There’s so much that you can do with peanut butter. Savory and sweet dishes, sauces, main and side dishes. Also I’m a fan of quick and easy recipes. I bought some peanut butter cups from Lidl and thought that I could actually try to make my own version of those. I’ve seen on other peoples pantries this cookie butter thingy. I bought mine out of Amazon, Lotus Biscoff Spread.
These peanut butter squares were so well balanced with sweet, savory and some crunch. I used smooth and crunchy organic peanut butter which was more on the crunchy side and with no added anything, the ingredients has just peanuts. And for the chocolate I of course used best Finnish chocolate, Karl Fazer Milk Chocolate, Fazer Blue. This will work well with some afternoon tea or coffee.
Peanut Butter Squares
- 200 g Chocolate
- 150 g Cream cheese
- 1,5 dl Peanut butter with crunchy PB you get more texture
- 0,75 dl Cookie butter
- Pinch salt
Line a silicone mat/mold with plastic wrap or parchment paper. Melt 100 grams of chocolate in a pot and pour it on the mold. Make sure the chocolate is even. Freeze the chocolate while doing the filling.
In a bowl mix well cream cheese, peanut butter and cookie butter. Taste the filling and add PB or cookie butter to your liking. You can also add some salt to the filling and skip salt on top of the squares.
Take the chocolate base out of the freezer and add the filling on top. Make sure the filling gets to the ends as well as is about even. Put it to the freezer again to set.
In a pot melt the rest of the chocolate. Once there's no lumps in the melted mixture, take the mold out of the freezer and pour it on top to cover the filling. You need to move quite quickly because the filling is set and the chocolate will harden faster.
Once the chocolate on top has harden in the freezer, you can then cut it to smaller bite sizes. If you didn't add the salt on the filling, you can sprinkle some pinch salt on top of the squares.
