Sweet Tooth


I have a sweet tooth, obviously. Let's just say it's the chocolate time of month and I had a craving for a peanut butter cup. So I made some.

I didn't have a recipe. I just melted some chocolate and used a butter knife to spread it around the bottom and sides of the mini-muffin cups. I mixed some peanut butter with enough powdered sugar that I could form a little patty. I put the patty in the cup and poured more chocolate on top.

That was it. I let them sit in my mini-muffin pan, so they would keep their shape, and popped them into the fridge to cool. They hit the chocolate spot very well and I only made 6 so we won't be going overboard.

I wonder how you do mint?

Why would you do that to me??? Why? They really shouldn't be that easy.

Flo is at my house too and she is not being a kind houseguest. Lazy enervated mommy.

Mint: could you just order some mint extract and add it to the melted chocolate?

Hmm, I have mint. But I'm thinking along the lines of a peppermint patty.

A friend once told me that the filling she made for her yummy mint cups was peppermint extract, sugar and potato, of all things. I don't have the recipe, though
