Peanut Butter Cups

Peanut butter cups

When I was young I always thought that cooking was hard. Since I live by myself I have been forced to learn how to cook and surprised to learn it is not big deal.

Do not misunderstand me – I am by no means a home chef. I am a chubby guy who loves food and is only now learning about how to prepare special diets and the concept of healthy eating.  I used to think that healthy recipes couldn´t be that delicious.

Last Friday for Valentine’s Day, Jhoana, one of the members of Tisano’s Team decided to make some lovely healthy treats for our team: Peanut Butter Chocolate Cups with hearts shapes.

I was preparing the Presidents Day Newsletter when she began melting the chocolate and suddenly the entire office was impregnated with the addictive sweet and delicious chocolate aroma.  I could not resist the chocolate scent.

Once or twice I was tempted to put my finger in it, but she wouldn’t let me near the melting batch of chocolate.  She said I could only have one if I helped make them and luckily for me I learnt a new recipe and go to enjoy some scrumptious peanut butter cups.

This is what she did:

  1. Melted 16oz of organic dark chocolate by putting it in a small pot over a larger pot with hot water (this she explained was called a bain marie)
  2. Poured the melted chocolate into some cute cupcake silicone baking cups, and refrigerated them for about half an hour.
  3. Once the chocolate was hard she melted ½ cup of organic peanut butter let it cool for a couple of minutes and poured it over the silicone baking cups.
  4. Refrigerated the silicone baking cups for 30 minutes while she melted the chocolate again.
  5. After the peanut butter was hard, she poured the chocolate that was left into the baking cups and refrigerate them again.
  6. Half an hour later…Voila!  This delicious treats was ready to enjoy!

To my surprise this recipe was easy enough for me! I could not believe it was that easy, tasty and organic.
