It’s Weekend!!!!! That means ….I’m baking. For my weekend cheat meal I made a Giant Peanut Butter Cup that I saw online.
Its pretty easy to make and you can eat it within 3 hours.
It might not be a Reese’s peanut butter cup but its a close imitation. If I made it again I would probably add more sugar and a little less butter because for me it was too buttery.
4 cups milk chocolate chips, divided
2 cups creamy peanut butter
2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
½ cup butter, softened
First you place half of the chocolate chips in a microwavable bowl and melt the chocolate in 30 seconds intervals stirring the chocolate during each interval. Then pour it into a pie dish making sure to cover the whole dish including the sides. Put it in the refrigerator for 1 hour. I popped it in the ice box and it took less than an hour.
For the filling mix the butter, peanut butter and icing sugar together until thoroughly mixed then scoop it into the chocolate shell. Melt the rest of the chocolate chips the same way you in the microwave then scoop it over the peanut butter filling and smooth it. Refrigerate for an hour. Cut into pieces and serve
My chocolate was too thick so when I cut the pie it broke into 2. Admittedly one pie is too big for me and my husband so we cut it into 4 pieces and froze it.
