  1. Line 2 x 12-holed mini muffin trays with mini paper cases. Put both the dark and milk chocolate into a small bowl and melt in the microwave in 10-15 second bursts, stirring every so often, (or melt over a pan of gently simmering water, making sure the bottom of the bowl doesn’t touch the water). Spoon a little of the melted chocolate into each paper case, so that it comes a little way up the sides, then chill until firm - the remaining chocolate will be used as the topping.
  2. Meanwhile mix together the peanut butter, icing sugar, butter and vanilla extract until well combined. Once the chocolate in the base of the paper cases has set, top with small spoonfuls of the peanut butter mixture, flattening the surface slightly with the back of the spoon.
  3. Gently remelt the chocolate and spoon over the peanut butter, so that the cases are full and the peanut butter is completely covered. Bang the tray to settle the mixture, then sprinkle over some chopped peanuts. Chill for 30 mins or until set.
