Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups | Quick No Bake Dessert

Here is an easy no bake dessert recipe for days when you need that chocolate fix, what makes this more naughty is the creamy butery peanut butter center. 
It's a true match in my eyes as the bitter chocolate mixed with sugar and butter gives you a unique decedant taste which milk chocolate does not bring out.

Try it out if you also love and can't get enough of the Reese's peanut butter cups, I promise you this one is all the more yummy,  you already know anything homemade is best right?

Here's what you need for 6 mini silicon moulds
(use more or less sugar to suit your taste)

1 bar of dark chocolate + 1 tsp salted butter
1/2 cup of creamy peanut butter + 2 tsp salted butter
2 tbs sugar for chocolate mix
1 tbs sugar for the peanut butter mix

 Start by melting the chocolate, butter and sugar on a double broiler or microwave.

If using the microwave method please do it in intervals, if you use it on full power for more than 40 seconds at a stretch there are chances the chocolate will burn and that will not be a pretty sight.

Be patient and use it for 40 seconds, stir then again run for 40 seconds. Every microwave is different so heat it for more or less time keeping a close eye on it.

Next mix in the sugar, butter and peanut butter, place in a pan filled with hot water to melt the mix and make it more smooth. Mix really well, it must look creamy and smooth.

Now all you do is fill the cup with the chocolate mix, keep in the freezer for 5 min.

After 5 min top with the peanut butter mix, chill for another 5 min.

Last top with the chocolate mix, chill for few hrs and then remove from the moulds.

I never use silicon moulds for baking, but they are extremely handy for recipes like these.

Hope you enjoy these treats, I loved them so much that i shared just one with hubby and ate the rest.

Grilled Breakfast Sandwich with Turkey Ham and Egg

I love my sandwich toaster and it happens to be my favorite kitchen gadget right from my collage days, I always prefer the double plates that have the grill and toaster option.

Mr B and I take our sandwiches very seriously so I prefer getting freshly baked bread from a bakery and try my best not to get the plain old regular white or brown bread, we love our carbs so we are always on the look out for artisan breads.

If you have left over bread and do not plan to use it during the week all you do is to seal it in a zip log and keep it in an airtight box for up to a week in the freezer.

This recipe is a filling breakfast sandwich with eggs, turkey ham and coriander chutney, I wouldn't mind even serving this for lunch with some soup on the side too. 

For 2 large sandwiches

4 slices Sour Dough Bread
2 Boiled Eggs
2 tbs mayo
1 cheese cube grated (i used baby bell light)
Salad leaf
pinch salt
1 tsp pepper
2 medium size tomatoes sliced
4 Turkey ham slices ( i always microwave deli meats for 1 min)
Coriander chutney for spreading
Click here for the Coriander Chutney recipe.

Start by boiling the eggs, they must be hardboiled, use a fork and mash or cut them into tiny pieces.
I use my egg slicer for this. 
Mix the eggs with the mayo,cheese,pepper a pinch of salt. Keep aside.

Spread butter on all the slices and then generously add the coriander chutney, spread the egg mixture, top with the turkey ham and tomatoes. Last add the lettuce and cover with another slice.

I always brush the bread with olive oil before grilling, using butter is also fine but i feel it gets a mild burnt taste as butter tends to burn easily. Grill till golden brown, mine took 7 min.
Once done, allow to rest for a min before cutting in half.

Thats it guys, now it is done. 
It's a killer sandwich, you got to try it.
