~ Peanut Butter Fudge ~
1/2 cup (125 grams) creamy peanut butter
2 tablespoons (28 grams) unsalted butter, room temperature
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (55 grams) confectioners (powdered or icing) sugar
9 ounces (255 grams) semi sweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
9 ounces (255 grams) milk chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon (10 grams) shortening
Line 36 miniature muffin cups with paper liners.
Place the peanut butter, unsalted butter, and salt in a microwaveable bowl, and heat in the microwave for about one minute or just until soft, but not melted (check and stir the ingredients every 20 seconds). Stir in the confectioners sugar.
Melt the chocolates and shortening in a heatproof bowl placed over a saucepan of simmering water.
Drop a teaspoon of the melted chocolate into each of the paper lined miniature muffin cups. Top with a scant teaspoon of peanut butter mixture. Then top with another teaspoon of melted chocolate. Refrigerate until set. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Makes about 36 peanut butter cups. Preparation time 30 minutes.
