Peanut Butter Cups
For the base:
50g soft dark brown sugar
200g icing sugar
50g butter, softened
200g smooth peanut butter
For the topping:
200g milk chocolate
100g dark chocolate
gold buttons/dragees/stars to decorate
Place all the base ingredients in a food processor and blend until the mixture takes on a sandy texture. Mixing with a wooden spoon works just as well you just need to get your hands in there to make sure the butter isn't in big clumps.
Spoon about a teaspoonful of the mixture into the bottom of 48 gold petit four cases and press the mixture down as best you can in the bottom of each case.
Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of barely simmering water, whilst stirring. Once melted spoon teaspoonfuls of chocolate on top of each of the bases.
Decorate the tops with the gold decorations, then place in the fridge to set (minimum of 30 minutes.)
