peanut butter chocolates
I bought a cheap plastic chocolate bon bon mold on Tuesday. Even though the mold doesn't work well (plastic molds aren't rigid enough to make perfect bon bons) I couldn't resist the jewel shapes. I made a peanut butter ganache for the filling and dusted the finished bon bons with a little luster dust.
chocolate cake with peanut butter butter cream
So I was supposed to make chocolate ice cream this week, but I ended up having to make a cake for someone instead. Lucky for me, I had a giant jar of Skippy peanut butter sitting in my pantry just begging to be used. I was able to use the leftover chocolate from the bon bons to make extra decorations like chocolate cigarettes and chocolate squares.
