Peanut Butter Cups are a great source of immediate energy, good before doing the sport they won’t leave your stomach full and heavy. They are a perfect to-go “candy” that you can carry with you in your bag or car. If not eaten right away, you can store them in a container in a fridge or freezer for a long time.

As this super-simple treat contains only two ingredients, quality is very important. Try to use the darkest chocolate with the lowest percentage of added sugar. Same with the peanut butter. When I was living in Nepal, I used to make my own peanut butter as I could not find one that I would like, and that would not contain anything else but peanuts. Still, if I can I prefer to buy a good quality peanut/ cashew/ almond butter to save some time. In this recipe, I only used peanut butter, but you can use any nut butter you like – cashew, almond, pistachio… or even any filling you like (coconut butter, homemade nougat, fruit puree…) just make sure your filling is thick enough.

INGREDIENTS
(for 10 middle-size cups)

200g Dark Chocolate

3 Tablespoons Peanut Butter (or one of your preference)

DECORATION

Rose Petals, Beetroot Powder, Pistachios, Pumpkin Seeds, Sea Salt …


METHOD

  1. Place small paper cups on a plate or even surface. I recommend doubling paper cups – it’s easier to work with them
  2. Melt the chocolate in a small pot over the boiling water (double boiling method)
  3. Pour a tablespoon of melted chocolate inside the cup. Move the cup around so that melted chocolate covers sides of the cup. Repeat this with all cups. Place cups for 5 minutes into the freezer to allow the chocolate to set
  4. Take cups out of the freezer and spoon a bit of peanut butter (or your filling) in the middle of the cup
  5. With a tablespoon, cover the filling with the rest of melted chocolate and let it sit for a minute or two
  6. For decoration, I used rose petals, beetroot powder (great balance of sour beetroot and sweet chocolate), and nuts
  7. Place cups back to the freezer for at least 20 minutes. After that carefully remove the paper and enjoy
