I told you I had some more graduation fun brewing! About a day or 2 prior to my cousin's graduation (Congrats Lex!) I decided I needed to create something for it, as I did my brother's. Good thing I work well under pressure! While the process is a bit lengthy, the results are definitely worth it-- I mean, how cute are they!! Based on Bakerella's tutorial, I made my own adaptations to fit my needs (not enough time to order that chocolate mold--oops!) and I love how they turned out. Cute and festive, just how I like it! Follow the steps below to make some for your graduate:
^^Bakerella claims this helps the peanut butter cups from sticking to the wrapper-- I took her word for it!^^
^^Slam the tray down as you pour the chocolate in to get an even surface and get rid of air bubbles^^
^^This looks a bit odd, but since I used a silicone pan, I just pushed the bottoms out to remove the squares^^
^^Using the leftover chocolate melts, I used a toothpick to attach the chip and draw a line for the sour belt to attach to^^
I was lucky that her school (and my alma mater!) had white hats, since making my own peanut butter cups with melting chocolate would have added more time. Everybody loved them--I would deem them a GREAT SUCCESS (said in a Borat voice)-- just like my cousin is!
