These peanut butter slices are inspired by Reece’s peanut butter cups. I first had them when in Canada and loved them. I used to bring them back for friends, but now of course you can buy them in the shops.
I thought that I would have a go at making something like them myself. The first attempt was so sweet, but we managed to eat them! I then made some digestive biscuits myself as I didn’t have any, and made some peanut butter too, I made it extra crunchy so that you would be able to taste the bits of peanuts in the bars as well. I didn’t add any extra sugar and mixed the whole lot together with equal quantities of melted dark, milk chocolate and butter. Success!! It was much much better and is disappearing fast!
- 100g milk chocolate, broken into pieces
- 100g dark chocolate broken into pieces
- 50g butter, cut into small pieces
- 200g digestive biscuits or oat biscuits, broken up into smallish pieces
- 200g crunchy peanut butter
- Place a pan of water on to boil.
- Put both types of chocolate and butter in a bowl that will fit over your pan of water.
- When the water has boiled put the bowl on top of the pan and turn off the heat to the pan. Allow to melt completely before you try to stir it up.
- Line a tin about 17cm x 10cm with baking parchment, see the video for a handy tip.
- In a large bowl, mix together the biscuit pieces and peanut butter.
- When the chocolate and butter has completely melted, gently stir it together, don’t worry if it goes a bit funny looking, then mix it in with the biscuit mixture.
- Tip the whole lot into the prepared tin and level it out.
- Put it into the fridge to firm up for an hour, then take it out and cut into slices. I did about 15 from mine!
- Keep it in the fridge, but try to let it warm up a little bit before you eat it- if you can wait!
