The one with peanutbutter and chocolate squares (that aren't squares)

You might have seen the result of this cooking adventure in a previous post (one of the ones with the things I liked). I've made this recipe by Nigella a couple of times, and changed the original recipe a bit. I prefer dark chocolate over milk chocolate, so I switched to amounts of those, I added a bit of honey and I stopped trying to make the perfect little squares that Nigella makes. I love how easy they are to make and that no baking is required. Oh, and they taste pretty good too!


What you´ll need for Nigella's peanutbutter and chocolate squares:

  • mini muffin liners

For the base
  • 50 grams of caster sugar
  • 200 grams of icing sugar
  • 50 grams of butter
  • 200 grams of peanutbutter (the smooth kind)
For the topping
  • 200 grams of dark chocolate
  • 100 grams of milk chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • 1 tablespoon of honey



What you'll need to do:
Stir the ingredients for the base together with a wooden spoon. Fill each mini muffin liner with a small ball of this mixture. Slowly melt the chocolate and stir in the honey and the butter. Top each one of the liners with a spoon of the melted chocolate mixture. Put them in the fridge and leave them there for an hour.





This is what Nigella's perfect little squares look like. I gave up
hope to ever accomplish to make them look like that.

    1. I tried a couple of times, but the chocolate keeps breaking, even though I've used a warm knife. I'm sure it tastes the same.

  12. Yummmm! I prefer your version too. Nigella's one seems too big (not a bite size). Just curious did nigella put the mixture in a tray?
