Americans love their Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. And so do I! I decided to make my peanut butter cups a little more suitable for my taste buds and instead of using chocolate, I used Nutella (I love Nutella and probably use it too much). So these cups are gluten free Nutella peanut butter cups made straight out of my kitchen. These are so easy (yet a little messy) and super fun to make. Give them a shot!
*Makes: 27 cups
- 1 cup (260g) creamy peanut butter
- 1 package (about 300g) of gluten free digestives, chopped
- 1/2 cup and 4 tsps (70g) powdered sugar
- 1 tsp table salt
- About 36 oz. (900g) of Nutella (I know, it's a ton)
Step 1: Fill a medium-sized pot half way and bring to a simmer. Place a large heat proof bowl on top of the simmering water and add your Nutella. With the heat turned down low, stir the chocolate until it's melted and smooth. It's quite a large amount of Nutella, so it may take some time (about 5 or 10 minutes).
Once that's finished, place it in the freezer for about 5-10 minutes (keeping it level in the freezer).
Step 6: Once all the cups are filled, give the muffin tin another few shakes to settle the chocolate and pop them into the freezer for at least an hour (if not longer).
Step 7: Remove from the silicone cups and serve immediately. If not serving immediately, loosely wrap each peanut butter cup in aluminum foil and keep in the freezer or fridge until you're ready to serve. Enjoy!
