You’ll get a gorgeous Chocolate and peanut butter heart just by assembling in 3 easy steps! So check out below how delicious and amazing this treat can be. Plus look how gorgeous the finished product is!
What you’ll need:
1/2 cup of Peanut Butter
1 1/2 cups of Powdered sugar
1/4 cup of melted butter
Begin by melting the chocolate wafers over a double boiler. You can microwave it but I always feel like I have more control with the double boiler method because it will help keep it warm while you layer the chocolate and peanut butter.
Peanut Butter filling:
Mix powdered sugar, peanut butter and the butter.
It will create a peanut butter paste.
Add a small amount of chocolate to the mold.
Then lightly shake side to side to make sure it’s spread evenly. Put in freezer for 5 minutes . Then add the peanut butter mixture. Light layer as well and shake lightly side to side . Put in freezer for 5 minutes. So it firms up a bit for the final layer of chocolate.
Finally, add final layer of chocolate, shake side to side to make sure its spread evenly and seamlessly.
Freeze for about half an hour and then pop them out. You can store them in the refrigerator afterwards.
Look at the delicious layering and aren’t they beautiful?
They taste just like the Reese’s peanut butter hearts only prettier 😀
