Chocolate Peanut Butter Biscuit Cups






When I came across this recipe on Blithely Unaware, I saved it and of coarse forgot about it lol!

I haven't made it a secret that I have been craving salty sweet anything at the moment! Since I was pregnant this flavour combo was my absolute favourite, and I'm still addicted now!!! So when I saw this recipe that Mez made I had to make it!!!

Oh my I'm so glad that I did, well sort of I ate way too many of these little salty, peanuty treats!

I made them using an Anzac biscuit base found here, and adjusted it slighty. I used wholemeal flour instead of plain, and only 1/2 cup brown sugar, no lemon and only 100 grams butter.

I pressed the mixture into a 24 small cupcake sized baking tray, so they were little bite sized pieces. With the leftover mixture I made 14 Anzac biscuits.





I also had such a craving I couldn't be bothered to do the whole infuse the milk with the peanuts. So I skipped this step.....

I then baked the biscuits for about 10-13 minutes. In a 160C oven. Take them out and cool them.
Dollop a teaspoon of crunchy peanut butter in the middle of each biscuit base.

Meanwhile I warmed only 150mls cream, with 150 grams milke chocolate, to melt the chocolate. Then smother the peanut butter with chocolate. I coated them a couple times.

Then I pushed a few roasted peanuts into the top of the biscuits. And sprinkled each with a small amount of pink salt flakes.

I couldn't even wait to chill these in the fridge to try :) They were delicious. I will be making them again this week.

I may have to make these with white choc....baby hates chocolate :(
