I really enjoy spending my free time baking so I thought I'd set up a blog dedicated to just that :)

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.)


  1. I ordered my gold stars and petit four cases from I have bought from this site a few times as everything is free delivery and comes within a couple of days, and it's very reasonably priced.

    I didn't quite mix the base enough so you had to eat these in one bite or the base fell apart a bit but as a peanut butter hater I actually really enjoyed them.

  2. i need a tissue... these look so good i drooled!
