Its been a busy week in the test kitchen
Good bye wheat hello rye . I immensely enjoy my rye crackers these days and have started to get a lil creative . This week I did a bbq pork on a rye cracker with melted cheese . Deeelicious . * always check bbq sauce for modified cornstarch
Next attempt was home made chips . I must admit that they didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped but I still ate them . Maybe next time I'll use the trusted russet instead of the yukon gold .Thicker slices may have been better as well . Thats wha=y its called a test kitchen .
These were my favorites ... home made peanut butter cups . YUM ! Sooo simple . Thank you pattycakes.ca . Her recipe was for almond butter cups which I have yet to find almond butter I like but the regular peanut butter worked well .The light sprinkle of salt on the top really made the dark chocolate just that much better .
1/2 c smooth peanut butter
about 2 Tbsp icing sugar
pinch of fine sea salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup high quality dark chocolate chips, or high quality dark chocolate broken into pieces (50-70% cocoa)
more sea salt for sprinkling on top
medium muffin liners/papers
Mix peanut butter , icing , sea salt and vanilla together for a paste .
Melt your chocolate in a double boiler or the microwave .
Line the bottom of your paper liners with a layer of chocolate .
Roll the peanut butter paste into a ball and slightly flatten and place on top of chocolate layer in the liner.
Once all the peanut butter has been placed pour the rest of the melted on the top fully covering the peanut butter .
Sprinkle a little amount of salt on top . The will enhance the dark chocolate .
Place in fridge until hard .
