Peanut Butter-Chocolate Farfel Cups
This is the easiest and tastiest no-bake chocolate Passover treat of all time!
There is nothing easier than a dump-and-stir recipe, and this is one for Passover the whole family will enjoy. Matzo farfel (broken bits of matzo that you can buy in a box or canister at the grocery store) is mixed with melted chocolate chips and peanut butter and then set in paper candy cups. The size of a mini muffin but packed with big flavor, these Passover dessert bites are as delicious as they are easy to make. In fact, this is the ideal "cooking" project for little kids. As for the three ingredients, the finer the chocolate and the more natural the peanut butter, the more elevated a result you'll get. However, any chocolate and peanut butter you already have on hand will work wonders for sure!
Equipment: dry measuring cups; double boiler or microwave-safe mixing bowl; rubber spatula; 2 mini muffin tins (24 wells); paper candy cups; spoon
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
2/3 cup peanut butter, divided
3 cups matzo farfel
1. Place 24 paper liners in the wells of mini muffin tins. Set aside.
2. Place the chocolate and 1/3 cup peanut butter in a double boiler or microwave-safe mixing bowl. Heat until the chocolate is melted and the peanut butter is looser, approximately 5 minutes in the double boiler or 2 minutes in the microwave.
3. Mix the melted chocolate and peanut butter until well combined.
4. Stir in the matzo farfel, mixing well to coat thoroughly with the chocolate mixture.
5. Add small clumps of the remaining 1/3 cup peanut butter to the coated farfel mixture and stir gently.
ILOC tip: fold the additional peanut butter gently into the coated farfel so that golden streaks appear in the mix. The goal is to highlight visually the peanut butter in the recipe.
6. Spoon the mixture into the paper cups so that they are heaping and crowning.
7. Sprinkle with kosher salt. Chill in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes until set.
8. Store in an airtight container at room temperature, or in the freezer or refrigerator for up to one week.
Makes 2 dozen treats.
