White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
Source: Erin Cooks adapted from Nigella Lawson’s recipe for Chocolate-Peanut Butter Cups

For the base:
1/4 cup light brown sugar
3/4 cup confectioner’s sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup smooth peanut butter

For the topping:
12 ounces white chocolate (not white chocolate chocolate chips)

Directions:Place all the ingredients for the base in the bowl of a food processor. Blend the mixture until the mixture takes on a sandy texture.
Place 12 cupcake liners into a muffin tin. Using a medium ice cream or cookie scoopplace 1 scoop of the base mixture into each cupcake liner. Press the mixture down into the cases to form an even layer at the bottom of each cupcake liner.
Melt the chocolate over a double-boiler or in the microwave. Using your scoop, top each peanut butter filled cupcake liner with 1 scoop of chocolate. Smooth the tops of the Peanut Butter Cups with the back of a spoon.
Refrigerate for 1 hour or overnight.
