Chocolate-Puddle Peanut Butter Cups

20 Jan


So I have a lot of posts to put up; hopefully I can get it all done tonight. A random bunch of recipes but they are all so good. This will be the first of the lot.

If you are in Vancouver right this moment, you can probably agree with me that the weather outside is AWFUL! It is snow and then rain, and then snow, and then rain, and then SLUSH puddles form, and I have to try and run and jump over them, and I usually don’t succeed. šŸ˜„

Puddles O' Love ā¤

I made these a while ago, and have been meaning to put them up. They are pretty rich and decadent, and though they look small, are actually HUGE. Think about it, a hollowed out peanut butter cookie-muffin, full of chocolate fudgey goodness. Damn. Also, the name I gave them is deceiving. These are the reverse of a peanut butter cup, where the chocolate is on the insider and peanut butter on the outside. INSANE I know.

Cream butter, Peanut butter, and sugars together. Mix in egg and vanilla, and then flour mixture until thoroughly combined. Roll batter into 1 inch-sized balls and place in muffin compartments.


Bake 12-14 minutes. Remove form oven and indent wells into each puffed ball. Cool in pan for 5 minutes.
Mix sweetened condensed milk, chocolate, and vanilla together in a pot, placed over a pot of simmering water (or double boiler). Mix continuously, and when all contents and thoroughly combined, remove from heat.
Spoon small dollops of chocolate into peanut butter cups. Cool on wire rack, then place in refrigerator for a harder chocolate if you like!If you want to top the chocolate with pecan halves, coconut, or other toppings, go for it. Make them fancy.

Happy baking!
