanut butter cups for you – hello, kids!

330 grams dark chocolate
½ cup salted peanut butter (if not salted, add a pinch of salt)
2 tablespoons icing sugar, sifted (you can increase this if you prefer them sweeter).


  1. Line up 12 shallow paper cases (4-5 cm in diameter) or silicon cupcake wrappers or a chocolate mold on a tray.
  2. Melt half of the chocolate using the double boiler method or melt it in the microwave
  3. Fill the cases with half the chocolate. Lift the tray and drop it from a short distance onto the bench top to settle and level the chocolate. Place the tray in the freezer to chill for 10 minutes.
  4. In a small bowl beat together the peanut butter and icing sugar.
  5. Distribute and spread the peanut butter mixture over the first layer of chocolate.
  6. Melt the other half of the chocolate and distribute over the peanut butter layer.
  7. Place tray in the freezer again for 10 minutes to chill.
  8. Generally these are eaten at room temperature but you can keep them in the freezer tightly wrapped for up to a month.
