These Nutty Chocolate Cups have the right amount of chocolate, peanut butter and caramel or butterscotch surrounding all of these peanuts! Truth be told, we make these all year round! With or without sprinkles! They are devoured no matter the occasion! I just love these delightful bite sized treats! You will too!
These Nutty Chocolate Cups are so tasty! They remind me of a chocolate bar my grandmother used to buy me on occasion when she would stay with us, when my sister and I were young. She always left it under my pillow and made me promise I would never tell anyone. I have kept that promise until right now!
I have made these with other nuts as well. From almonds to pecans! Any nuts will do! Nutty Chocolate Cups are delicious every time! This recipe for Nutty Chocolate Cups comes with so many variations. You not only can use whichever nuts you have on hand or are your favorite, you can increase or decrease the amount of chocolate, peanut butter and butterscotch or caramel chips! I keep the total at 4 cups of chips.
I have made these without peanut butter chips or used a little less of one and more of the other. The decision is made usually based on my mood! These Nutty Chocolate Cups can even be made with just chocolate chips! They look and taste amazing too using only white chocolate. You are limited only by your imagination or taste buds! Nutty Chocolate Cups are one of the easiest and yummiest treats we make over the holidays, every year, without fail!
