dark-white chocolate pb cups

My obsession with peanut butter and chocolate is a never ending struggle. One that always has me up at night thinking of what can I add to these two perfect ingredients to make them better or make a new candy-cookie-muffin-cake-what-have you. And then it hit me, why haven't I added white chocolate to the mix? Duh, right? I know a total 'duh' moment. In all the years of making chocolate peanut butter cups I've never made them with white chocolate. Oh I've added cayenne pepper, caramel, cereal, espresso, coconut, cinnamon (very good), and of course my favorite potato chips (I need to post those, they were disgustingly good, and I mean that in a good way).
To make these dark-white chocolate pb cups just follow the dark chocolate pb cups I made from before, and the only change is to add a layer of melted white chocolate on top of the chilled peanut butter. Then chill that layer, then add your final layer of dark chocolate, then chill again and you're done.

Here are some interesting winter photos from my side of the world.

cold atlantic ocean- sandwich marina

Icy cold Atlantic, shot taken at the Sandwich Marina lobster docks. Isn't the ocean color gorgeous?

lobster docks at marina

Lots of fishing rope waiting for the next boat.

marina ghost town

rows and rows of empty dry docked boats--like a ghost town of sorts

wanna place an order?

just outside sandwich diving school. clearly this diver is in the wrong element.

  9. Your photos are amazing but it's the first one that sent me into swoons. Unfortunately, all I can do is admire - no PB for me. Wait, there's plenty of other nut butters out there - there's hope yet!

  25. Fun Post Dawn! Looks cold in your area too. The ocean color is great, so clean in the winter. Love the pb cups, you always kill me when you post things like that when I am trying to be so good. (This week anyway!) Stay Warm!

  26. Funny photo. Am sending it to my diver daughter in NYC!

    Super pb cups!

  27. haha.. i'm always thinking about what is the best way to mix muffin batter... Anyway, those look way too good to be true. I've wanted to make something as rich and decadent as this for a long time, but never get to it because I'm afraid of how many I will eat. I'm the hugest reese pb cup fan!! Btw, the poor man's toffee was a hit. I used regular saltine instead of the cheese crackers though...trying to cut down on the richness!
