Tea Party Recipes -chocolate peanut butter cups

This is really easy, you need only 2 ingredients, and less than half an hour. It taste like chocolate with peanut butter filling. warning: IT's really RICH, but goes well with tea!!

Chocolate Peanut Butter cups: (Makes 4-5)

1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips (dark/milk)
5 tsp of peanut butter

1/8 cup biscuit crumbs (optional)
(I didn't use this, but you can put this in)

How to do it:
1)Grease 4 muffins cups with little oil.
2)Melt 3/4 cup of chocolate chips. There are 2 ways to do it, microwave it 30 sec, and stir it. (see note below), or melt it in a bowl over hot water.
3)Then, spoon mixture into the 4 cups. Freeze it for 5 mins.
4)Microwave peanut butter for 30sec. Stir. Spoon on top of frozen chocolate. Freeze 5 mins.
5)Melt another 3/4 cup of chocolate chips. Spoon on top of the frozen cups.
Freeze another 10 mins.
6) Use sate stick to poke the side, and the choco peanut butter cup should slide out of the muffin cup.

+If freeze overnight, it taste even better.

Note: When you microwave chocolate, you have to very careful. If it's too long, the chocolate doesn't melt, it hardens even more. So, if you are not sure about your microwave oven, microwave 20 secs first, try stirring it. And if it hardens suddenly, then use the other method to 'rescue it', melt it over hot water, and stirring it continually.

Note 2: If you want to add biscuit crumbs, to make it not so deadly rich, add it to the base layer.
