Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 10-ounce bag dark chocolate chips (semisweet or milk chocolate could be substituted for the dark chocolate chips)
  • 1 tablespoon maldon sea salt

Preparation

1. Place the peanut butter and powdered sugar in a bowl and stir to combine.

2. Place the chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and melt for 90 seconds, stirring halfway through until smooth.

3. Place 1 heaping teaspoon of the melted chocolate into small paper liners in a mini-muffin tin and refrigerate for at least 10 minutes.

4. While the chocolate cools, roll 1 teaspoon of the peanut butter mixture into a ball and then flatten into a disk. Repeat with the rest of the peanut butter.

5. When the chocolate has cooled, place a peanut butter disk in each cup on top of the refrigerated chocolate mixture.

6. Top cups with the remaining melted chocolate to cover and finish with a few flakes of fleur de sel. Refrigerate until set.

6. Peel the papers off and eat!
