Inside Out Peanut Butter Cup

 

If you like peanut butter cups, you're going to love this dessert. I took the main concept of a peanut butter cup and flipped it inside out! The crust is made with peanut butter and the filling is a rich chocolate fudge. To add that special touch, I topped it off with a chocolate and peanut butter frosting.  


Ingredients are as follows:

Crust:
1/2 stick (4Tbsp) butter, softened
1/3 C creamy peanut butter
3/4 C sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/4 C flour

Filling:
3/4 C chocolate chips
1 stick (8 Tbsp) butter
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 C sugar 
1 C flour
2 eggs, beaten

Frosting:
1/2 C chocolate chips
1/2 C creamy peanut butter

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees; grease a springform pan.

Cream together the butter, peanut butter, sugar and salt.


Add flour and mix until crumbly.


Press dough into pan making sure it comes up the sides (about two inches).


Bake in preheated oven for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. While the crust is baking, melt the chocolate chips, butter and salt over medium heat.


Remove from heat; add sugar and flour, stir until combined.


Add the beaten eggs, stir until you get a smooth consistency.


Pour into par baked crust and bake an additional 20-22 minutes.            


Remove from oven; cool for ten minutes, remove from pan & continue to cool.


In a small saucepan (or microwave) melt the chocolate chips and peanut butter; stir until combined then drizzle on top. Slice, serve and enjoy!

  83. What size springform pan did you use? Thanks Aviva

    ReplyDelete
  84. Did you use semi sweet choc chips or milk choc chips? Would a regular pie pan work?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I used milk chocolate, however you could use semi-sweet and I think a regular pie pan would work just fine; a spring form just makes it easier to slice.
