Ritz Peanut Butter Cups

If you think peanut butter cups are a little too sweet, make your own and add a Ritz cracker! I love the sweet and salty combination.

Ritz Peanut Butter Cups
The amounts here are just a guide, it depends upon the size of your moulds, but they need to be roughly the size of a Ritz cracker. Use either milk or dark chocolate, whichever you prefer!

200g chocolate
60g peanut butter
20g icing sugar
15g unsalted butter, softened
8 Ritz crackers

Line a muffin pan with cupcake cases. I used a silicone cupcake mould which held 8 cases.
Melt the chocolate and pour a little into each cupcake case, covering the bottom. Put into the fridge to harden.
In a small bowl, mix the peanut butter, the softened butter and the icing sugar together until smooth. Pipe or spread onto the chocolate in the cases. You can use neat peanut butter if you prefer.
Pop a Ritz cracker on the top of the peanut butter and gently press down.
Top with the rest of the melted chocolate and put back into the fridge to harden.

There's an idea I'm stealing :)

I ate enough peanut butter cups last Halloween to put me in a sugar coma. Yet, I've never tried making them.
And your version looks simply delicious!

I'm a great fan of peanut butter cups... love the idea of making them at home and the addition of some salty and crunchy crackers! I bet they'd make great Christmas presents, too!
