I will never understand the obsession the male half of my family has with peanut butter. To be honest, if I was never allowed to eat peanut butter again, I would probably live a long and fulfilled life. Not so for the men in my two families. Peanut butter is a staple.
This recipe is adapted from Karen Solomon’s Jam It, Pickle It, Cure It, and makes 12 large peanut butter cups.
Get your ingredients together:
1 1/2 cups crunchy peanut butter (I got mine fresh ground at the health food store!)
1 teaspoons honey
2 tablespoons icing sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups chopped chocolate
Have ready 12 large cupcake liners. Or more.
Take about two teaspoons of the peanut butter mixture, roll it into a ball, then flatten it into a patty that will fit in the cup but won’t touch the sides. Do the same with the rest of the peanut butter until you have twelve. Or, if like me, you doubled the recipe, you’ll end up with more than that.
