Peanut Butter and Jelly Cups
Method
  • Put the chocolate in a small ovenproof dish or bowl. Place over a pot with boiling water. Stir until the chocolate melts.
  • Set aside so that the chocolate cools a bit. It should be warm. If it is too hot, the cups will crack or break apart.
  • Place disposable cupcake liners in a 12 cavity cupcake pan (12 or less).
  • Add 2 teaspoons full of the melted chocolate to each cupcake liner. Fold the liner in half. When you open it back up (unfold it), a thin layer of chocolate will have spread all over the inside of the liner. Add a little more chocolate to the bottom part of the liner (as shown in pictures).
  • Put pan in freezer for 5 minutes.
  • Fill each cup with 2 heaping teaspoons of peanut butter. Top with 1 teaspoonful of strawberry jam or honey.
  • Cover with the remaining chocolate, in this way “sealing” the cups.
  • Use a spatula to smooth the top of each cup.
  • Put the pan in freezer for 30-45 minutes.
  • Remove cups from liners and serve.
  • They can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 1 week and in the freezer for up to 1 month.
Tip
You can eat 2 and even 3 of these without feeling over-sweetened! Make them with your favorite jam or jelly!!!
