Easy Giant Peanut Butter Cup
Prep time
Total time
Serves: 1
  • 500g chocolate (I used 250g milk, 250g plain - it's up to you! You could use white too)
  • 550g smooth peanut butter (or use crunchy - whatever floats your boat!)
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 3 tbsp butter, melted
  • Icing sugar - to taste - but likely 3 - 4 tbsps
  1. Line your tin with thick tin foil, overhanging the edges, and pop your chocolate into a large heatproof bowl to melt. Heat on 30 second increments in the microwave, stirring between each one, until melted.
  2. Use a spatula to spread a thick layer of melted chocolate across the bottom of the tin, and up the sides. Don't worry if it won't stay up the sides much! Pop into the fridge.
  3. While the chocolate sets a bit, combine the peanut butter in a large bowl with the melted butter and salt. Add icing sugar one tbsp at a time, stopping when you're happy with the taste.
  4. Use a tablespoon to dollop the peanut butter mixture into the chocolate base, smoothing it down with the back of the spoon.
  5. Cover the entire top of the peanut butter cup with more melted chocolate, allowing it to seal all the edges. Add sprinkles, chopped peanuts or whatever you want on top.
  6. Store in the fridge, bringing it out a good hour before you'd like to eat a slice.
