I’ve been busy writing and working on presentations lately…which unfortunately leaves a little less time experimenting in the kitchen. I always, somehow… 🙂 have a few minutes to scroll through Pinterest…and these homemade dark chocolate peanut butter cups caught my eye! This is not one of my recipe creations…find the original recipe here!
So cute…I made them in a mini cupcake tin but the original recipe makes them in a regular size muffin tin. I like a bite size treat! The recipe yielded about 20 mini peanut butter cups. They were a big hit, fun to make and really a nice low FODMAP treat.
First, melt a little dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips. (FODMAPers: milk chocolate has lactose so is not advised on the low FODMAP diet. Most semi-sweet or dark chocolate works for the low FODMAP diet…just don’t go overboard. The Monash U low FODMAP app cut off for dark chocolate chips equates to about 2 tablespoons per serving.) Dark chocolate is a nice low FODMAP treat in moderation! 1-2 mini peanut butter cups should be tolerated by most.
I always melt chocolate chips in the microwave…if you are careful not to burn the chocolate it can be an easy method.
These cute peanut butter cups take some time…so make them when you can be hanging out in your kitchen for about an hour. You won’t be preparing them the whole time…don’t worry! They are easy…but you need to melt chocolate, place in cupcake tin and then refrigerate for 15 minutes and then add peanut butter mixture …and then refrigerate….and lastly a layer of melted chocolate. Not a difficult process…just takes some time.
The peanut butter mixture in the middle is a little melted butter, a little confectioner’s sugar (powdered sugar) and peanut butter. I always cut back a little on the sugar when I can.
