These 4 ingredients Peanut Butter Banana Cups are a lighter alternative to more traditional versions and are literally melt in your mouth delicious. Eat from the freezer for an ice-creamy, fudgy type filling, or leave to defrost for a few minutes and they will become super creamy, smooth and oozy!
PREP TIME: 15minutes
TOTAL TIME: 15minutes
190g | 1cupdairy-free chocolate chips
4 tablespoons | 1/4cupnatural peanut butter, ( you can sub this for almond butter if you prefer)
1tablespoonsugar(I used coconut sugar)
1/4teaspoonsalt(optional but really works with the flavour)
Start by melting the chocolate very gently. You can do this in a microwave or in a small bowl placed over a pan of simmering water.
Drop a dollop of chocolate into each case.
Spread out with a spoon and work up the sides with the back of the spoon, making sure it goes into all the nooks and crannies.
Put into the freezer just for a few minutes while you make the filling.
In a food processoror blender add the banana, peanut butter, sugar and salt.
Blend until smooth.
Remove the molds from the freezer and fill with the peanut butter mixture, leaving enough room to add a top layer of chocolate. Flatten out the peanut butter mixture with a knife or spatula as best you can.
If you want your peanut butter cups to look really good, pop them back into the freezer now so that the peanut butter mixture sets up a bit. It won't take long. 10 - 15 minutes max. If you aren't in this for the looks then you can skip this step.
Remove from the freezer if you put them in there and add a layer of chocolate to the top. Smooth with the back of a knife or a spatula and return to the freezer until completely set. They really don't take too long.
You will need a peanut butter cup mould or small paper cases placed inside a mini muffin tin. You could use bigger cases inside a larger muffin tin if you prefer. Your Peanut Butter Banana Cups will just take a little longer to set, the bigger they are. My molds are about 1.5 inches across and around 1/2 an inch deep. If yours are significantly different in size then the finished quantity will vary. You can see my peanut butter cup mold in one of the pictures above. I got it for $2 or $3 at Bulk Barn . They have a good selection of candy molds at great prices.
