Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

A weeks ago I saw this post on Design Sponge. Then funnily enough, days later I saw Kenzie posted that she made them too! So I obviously had to make them. I used a mixture of milk and very dark chocolate. Cisco likes his 70%, and although I'm not a huge fan of Milk chocolate, I do enjoy something in between. I also mixed the peanut butter with honey and sea salt.

Growing up, my favorite store was Lee Bear & Co., it was the only thing we had close to a candy / baking supply store on Maui. It was great. I'd buy chocolate in bulk, molds, cello bags to wrap my homemade lollipops, etc. they had everything. This was at a time when ordering anything online wasn't available, so I was very happy to have this place. I took many class there, chocolate making, and hard candy.

Then I moved to NY and got spoiled. If you live in NYC and are in search of a great candy and baking supply store N.Y. Cake & Baking Dist. on 22nd st. is Amazing!

ps. it's snow storming again today


  1. that definitely looks amazing and i so want to make some! i love the rose chocolate moulds.

  2. Looks yummy!
    Wish I could shop at the NY Cake & Baking Dist., it would come in handy if we had those type of stores on Oahu. I think I would be making sweets all day :)
    It's such a sunny morning here, the birds are chirping and the skies are clear. Hope the weather gets better for you.
    Sending some Hawaiian sunshine your way.
    Aloha, Merissa.
