Granny’s Peanut Butter Cups June 13, 2016

Peanut

Oh so much better than the Reece’s one’s, simply because they are made with Cadburys chocolate. If you love peanut butter, you will love these!

 

Ingredients

 

12 miniture paper cake cases

340g Cadburys milk chocolate

1 cup smooth peanut butter

1/2 cup icing sugar

 

Method

 

Melt the chocolate in a bowl over hot water.

Using a teaspoon put a small amount of the melted chocolate into the center of a paper case, and using the back of the spoon draw the chocolate up and around the side of the paper case, coating the entire of the inside of the cake case. Repeat with all the cake cases, then put in the fridge to harden.

Mix the peanut butter and icing sugar together well in a bowl.

When the chocolate shells have hardened, warm the peanut butter mixture in the microwave for a minute, this will soften it, makeing it easier to use.

Spoon the peanut butter mixture into each of the chocolate shells, leaving room to add more chocolate on top. Put back in the fridge for an hour to harden up.

When the peanut butter has hardened, re-melt the rest of the chocolate and using a teaspoon, spread the melted chocolate on top of the peanut butter.

Place back in the fridge to harden.

These will keep in a sealed container in the fridge for a couple of weeks, they’re also good to give as gifts…if you can stop eating them yourself πŸ˜‰

Malteser and Mars Bar Slice June 10, 2014

Malteser & Mars Bar Slice 1

Ok these are pretty amazing! If like me, you like chocolate, you’ll love these! Oh, also easy to make, which is always a plus πŸ™‚

 

Ingredients

 

1 cup of Maltesers plus extra to decorate (240g & you’ll have some left over)

4 Mars Bars ( 53g bars)

1/2 cup Condensed Milk

1 pack of Chocolate Biscuits (250g) I used Fox’s chocolate munch)

200g bar Cadbury Milk Chocolate

100g unsalted butter

1 teaspoon oil (I used Olive oil but you could use vegetable instead)

 

Method

 

Line a tin with baking parchment (mine measured 25cm x 16cm but if you want a thicker slice use a smaller tin)

Finely crush the Chocolate Biscuits. You can use a food processor or the end of a rolling pin.

Roughly crush 1 cup of Maltesers.

Dice the Mars Bars into small pieces (easiest done if they’ve been in the fridge for a while first)

In a small saucepan over a low heat, melt the butter and condensed milk, stirring until combined.

Add the roughly crushed Maltesers and Mars Bars to the crushed biscuits and stir through.

Then add the melted butter and condensed milk and stir until combined – it will be very sticky!

Pour the mixture into the tin and flatten with the back of a metal spoon.

Pop it in the fridge forΒ at least an hour until it has completely cooled.

Melt the chocolate and add 1 teaspoon of oil to the melted mixture, making sure you stir it in.

Pour the melted chocolate over the cooled slice and then decorate with remaining Maltesers.

Put the slice back into the fridge to set completely.

The easiest way to slice this is to take it out of the fridge half an hour beforehand. Enjoy πŸ™‚

The 25cm x 16cm tin size made 15 slices.
