This homemade peanut butter cups recipe is a decadent improved version of the candy bar. The peanut butter is enrobed in rich dark chocolate rather than milk chocolate, which gives the confections a shinier exterior due to the high level of cocoa butter. Choose a version of dark chocolate with seventy percent cocoa butter or higher for the most richness and shine. If you aren’t a fan of dark chocolate, the higher the percentage, the more bitter the chocolate will be. Dark chocolate is the best chocolate for indulging in because it contains a high number of flavonoids, an antioxidant, than any other variety of chocolate. Dark chocolate is also richer, and therefore, more satisfying to eat, which means you will eat less of this peanut butter cup recipe in one go. All you need to complete this chocolate recipe is a 12-cup muffin tin and some liners. These peanut butter cups would be perfect for your next Halloween party or Christmas confection when you want to create chocolate gift boxes for those you care about.
