As a housewarming present once my brother gave me a box of 36 Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Yum. What a great brother. Given I had so many I experimented a bit with using them in cooking. This slice is really great – buttery and scuity with chunks of peanut butter cup scattered throughout. If you want the slice to be soft, cook for 30 minutes. If you’d prefer it to be more crunchy and firm then leave it in the oven for an extra 5-10 minutes.
8-10 Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
1 cup – 225 grams brown sugar
1/3 cup / 75 grams white sugar
170 grams butter
2 tbs milk
2 cups / 300 grams plain flour
½ tsp baking powder
50 grams cooking chocolate
1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Grease and line a slice tray. Remove
the peanut butter cup wrappings and cut each cup into chunks. Set aside.
2. Place both sugars and the butter in a bowl and beat until well combined
and light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, then blend in the milk.
Stir through the flour and baking powder.
3. Add the Reese’s peanut butter cups and mix through. Pour into prepared
tray and flatten the mixture down. Bake for 30 – 35 minutes then remove
from oven and leave slice to cool in the tin.
4. When the slice is cold, melt the cooking chocolate and drizzle over the
slice. Allow the chocolate to set then cut onto bars or squares.
