* Put in freezer for 10 minutes or so, so that the chocolate hardens.

 

No judgement about my freezer.

No judgement about my freezer. Yes, “we” (aka my children) eat mini pizzas, waffles, and chicken nuggets. (Also, top right corner: Wandering Goat coffee from Eugene, sent monthly to us by my wonderful parents. CHECK THEM OUT. BEST COFFEE EVER).

* Place the peanut butter mixture on top of the frozen chocolate layer. Don’t add too much (like I did). Rather, a small dollup in the center of the chocolate tin.

add peanut butter (I was overzealous and added too much. Don’t do what I did).

 

* Then, add the remaining chocolate on top of the peanut butter.

* Place back in freezer to harden for the last time.

 

* Take out of freezer, and using knife, take out of the tins.

Mine, although incredibly delicious, turned out to be more of a chocolate / peanut butter sandwich, rather than a cup. Less peanut butter would have allowed the second layer of chocolate to form more of a mold around it.

Ken and I like to split them for dessert — they are messy, they are rich, but they are also OH SO GOOD. So make ’em. Hope you have a great weekend! Happy March!
