peanut butter cups kids can help make
As we all know, they are the perfect pair, but do you know that you can easily make your own peanut butter cup at home with one ingredient?
Your kids can help too!
This is not all.
They are more nutritious than stores-bought variety. Talk about (a delicious)win!
Here\'s what you need to make a simple and delicious peanut butter cup at home: cocoa powder coconut oil pure maple syrup (
Or liquid honey if you like)
Your choicesea salt, natural peanut hair, butter, chopped nuts (optional)
It\'s more of a recipe than a recipe.
It is not picky at all, can easily adapt to more or less sweetness, make cups with more chocolate and less nut filling, and use different types of nuts and seed butter.
That said, what you need to know is: equal portions of cocoa powder and coconut oil, plus sweeteners to taste the chocolate coating, using sweeteners to taste nut butter and chopped nuts to taste the nut fillings. That’s it!
Now that you know this secret formula, here\'s how we make it!
The chocolate coating first measures 1/2 cups of cocoa powder and then invites your little one to pour it into a large bowl.
Add 1/2 cups of melted coconut oil and a 1/3 cup of pure maple syrup and stir until it looks like a delicious smooth chocolate sauce.
Invite your little one to add a little homemade chocolate coating to each mini silicone baking cup.
We loved our peanut butter cup, mostly filling it with a little bit of chocolate, so we just added enough to completely cover the bottom and then rotate along the side of the Cup.
This brings us to the next step!
This is probably the trickiest part of the whole recipe, but the worst thing is to sprinkle a little chocolate sauce, which is a very happy mistake if you ask my daughter.
Pick up each silicone baking cup carefully and turn it upright so that the sides of the cup are covered with chocolate.
You may need to do it several times to get a good layer of chocolate, but since perfection is not our goal, uneven side coverage is not really a problem --
They must be delicious either way!
Upon completion, place the silicone cup in the refrigerator or freezer when preparing the nut filling.
3/4 cup of natural peanut butter, 3/4 cup of chopped nuts (
We like to bake pecans, but obviously the peanuts are perfect as well)
2 tablespoons of honey or pure maple syrup, large pinch of sea salt (if desired)
A mixing bowl.
Mix well until the mixture is thick and the nuts are evenly distributed.
Take the chocolate when the filling is ready-
Remove the coated baking cup from the refrigerator and start to form a nut butter pie with a measuring spoon or finger.
Place the pie in each toast and flatten the top with a spoon or finger.
Scoop more homemade chocolate sauce directly on top to cover the nut stuffing.
Now, if the jam is thick from the beginning of you, just add a little heat.
We usually do this by putting a bowl of chocolate sauce in a small bowl full of real hot water, but I suspect a quick stay in the microwave might also work.
After heating, place the Peanut Butter Cup back in the refrigerator or freezer again.
If it\'s a firm touch, you\'re ready for the most satisfying task-
Peel them off the silicone baking cups!
You want to put these in the air.
Tight containers in the refrigerator or refrigerator can keep them in shape, but they will be the most satisfying food when you crave sweets!
