I know, I know, just a few days ago I said I will forget the sweets and take off the weight that i gained over the holidays. I even gave them a little festive „good bye“ with Chocolate Turtles Clusters. But this time, you simply must forgive me, because for these sweet little Peanut Butter Chocolate Cups, I really had a valid reason. They were, actually, just a part of therapy for the trouble that hit me in the last few days: chickenpox!!!
I know, you will not believe me. How come somebody who is 36 has not had chickenpox? Usually, everyone has them as a kid. And if I tell you that I probably got them on a kid’s birthday party, where I went with my son Marko, and plus, he didn’t get them, then you will probably understand in what kind of trouble I am. I have to sit in a quarantine for days and plus, my son will probably get them soon!
And what to do with boredom? For the last ten days, my best friend is, you guessed it, my computer. Blogs, news, Pinterest and then the same again. Yesterday, I decided that it is time to begin returning to normal and of course, the best way to do that is the kitchen. Ok, I won’t go too far. A sweet little desert just to get back in the groove. And so, I chose the very simple treat: Peanut Butter Chocolate Cups. And as soon as I started getting the ingredients out, I felt alive! And for this beautiful treat, you really need little effort. Ten minutes to prepare the cups with peanut butter, a little time for baking and in the end, just a few more minutes to fill these cups with this beautiful mix of condensed milk and chocolate.
But, then comes the biggest problem. How to try just a few bites of this delicious treat? Well, I’m afraid I can’t help you with that since I ate so much that I felt sick. My husband went down the exact same road. You see, he had immunity against chickenpox, but he did not have immunity against these yummy cups. If you have found a way to fight them, please, contact us.
