Who knew? Peanut Butter and Jelly Cups are the easiest chocolate treat that you can make at home - and these are way better than anything you can buy at a store!
With a hardened semi-sweet chocolate shell outside, filled with creamy peanut butter and your favorite jelly of choice, it'll be hard to put these yummy homemade sweets down. Don't forget to store these in the fridge to keep them nice and cold - don't worry, the chocolate will still melt in your mouth!
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 24 ounces good quality semi-sweet chocolate
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- Your favorite jelly or preserves
Line muffin tins with cupcake/muffin liners.
In a microwave proof bowl, add the chocolate and vegetable oil. Microwave for 30 second intervals, removing after each interval and stirring with a spoon until smooth. Should take about 3 intervals.
Pour one spoonful of melted chocolate on the bottom of each liner.
Spoon a dollop of the peanut butter in the center of the chocolate, and a spoonful of jelly on top of the peanut butter. Make sure the peanut butter and jelly are in the center of the chocolate and not touching the sides of the liners.
Pour melted chocolate over the peanut butter and jelly dollops to cover them completely.
Smooth the top out with a spoon and repeat until you've filled all the molds.
Freeze for 30 minutes, until firm, then remove, wrap and refrigerate until ready to eat.
