Nutty White Chocolate Cups

  • dessertsRecipe
  • I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter yesterday! We sure did. We went to an amazing church service, then Chris and I got to spend the day relaxing and spending some sweet time together. Did I mention that he’s the best?! Well, he is!

    While our yummy scalloped potato gratin was baking away, I had time to melt some white chocolate, assemble these little treats and pop them in the fridge. After lunch, voila! Little cups of deliciousness! I tried these with two kinds of nuts, party peanuts and of course, macadamia nuts (a classic combination). These reminded me of white chocolate Reece’s peanut butter cups, only with a CRUNCH!

    Nutty White Chocolate Cups
    These are so simple and nearly impossible to mess up. Also, the combination possibilities are endless! Different types of nuts, different chocolates, just go crazy!

    Nutty White Chocolate Cups 
    6 oz white chocolate baking squares, roughly chopped
    Handful of salted macadamia nuts, roughly chopped
    Handful of salted, party peanuts
    12 Mini cupcake wrappers (or the big ones….if you dare!)
    Line cupcake pan with liners. Melt the white chocolate in a microwave safe bowl for 30 seconds. Stir and heat for 15 seconds, stir, heat for 15 more seconds. The chocolate should be fully melted by now, but if not, continue to melt in 15 second increments. Do not let chocolate burn. 
    Fill the liners with a little bit of chocolate; enough to completely cover the bottom.
    Add the nuts.
    Pour remaining chocolate over the nuts. 
    Put pan in the fridge until chocolate is completely hard. Here are the salted macadamia white chocolate cups!
     Wait! Who took a bite out of that one? 😉
    These would make a fun little treat to give someone. Wrap them up in a cute little baggie and put a ribbon around it. The sweet and creamy white chocolate with the salty and crunchy nuts cannot be beat!

    What combination would you try?
