Extra large home made peanut butter cups!
Very fast, easy recipe for a quick peanut butter&chocolate craving!
Remember to always heat chocolate on LOW heat. If the chocolate begins to clump, do not add water/milk/cream. Add shortening or butter to smooth it out again. It won't take much so add by the tsp until the right consistency has been acquired.
