Peanut Butter Chocolate Swirls
These little morsels melt in your mouth and in your hand in this heat. So eat em up quick. They are so good, perfect little desserts of peanutbutter and chocolate, if you can only eat one. I can't. Good luck.
1/2 Cup peanut butter. I used creamy.
2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, room temp
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 Cup powdered sugar
16 ounces chocolate chips or chocolate you choose.
1 Tablespoon shortening
Put the peanut butter, unsalted butter and salt in a microwaveable bowl and heat in the the micro for about 1 min. or less, soft but not all the way melted. Stir in the powdered sugar.
Melt the chocolate chips and shortening in a heatproof bowl placed over a saucepan of simmering water.
Drop a teaspoon of the melted chocolate into each of the miniature muffin cups that have been sprayed with cooking spray. Top the melted chocolate with a scant teaspoon of peanutbutter, push the peanutbutter over just a bit and add a teaspoon or so of melted chocolate and then with a toothpick run it through the chocolate and peanut to make the swirl. Enjoy.
