Peanut butter and chocolate were meant to be together -- cozied up in a warm, gooey cup of deliciousness.
These Peanut Butter Cups
are made from a devil’s food cake mix with a creamy peanut butter ball surprise in the middle. These come together dangerously fast. From first craving to completion, we’re talking thirty minutes tops.
I decided to make them in small ramekins to establish some kind of portion control. Because believe me, you’re going to need some help in restraining yourself from eating it all.
Start by preparing your cake mix as normal and pouring a little bit into the bottom of your ramekins.
The real indulgence comes from these peanut butter balls. I made mine about the size of a golf ball and snuggled them in the cake batter.
Top the peanut butter balls with a couple more tablespoons of batter so that the ball is hidden.
Right when they come out of the oven top each cake with a tablespoon or so of chocolate chips and let them melt from the heat of the cake. Look at that chocolate melting on top.
You can spread it with a knife after it has melted to make a smooth layer or just leave it how it is.
The best part…the warm and creamy peanut butter inside. Dig in…you know you want to!
