There aren't many foods that go together quite like peanut butter and chocolate. A magical combination, now you can make those perfect pillows of sweet and salty peanut butter cups right at home.

"Made from scratch, they seem almost magical — how did that creamy peanut butter filling get in there? But it's not magic! In fact, it's quite simple."

Emma Christensen, Editor of The Kitchn

Peanut butter filling

Combine powdered sugar and peanut butter into a food processor and mix until dry. Transfer the peanut butter mixture into a bowl, and store in a cool spot. See resources section for a step by step homemade peanut butter guide.

Melt the chocolate

Melt the chocolate into a bowl. Prepare the moulding with muffin tin liners while the chocolate is melting.

Fill the moulding

Add a thin layer of melted chocolate into the tin lining and smooth evenly with the back of a spoon to create a chocolate base. Place the trays into the refrigerator or freezer until the chocolate has set and firmed.

Peanut Butter Filling Preparation

While the chocolate sets, scoop a small spoon of peanut butter filling and create a round disk with your hands to form a disk just a little bit smaller than the tin mould. Place the disk on top of the chocolate.
