Oh, this could be dangerous.
Like, really dangerous.
These addictive chocolate peanut butter cups are easy to make and way too easy to keep eating until every last one is gone.
I’d been wanting to try out the idea for a while, and this past weekend offered the perfect excuse: a party on the other side of the city, so I needed a dessert I could easily transport that wouldn’t melt during the drive.
It was technically an Oscars party, but none of us were as interested in watching the awards as we were in having an excuse to throw a party and eat food.

Making these chocolate peanut butter cups takes just a few steps:
Carefully melt chocolate chips, and pour into the bottom of your ice cube trays.
Divide the nut butter evenly above each chocolate-filled ice cube tray.
Cover with the remaining chocolate, then freeze to set the chocolate.
Once set, these ice cube tray candies can be stored in either the fridge or freezer, or you can leave them out at room temperature for at least a few hours.
