Tips for making this recipe perfectly

  • Use a double boiler to melt the chocolate. This method helps the chocolate melt slowly and evenly. When melting directly on the stovetop, the chocolate is more likely to become a grainy texture.
    • If you don’t have a double boiler, you can easily DIY one. Add water about 1/4 full in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, and place a heat-safe bowl on top of the saucepan. Make sure the bowl does not directly touch the water. Add the chocolate to the bowl. Stir occasionally until melted.
  • Choose a smooth jelly instead of chunky jam. Since you only need a small amount for each cup, jelly works better than jam in this recipe. Jam often has larger chunks of fruit, with make it harder drop in smaller portions.
  • Sprinkle top layer of chocolate with sea salt. The flaky sea salt is the icing on the cake. It really accentuates the sweet and salty flavor profile of these candies.

Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 4 oz dark chocolate baking bars
  • 1/4 cup creamy, natural peanut butter (only ingredient should be peanuts)
  • 1 tbsp almond flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 12 tsp raspberry jelly
  • Sea salt for sprinkling 

Instructions

  1. Line a mini muffin pan with mini muffin liners.
  2. Break the chocolate bars into chunks. Using a double boiler, melt the chocolate, stirring occasionally, until smooth and creamy. Remove from heat. 
  3. Mix together peanut butter, almond flour, and pinch of salt in a small bowl.
  4. Spoon a heaping teaspoon of chocolate into each muffin liner. The chocolate should fill the liners about 1/4 full.
  5. Add about one teaspoon of peanut butter on top of the chocolate layer.
  6. Spoon one teaspoon of jelly on top of the peanut butter.
  7. Fill each muffin liner to the top with the remaining melted chocolate. 
  8. Sprinkle each cup with a pinch of flaky sea salt.
  9. Place muffin tin in the fridge for about 30 minutes, until completely set.
  10. Enjoy!

Notes

  • If using non-natural peanut butter (like Skippy or Jif), you likely don’t need to add the almond flour, because the added oils make it more solid on it’s own.
  • Store chocolate peanut butter and jelly cups in the fridge.
