With very little prep and hassle, you can make these sweet tasty bites and wow the special someone on the receiving end. They are probably the quickest tasty treat I have ever made...and cheap too, with only 4 ingredients! They are not the healthiest things however, but who doesn't like a naughty something once and a while.
Ingredients (makes 8 large chocolates)
- 400g chocolate, around 52% cocoa (very cheap from Lidl!)
- 2 tbsp smooth peanut butter (or dairy free nut butter if preferred)
- 1 tsp maple syrup or natural sweet syrup such as 'Sweet Freedom'
- goji berries to decorate
You will need silicone moulds, so that the chocolates come out easily. Mini cupcake cases would also work.
1. Place all of the chocolate into a glass bowl resting on a saucepan with a little water in it. Heat up the saucepan to melt the chocolate, stirring occasionally. When the choc is melted, after around 3 minutes, pour a little into your moulds - about 1 1/2 tbsp each depending on the size of your mould, or 1/2 tsp if using mini cupcake cases.
2. Put the chocolate in the freezer for a few minutes while you prepare the peanut butter filling.
3. Mix together the peanut butter and sweetner. If you find it won't mix, heat it up a little in a pan.
4. By this time, the chocolate in the freezer should be nice and hard. Remove it and spoon 1 tsp of peanut butter filling in the centre. Return them to the freezer for another few minutes.
5. If the chocolate that was heated up has gone a bit hard, pop it back on the hob to heat it up.
6. Finally, once the peanut butter filling has hardened, remove them from the freezer and place another 2 tbsp of chocolate on top, levelling the cups out as much as possible. Decorate with a few goji berries, nut sprinkles or rose petals before returning them to the freezer for a final set - around 2 hours.
7. If you have used silicone moulds, the chocolates should pop out extremely easily. The outside should be nice and hard, and the centre all gooey and delicious.
Extremely quick and scrumptious - ENJOY!
