Peanut Butter Cookie Cups

A soft melt in the mouth cookie base with a peanut butter “caramel” filling and a chocolate top. Basically all of my favourite things in one bite, at least my favourite sweet things. I say that and I immediately start thinking of all the other things I love, but to be fair, cookies, chocolate and peanut butter are my top three!

These cups look so cute and are super easy to make. All you need is a little silicon muffin tray to make popping out the cookie bases super easy. I haven’t tried baking them in muffin or cupcake liners but if anyone does be sure to report back.

Manilife kindly sent me some of their peanut butter to try so I figure I’d put it to recipe use. I’ve also just been spooning it out of the jar, as you do. Drippy yet crunchy, the perfect kind for drizzling on smoothies, bowls of oats, or filling up the centre of a juicy date! FYI for those of you in Ireland it’s now available in Dunnes Stores.
