Recipe: Peanut chocolate

I'm somewhat buzy right now, but I thought I'd share a simple recipe for some chocolate sweets. Inspired by the fact that me and my sis agreed on making Christmas sweets this weekend. No pics of the finished chocolates I'm afraid. We love using white chocolate for this, but all types work well. You can even make two batches using different chocolate and mix them.


Peanut chocolate

100 g peanut butter (we prefer crunchy)
100 g chocolate (milk, dark, light, white -- which ever you prefer)
1 dl roasted and salted peanuts

1. Begin by rinsing the peanuts in water rubbing them with a paper towel to remove some of the salt. You don't want to remove all of it as it balanses the flavour, but it can be too salty if you use the nuts straight from the package. Rubbing will not remove as much salt as rinsing. Make sure you dry the nuts if rinsed.

2. Melt the peanut butter and chocolate in a bowl in you microwave or a water bath on the stove. Stir every now and then so the two ingredients blend.

3. Add the peanuts and stir.

4. Using a couple of spoon, drop the peanut chocolate into small cupcake cups and store cold.

Variation: You could also pour it into a baking pan lined with bakery paper or greaseproof paper and put in the fridge to cool down. When hardened, you can cut the chocolate into squares with a knife. Store in a box with greaseproof paper between each layer. I prefer using cups as the sweets, especially if using white chocolate, are soft and melt easily. With a cup your hands don't get sticky.
