Mixing it Up: Inside Out Peanut Butter Cups for Serious Eats

Chocolate peanut butter cups are undoubtedly one of the finer things in life.

But I have my reservations about the construction: the chocolate gets your hands messy and there never seems to be enough peanut butter.

So what would happen if you turned a peanut butter cup inside-out? To find out, I started by using a peanut butter bar cookie crust recipe for the outer shell, then filled them with a peanut butter fudge mixture, thus increasing the peanut butter-to-chocolate ratio dramatically.

While the crumbly nature of the crust doesn't make them much neater to eat, taste-wise, it's a whole new ballgame. It's like the fudgy center is getting a big peanut butter bear hug from the cookie coating. And it's delicious.

Chocolate and pb is really my favorite flavor combo, and somehow there's never enough pb for my palette. This is genius...just pure genius.

Thanks for letting me sample one, Jessie! It was delicious! You know what make it awesomer? Chocolate drizzle. :P

The author of The System webcomic thought of an alternative way to consume cupcakes. It's a pretty funny and interesting idea, and I thought you might wanna take a look.
