My Very First Peanut Butter Cup

Do you want a peanut butter cup made of : “Milk Chocolate (Milk Chocolate contains Sugar, Cocoa Butter, Chocolate, Nonfat Milk, Milk Fat, Lactose, and Soya Lecithin and PGPR (as Emulsifiers)Peanuts, Sugar, Dextrose, Salt, and TBHQ and Citric Acid (to Preserve Freshness)”

Or you want a peanut butter cup made of: “cocoa, cane  sugar, milk, butter, and roasted peanuts “?

Yeah, I want something simpler. So here it is for my sugar fix:

1. melt chocolate chips, and 1tsp of butter, in a bowl over a pot pan of boiling water (alright. I still only have one pan from lock&lock🙂 it is kind of multi-tasker now).

Till you just want to scoop it out and eat directly from the bowl.

carefully distributed them into the cups:

then, spoon your favorite type of peanut butter ( e.g., TJ’s salty and creamy)

apply another layer and melted chocolate. Then store them in the fridge.

Be Patient.

Then Enjoy!

Seriously. Because I only have one pot (pan) now. I have moved from east coast to west coast, and all my furnitures choose to stick with hot and humit Maryland…Even though I find my new apt,  without the accompany of my good old furniture, I feel like living in a hotel!!

The new kitchen is fully equiped. however, no pans, no pots, no plates, no bowls. Thank goodness, the second day, a miracle package appeared in front of my door. Wow it is a new pan from Lock&Lock!! It not only saved me from eating tacos every day, but also saved my $$ to splurge a new pan to pair the new kitchen!

it is beautiful blue:

So, with one pot pan, I am being very creative!!

I use it to make rice:

I use it to boil rice noodles and sautee them with veggies and TJ’ spicy chicken sausage:

I use it to make penne with all kinds of left overs:


Better than tacos !!

Just when I think I can survive with one pan, the moving company called and said that the furniture will be here next Monday. Awesome!! I miss all my kitchen gadgets!!

Hope all is well , my dear blog friends!
