Chocolate Snowflake Peanut Butter Cups

These are peanut butter cups disguised as chocolate snowflakes.  

Very festive don't you think?!
These are my first ever attempt at making peanut butter cups, not that difficult I hear you say - but how about making the Peanut Butter Cups in the shape of intricate Snowflakes - a little fiddly to make, but well worth the effort.  


I found the snowlflake silicon moulds at Flying Tiger designed for ice cubes.  It worked very well for these chocolate snowlflakes.
D gobbled a piece in one go, which surprised me as my Chocolate Snowflakes were a lot more deeper in depth than traditional mini bite size Peanut Butter Cups.  
I am more of a lady and ate mine a small bite at a time.  I am sharing these with Tin and Thyme for We Should Cocoa  

I am hoping to make Peanut Butter Cups again, but net time with a vegan Mousse filling.

  2. These look so pretty; I love them! I tried making something like them in mini silicone mounds, but I used salted cashews made into butter in a food processor. That was even better than peanuts, and I bet almond butter would be great too. Have you ever tried making chocolates with it?

    1. Thank you. Salted cashews and almond butter sound lovely - will dry that combo in the future. I have made raw chocolate in the past, but not with these moulds - maybe next year now

  9. These are so pretty Shaheen and very ladylike too. My peanut butter cups were a lot larger and I wouldn't like to say how quickly I gobbled them down ;)

    Peanut butter and chocolate are such a favourite with most people, these would make a fantastic festive gift. Thanks for sharing with #WeShouldCocoa and I'd like to wish both you and D a very happy and fulfilling 2018.
