Hello everyone! Remember my Homemade Pistachio Butter? You can have it on a toast fr breakfast or you can simply make some Pistachio Butter Cups because everyone loves chocolate right?
These Pistachio cups are super easy to make and you can actually use this method to make any nut butter cups you want because you only need 2 ingredients! Nut butter (here homemade pistachio butter) and chocolate!
I use my cupcake silicone molds because they’re much easier to work with when it comes to melted chocolate but feel free to use any cupcake liners but make sure to grease them with a bit of oil before adding the chocolate! Here, I tempered the chocolate but if you can really just melt it in the microwave or on the stove in a bain marie.
Pistachio Butter Cups
- 150 g dark or milk chocolate
- 10 tsp pistachio butter
- 2 tbsp crushed pistachios to garnish
Divide your chocolate to 2 halves. To temper the chocolate, place 1 half of your chocolate in a microwave safe bowl, reserving 1 tbsp aside. Microwave for 50 secs, stir then microwave for another 10 secs if not completely melted. When melted, add the remaining 1 tbsp chocolate and stir it with the melted chocolate until dissolved.
Place 1 tsp of melted chocolate in your cupcake silicone molds spreading it to the edges. (If you don't have silicone molds, just place cupcake liners in a muffin/cupcake tin, grease them with a bit of oil and proceed).
Refrigerate for 10 mins or until chocolate is set and firm.
Place 1 tsp of pistachio butter in the center of each cup. Melt the remaining chocolate and temper it like you did with the first half. Cover the pistachio butter with 1 tsp melted chocolate while spreading it to the edges.
Garnish with crushed pistachios and refrigerate until chocolate is firm and enjoy!
