Easy peanut butter chocolate pots

Seriously easy peanut butter chocolate pots - OMG. These are AMAZING. They're so quick and easy to make, and they're SO delicious - they seriously melt in your mouth. Great dessert for a dinner party!

Chocolate pots are one of my favourite desserts to make when I have friends over for dinner. Everyone (and I really do mean everyone) loves them and they always go down so well, but they’re so, so easy to make. Embarrassingly easy, in fact (don’t tell your guests, just let them be impressed).

I like to jazz my chocolate pots up in different ways. In the past I’ve shared my salted caramel version, and this time I made these super easy peanut butter chocolate pots. Swooooon.

When I say easy, I really do mean that a four year old could make them (with the appropriate supervision, of course). A lot of chocolate pot recipes use eggs, but in my opinion there’s no need to faff about with things like that – if you’re anything like me, you’ll inevitably end up with several batches of chocolate scrambled eggs (not good, trust me).

Instead, just melt together chocolate, butter and cream, then put it in pots. It really is as easy as that. I really don’t see the point of complicating things just for the sake of it!

Plus, less time cooking = more time hoovering the house in preparation for your guests (the only time the hoovering gets done, am I right?)

To take my basic chocolate pot recipe up a notch, I added a dollop of peanut butter in the middle of each. I adore the whole sweet/salty thing, and it’s nice to have a little surprise when you start digging. I can’t quite decide, but I think this peanut butter version might even be tastier than the salted caramel version. Maybe. They seriously melt in your mouth.

By the way, make sure you do actually have guests coming when you make these peanut butter chocolate pots, or I can’t guarantee you won’t eat the entire batch yourself – and they’re not exactly light. I take no responsibility for any weight gain that arises as a result of these chocolate pots…

Ingredients

Only just come across this recipe. I think the salted caramel version is more me than the regular one. I've passed the recipe to my OH as he's the chocolate mousse man of the house. He can give it a go.

Oh, at first glance I thought that it was a healthy smoothie haha. But this seriously looks so good!

Chocolate pots are my fave make-ahead dessert for dinner parties, especially as you can customise the flavour so easily and serve them up in pretty pots. I've never tried putting peanut butter in, but boy do I have to try it now you've suggested it!!!!
