The addition of dates here gives it a creamy, caramel flavour that is simply divine! These peanut butter cups go above and beyond and they're easily one of my favourite sweet snacks to whip up. Give them a go -- you won't regret it!
  • 100g dark chocolate (I used 78%)
  • 6-7 tbsp peanut butter (I used my homemade one)
  • 3-5 dates (optional)
  1. Melt two thirds of the dark chocolate in the microwave (or over a double boiler) for approximately 3 minutes, stopping every 30 seconds to stir
  2. To temper the chocolate (ie stop it from melting at room temperature), keep a third in the fridge/freezer and add it in when the chocolate comes out of the microwave and stir it in until it melts
  3. Pour a teaspoon of chocolate into the bottom of 6-7 cupcake cases and put in the freezer for 2 minutes
  4. Add a tablespoon of peanut butter on top, and top with half a date (optional) and pop it back into the freezer for 2 minutes
  5. Add another 1½ tsp of melted chocolate onto each, and refrigerate to set.
  6. Enjoy!
