{food} chocolate peanut butter cups

Taking a cue from Alana and Ashley, I made my own chocolate peanut butter cups over the weekend. Pardon my english, but they're f***ing fantastic! They're two and a half inches in diameter, an inch thick, filled with a mixture of peanut butter and sea salt, and extremely decadent! 

Beats a Reese's any day. Full recipe here.

I'm giving up sugar for 30 days AND THIS IS THE CLOSET I CAN GET TO HAPPINESS.
Tell me, how delicious were they???

tina -

i can't even begin to describe how amazing they were. "decadent" is the closest i can get :)

good luck with the no sugar for 30 days! coincidentally, i'm starting a self-imposed "no dessert for a month" thing tomorrow, the beginning of march. so these peanut butter cups better be gone by tomorrow!

question: when you say "no sugar," do you mean no desserts? or no sugar, like anything you eat can't have sugar, like no jelly, no cereal, no fruit, etc. ??

I knew they'd be delicious!
No white sugar, I should say. I will eat fruit, and that's about it. Plus the fake stuff.
I know I have a addictive personality, and I definitely need a break from all the sweets we've been eating lately. It has to stop!

so good luck to the two of us! because i will definitely be missing my sweets...

I love PB-cups! even though here in Israel I'm considered a weirdo for liking PB with chocolate... but what do they know ?!!
