I won’t even bother wasting your time with my normal daily musings today. I’ll save that for tomorrow. So now, right now, go make these Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzels Cups. They have the most perfect sweet and salty harmony of anything I’ve eaten in a long time. Pure bliss!
Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Cups
Makes 8 large cups
Adapted from The Diva Dish
1 1/2 cups of dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup of natural peanut butter
1 cup of pretzels, crushed (leaving some chunky and some finely crushed)
Three ingredients people! So simple and so unbelievably worth it! To make these puppies start by lining a muffin tin with 8 muffin cups and set aside. Then begin melting the chocolate chips in the microwave. I microwaved the chocolate chips in 30 second intervals, stirring in between each one, until they were completely melted. Then take about a spoonful of the melted chocolate and place in the bottom of the muffin cup and spread a little up the side of the muffin cup as well to create what will be the sides of the end product.
Place the muffin tin in the freezer for about 10 minutes or until the chocolate has hardened. While those are in the freezer make the filling for the cups by mixing the peanut butter with the crushed pretzels. Once it has been 10 minutes take the muffin tin out of the freezer and place a spoonful of the peanut butter pretzel mixture inside each cup. Cover each cup with another spoonful of the melted chocolate making sure it covers the filling completely and touches the sides of the cups as well. Sprinkle some crushed pretzels on top for a little fun, and place in the freezer for another 10 minutes.
After those 10 minutes are up, take the cups out of the freezer and store them in a container in the fridge for a tasty, tasty, treat! Once you take them out of the fridge eat immediately because they will start to get all melty. And because if you don’t eat them right away someone else will!
