These Salted Peanut Butter Cacao Cups are little pieces of heaven in a bite! Oozing with peanut butter, with sweetness coming from the cacao cup section, saltiness from the himalayan pink salt and finishing it off with balanced bitterness from orange zest! If you're a lover of chocolate or peanut butter, you MUST try these. So simple and fun to make too!

Ingredients

Equipment
  • Grater
  • Small Glass Bowl
  • Saucepan
  • Wooden Spoon
  • Hand Whisk
  • 5cm Wide Cupcake Liners
  • Cupcake Tray
  • Freezer

Method
  1. Start off by grating the cacao butter into a glass bowl.
  2. Place the glass bowl over simmering water (a bain marie, making sure the glass doesn’t touch the water).
  3. Stir until the cacao butter is fully melted.
  4. Add the cacao powder, maple syrup and whisk until smooth.
  5. Simply pour a small amount (roughly 1cm) of the mix into each cup cake liner. Then pop into a tray, so they keep their shape.
  6. Carefully place them into the freezer for 5 minutes.
  7. Take them out the freezer and add 1/2 a teaspoon of peanut butter to each cup (try smoothing it over with the spoon or your finger).
  8. Pour the cacao mix until it covers the peanut butter.
  9. Place back in the freezer for 10 minutes.
  10. Finish by topping each cup with orange zest and a small pinch of salt.
  11. Serve & enjoy!
