Reeses Pieces has got nothing on these homemade crispy peanut butter cups! They are absolutely decadent, rich, creamy and crispy! With only 6 simple ingredients these beauties whip together in no time. 

Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 2 Tablespoons icing sugar, sifted
  • 1 Tablespoon unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2 Tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons crispy puffed brown rice (or Rice Krispies)
  • 11 oz milk chocolate (good quality, I use Lindt), divided
  • Flaky Sea Salt (I used Maldon)

Instructions

  1. On a baking sheet place 12 small sturdy muffins cups (approx. 1 1/2″ diameter). Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl add peanut butter, icing sugar, and butter together and mix until smooth.
  3. Add crispy puffed brown rice and stir together. Set aside.
  4. Melt 9 oz (just less than half) of the chocolate over a double boiler or in the microwave.
  5. Transfer melted chocolate to a piping bag and pipe chocolate evenly into prepared cups (working quickly as the chocolate will start to firm up).
  6. Bang the cookie sheet gently on the counter to release any air bubbles and to evenly flatten the chocolate.  Then place the cookie sheet into the freezer and freeze chocolate cups for 5-10 minutes, or until set.
  7. Once set spoon a teaspoon of the peanut butter mixture into the centre of each chocolate cup and smooth out making sure not to touch the edges.
  8. Melt the other half of the chocolate, transfer to a piping bag and pipe the chocolate over the tops of the peanut butter mixture, starting at the edges and working into the middle.
  9. Again, bang the cookie sheet gently on the counter to release any air bubbles and to evenly flatten the tops. Place the cookie sheet into the freezer and freeze the chocolate cups for 5-10 minutes, or until set.
  10. Sprinkle flaky sea salt on the tops.
  11. Let peanut butter cups come to room temperature before enjoying.

Notes

Store peanut butter cups in a container at room temperature for up to 5 days or in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. Let peanut butter cups come to room temperature before serving.  Or freeze in an airtight container for up to 2 months.
