Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

Quick post today. January is turning out to be busier than expected so apologies for the lack of posts. I've had this recipe bookmarked since last year from Nigella's Christmas and I'm glad I finally got round to making them. They are just like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups but better! I watched Nigella demonstrate the recipe on her Christmas show which was the impetus for making these. I also needed some gluten free treats for my afternoon tea and I absolutely love peanut butter so this was a no brainer. A word of warning though, they are quite addictive! 

I'm sending this to Bookmarked Recipes hosted by Jacqueline from Tinned Tomatoes. I've had this recipe bookmarked for over a year from my copy of Nigella's Christmas. The recipe is also available online.

 I used mini silver star sprinkles and I did a few colourful ones as well

  1. Mmmmm. I love peanut butter cups. I bet these are so much nicer though!

    1. The are much tastier and so easy to make at home.

  2. There is something about January that calls for chocolate peanut butter cups - good work!

    1. Ha ha true even though I'm in the small minority as almost everyone I know is on a diet of some sort!
