Homemade Valentine Chocolates


I'm bringing these to a party :)  I personally never have a Valentine's day party. I have no kids to throw one for and my husband and I have a tradition for our Valentine's celebration.  We run the Couples Classic 5k and visit the spot along the coast where we were engaged.  Sometimes we stay the night at the beach and other times we just come home. So I'm excited to be going to a party. Dollhouse Bake Shoppe blog
is having a virtual Valentine's day party. How fun will this be :)


Thanks to the Decorated Cookie I found out about the party, headed over to Dollhouse Bake Shoppe and LOVED her sight! So of course I had to bring some of my famous homemade peanut butter chocolates.

Here's what you'll need:

1/2 stick of margarine
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup peanut butter
Bag of Wilton chocolates ( I use these because they come in colours and are so easy to use)
Molds
A good paint brush

You can use any brands. I just happen to have these.

Mix all 3 ingredients together, kneading well. I do this with a spatula.

Melt the chocolate wafers in a double boiler. Keep on low heat.  You could melt the wafers in the microwave too but I'm a double boiler kinda gal.

Brush chocolate around the sides and bottom of the mold. I then tamp the mold on the counter to get out air bubbles. Put in the refrigerator until firm.


Remove from the refrigerator and fill with peanut butter.

Cover the peanut butter with chocolate and refrigerate again until firm.

Yummy homemade peanut butter chocolates that taste WAY better than Reeses Peanut Butter Cups. These melt in your mouth.  I say they're famous because my friends look forward to them every time I make them.


My aunt passed this recipe on to me. She took a class at Michael's and got the recipe there.

Happy Valentine's Day!  Thanks Dollhouse Bake Shoppe for hosting :)

  4. Thank you for leaving some blog <3 The Hungry Artist :) YES, you should make some. If you know anyone who likes Reeses PB cups they will LOVE these! Put the peanut butter mixture in the fridge to firm up a bit. It's easier to work with. And if you have ANY questions, shoot me an email :) Oh and let me know how your's turned out :)
