Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup icing sugar
  • 300 g milk chocolate (about 11 oz) chopped

Method

Line 20 mini muffin tin cups with candy cups; set aside.

In bowl, stir peanut butter with icing sugar until smooth. Drop by 1 tsp onto parchment paper–lined baking sheet. Freeze until firm, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, in heatproof bowl set over saucepan of hot (not boiling) water, melt chocolate, stirring, until smooth. Spoon 1 tsp into each candy cup; add 1 peanut butter ball to centre of each. Top each with 2 tsp chocolate, spreading to edges and smoothing tops. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 1 week; let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes before serving.)
