A great recipe for creamy hazelnut butter cups. These are a great treat.
1/2 cup hazelnut butter (or any other nut butter)
2 tablespoons butter, room temperature
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 1/2 cups semi sweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon shortening
Have ready fancy silicone baking cups for 24 mini muffins.
Place the hazelnut butter, butter, and salt in a microwaveable bowl. Heat in the microwave until quite soft about 30-60 seconds. Stir in the confectioners sugar.
Melt the chocolates and shortening in a heatproof bowl, placed over a saucepan of simmering water.
Spoon about one teaspoon of the melted chocolate into each of the cup. Tap the pan gently on the counter to smooth out the chocolate. Spoon (or pipe) a teaspoon of the hazelnut butter mixture on top of the chocolate. Then fill with melted chocolate. Gently smooth out the peanut butter cups.
