This month for Foodie Extravaganza {Party} I am the host. I am so happy to be a part of this group. This month the theme is Peanut Butter. I have made this dessert just yesterday for our Diwali lunch. These mini cups are just apt as a dessert, one bite, no guilt feelings of gorging on too much chocolate and very light. These are a pleasant change from the normal desserts that are always prepared.   They were a hit with my guest. 


½ Cup Creamy Peanut Butter - homemade
¼ Cup Strawberry Crush
1/2 Teaspoon Gelatin
1 Tablespoon water
100 Grmas Dark Chocolate - melted for cups

50 Grams Milk Chocolate - melted for cups
Miniature chocolate cups
Peanut crunch for decoration
A drop of strawberry chocolate essence

In a microwave proof bowl add the  chopped dark and milk choccolate and microwave for 30 seconds at a time till the chocolate melts.  Then  whisk it till  smooth add the essence and again whisk it till incorporate. 

Fill each cup with chocolate and keep it in the refrigerator for 5 to 10 minutes till the chocolate just begins to set.  Take them from the fridge and empty it till a thick coating remains on the sides and bottom (i.e till a cup is formed). 

Keep these cups back it in the fridge to chill till set/harden.

In the meantime lets prepare the jelly.
In a sauce pan add the water and sprinkle the gelatin , keep it aside for 10 minutes till the gelatin blooms. Now add the strawberry crush and mix well. Place this on very low flame and stir it continuously till the gelatin melts. Take off flame and let it cool lightly.

For the peanut crunch, I used peanut chikki which is crushed with a rolling pin.

Now take the cups out from the fridge and fill in peanut butter a 1/4 teaspoon each with a piping bag. Press the peanut butter lightly with a back of a spoon to flatten it.   Keep it in the fridge to set for 10 minutes.  

Then cover with strawberry jelly.

Sprinkle  peanut crunch.   Chill till set. Then store in the fridge. Serve .. peel the paper and enjoy the burst of flavors ... simply yum...
