Recipe by: loveandoliveoil.com


Yield: 1 (8X10 PIECE)


Ingredients:

8 ounces good quality, dark chocolate (70-80%), very finely chopped

6 ounces peanut butter chips (I used Trader Joe’s peanut butter chips)

1 cup mini peanut butter cups (I used Trader Joe’s mini milk chocolate peanut butter cups, but you can also chop up larger peanut butter cups instead)

Directions: 

  1. In a microwave, double boiler, or chocolate melter, gently melt chocolate on the lowest possible heat setting. Stir regularly, removing from heat as needed. The goal here is to keep the temperature under 90 degrees, above which the chocolate will lose its temper. Be patient, keep stirring, and even with on and off low heat the chocolate will melt eventually.
  2. Meanwhile, melt peanut butter chips in a microwave safe bowl by microwaving on medium power in 20 second intervals, stirring until melted. The chips should be smooth and ‘drizzleable’. If yours seem too thick, stir in a 2-3 teaspoons of melted shortening or coconut oil to thin it out. READ MORE
