Sugartown Sweets is 3 and How To Make 3 Ingredient Salted Caramel and Peanut Butter Cups!


 Three Ingredient Salted Caramel & Peanut Butter Cups!

I'm so excited to share these with you on this fun day.


Sugartown Sweets is 3!

I remember how nervous I was putting together my very first post. I think it took me three days to figure everything out just enough to get it online.
When the moment finally came and I got to click "publish", I sat there waiting to see how many "hits" I would receive. Hahaha! 
The only hits I was getting were my own from checking every five seconds to see how many hits I was getting. Still cracks me up..mostly because I'm still checking.

Lol..I know..I have a problem.

But you won't have any problem with these.
My candy cups are super easy and tasty too!
 Peanut Butter, Salted Caramel and Chocolate.
Use any chocolate you like. 
I just happen to like Ghirardelli's dark candy melts.
 These are actually Christmas baking cups.
They look like circus tents to me!
 I popped my peanut butter in the microwave for about 30 seconds and then poured in the caramel. Stir together to mix.
 You can almost smell the caramel..
 Melt chocolate over low heat. 
Pour a small amount into mini baking cup. Using a food safe paintbrush, paint up the sides of the cup. I placed mine in a mini muffin tin to allow for more control.

Let chocolate sit to harden. You could also pop these into the frig to quicken this step.

Spoon or pipe peanut butter mixture into the chocolate cups.

Cover cups with remaining chocolate.

Now see if you can wait long enough for the chocolate to set before you try one!
 Salted Caramel & Peanut Butter Cups Recipe

Smucker's Salted Caramel Topping (11.5 oz jar)
1 cup peanut butter
2 12 oz. bags chocolate candy melts 

Prepare your chocolate cups.
Melt chocolate. Pour a small amount into mini baking cup. Using a food safe paintbrush, paint up the sides of mini baking cups. Let sit until candy hardens or pop into frig for a few minutes.

In a small microwave safe bowl, soften peanut butter in microwave oven for about 30 seconds. Pour jar of caramel topping over peanut butter and stir to mix.

Pipe or spoon mixture into chocolate cups. Cover cups with remaining chocolate.
Let sit till candy hardens or again you can pop these in frig for a few minutes.

24 ounces of chocolate is enough to complete 36 candy cups.
