Chocolate Caramel Cups

Method

  • Melt the chocolate in a bain marie or in the microwave.
  • Drop a spoonful of melted chocolate into each cupcake liner.
  • Press both edges of the liners with a spoon or a pastry brush to spread the chocolate all around the sides and bottom of the cupcake liners.
  • Place the liners in the metallic cupcake pan cavities. Use the spoon to spread and mold the liners to fit the pan cavities.
  • Put in freezer until the chocolate freezes and hardens.
  • Pulse the graham crackers along with the peanuts in a food processor, until they break down but not completely.
  • Add this mixture to the dulce de leche (caramelized condensed milk).
  • Add spoonfuls of the mixture to the frozen chocolate cups.
  • Smooth the top with a spoon.
  • Cover the filling with the remaining chocolate.
  • Can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
  • If you keep them in the refrigerator the chocolate won’t discolor and turn cloudy but will keep its luster.
  • It’s also important to chill the peanut butter cups properly. This way you can remove them easier from their liners.
  • A note for the dulce de leche. It is made by boiling a can of condensed milk for 3 hours and making sure it is continuously submerged in the water while it is boiling. You can also make it in a pressure cooker for 1 hour.
