White Chocolate "Reeses" PB Hearts

White Chocolate

I don't typically *do* Valentine's Day.  In fact, Paul and I don't celebrate it at all.  But regardless of my boycott, you guys totally deserve a little heart-shaped treat to go with all the veggies I talk you into eating.

But you don't mind if I eat them for you, right?
they. were. glorious.

White Chocolate Peanut Butter Hearts
[makes two super cute cookie cutter hearts]
What's in it?
2 festive cookie cutters [standard sized]
4-5 heaping tablespoons of natural peanut butter
2 graham cracker squares, crushed
approx 2 handfuls of high quality white or dark chocolate melts
sprinkles

White Chocolate

Get melting!
You can whip up a few of these using a double broiler, a homemade double broiler, microwave or make a TON to share using this crockpot method to melt your chocolate.  Choose which option works best for you, and get your melt on!

This is how I melt! [because I'm now singing "This is why I'm hot" while typing this]
I only made two so I used my homemade double broiler.  To melt chocolate in a double broiler, bring a small pot or saucepan of water to a boil and top with a glass heat-safe bowl [like pyrex].  Next, remove from heat and add chocolate, stirring constantly.  In a few minutes you'll have hot melty goodness ready to be added to your cookie cutters. 

Step 1 line cookie cutters on parchment paper or aluminum foil greased with a little oil [coconut oil works fabulously!] to prevent the ooey gooey melted chocolate from sticking.  
Step 2 melt 1/2 of your white chocolate [one big handful if you're making two hearts]  
Step 3 spoon approx 3 spoonfuls of white chocolate into each cookie cutter and tap the spoon in the middle to help spread the chocolate evenly into the curves of the cookie cutter.  You know it's easy because I'm able to do it =)  
Step 4 allow this first layer to cool before moving on to the peanut butter [pop it in the fridge if you're impatient like moi!]  
Step 5 add crushed graham cracker to your peanut butter and melt  
Step 6 spoon over white chocolate inside your cookie cutter and swirl the spoon around to distribute.  You can add a thin or thick layer - totally up to you! 

White Chocolate

Step 7 allow to cool, again. [utilize that fridge yo!] 
Step 8 melt the remainder of your white chocolate, spread over the PB layer with a spoon and top with sprinkles.  
Step 9 this will be the last time you need to let these babies cool.  Trust me, they cool quickly and are soooo worth the wait.
Step 10 devour one and share the other =)  or don't share.  I won't tell!


Gift them in the cookie cutter to brighten someone's day or just pop them out and dig in!
White Chocolate

I don't care how cute and delicious these are though, I'm not celebrating Valentine's Day!  Unless you guys want to come over for dinner and dessert? =)  I'll cook!

If you're reading this around the holidays, try these too:

    Wow these are too cute!  Perfect for Valentine's Day!

    ReplyDelete
  7. haha the best idea was to only make two of them! ;) Thanks lovahh! <3

    ReplyDelete
  8. haha thanks Annie! I just don't celebrate! I did a craft project and this recipe for blog land buuut... i just rather snuggle on the couch with my pets in my pjs on vday and celebrate love every other day! crazy, i know! <3

    ReplyDelete
  9. These are cute! We don't really "do" V-day either but if I was crafty or had the ambition, I would totally do something like this ;)

    ReplyDelete
  10. My house looks like "crafty' just threw up everywhere. I wish I had an off button ;)

    Glad P and I aren't the only ones who just dont do vday! Though he did get me a plant one year. that was fun =) haha!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I would LOVE to make something like this for my son's Val Day party at school. But, the pb would be a no-go. I wonder if there is anything else I could use instead? BUT, I will certainly make these for us at home! Super cute!

    ReplyDelete
  12. yummm these are right up my alley!!  my husband and i aren't huge valentine's day people either, but i might just have to celebrate this year as an excuse to make these. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Yum! These look delicious and beautiful too :-)

    ReplyDelete
  14. hearts are in-style year round! whoohooo! <3

    ReplyDelete
  15. Hey Lynette! Make them with this recipe [ http://www.peasandcrayons.com/2011/12/think-outside-box-and-inside-cookie.html ] only
    in a heart cookie cutter and with vday sprinkles! This way its just chocolate and sprinkles so no allergy worries!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Cute! My daughter's turning 7 a couple weeks before valentine's day, I might make these for the party... Although I guess I'd need to buy a lot of heart cutters or it would take me days to finish them.  Hmm. 

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oh. My. Gosh. I am hating and loving you at the same time right now. I am a sucker for anything white chocolate and these look fab! Darn you!

    ReplyDelete
  18. You can buy them super cheap at craft stores (under a dollar per cutter and even less if you have coupons!) and then you gift them in the cutters as a party favor! =) Or you can use a sillicone brownie pan with heart shaped openings and then make them without the cutter. Hope that helps Stephanie! xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  19. lol just make one or two like I did! major portion control =)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Great ideas Jenn! Thanks. I'll let you know how it turns out. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  21. This is such a good idea! Not to mention it must be delicious. I love white chocolate and peanut butter!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Sounds interesting - I don't think I've had white chocolate with PB yet. Love the heart shaped treats :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I ran out of dark and swapped white with my normal recipe -- ohmygosh its heavenly! Def try it sometime!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh em geeeee I love this!  It's like those snowflakes..but better because there's peanutbutter in it!!!  Thanks for sharing and I'm putting at least one of those pics up on pinterest! <3 <3

    ReplyDelete
  25. No valentines day? ... make them in the shape of cows...no holiday associated with a cow :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. haha challenge accepted! I will now be on the hunt for a cow cookie cutter! =)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ohhhhhhhhhhhmygod! I knew you had to be up to something delicious when I saw your facebook status! Holy yum! But yeah, now you seriously have me drooling at 10pm! I need to go to bed...why do you do this to me!!! 

    PS, I miss you!!! xoxox

  28. Jenn, I've said it time and time again, and I'll keep saying it...
    you are a genius! <3
    These are the most adorable things I've ever seen. I'm definitely going to be making them as Valentines Day gifts this year. Thank you for the brilliant idea!

    ReplyDelete
  29. ahhh you're too freaking sweet Em!!! Thank you! Hope you loooove them as much as I do! <3

    ReplyDelete
  30. ummmmm your recent post sent me to the pantry/fridge to nosh. i saw the kale and all the yummy concoctions and then ate 1/2 a jar of roasted peanuts and a fruit leather. Thanks betch! i didnt have any green veggies left! grrrr ;)

    love you like a love song baby! [song. stuck. in. my. head.]

    ReplyDelete
  31. These are stunning!  Honey Bunny and I don't celebrate either...I decided when we first married that I'd rather have a thousand kisses and hugs throughout the year than a piece of jewelry one day.

    ReplyDelete
  32. YES!!!!! Same here!!!!!!! we have a rule - no chocolate/flowers/jewelry/etc.... or even cards. Though I do demand handwritten letters when I'm feeling down randomly throughout the year. They make me so so happy when i get those~!

    How fun!! We don't do much for valentine's... but I'll always take a free reason to make candy :) 

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love white chocolate and I truly adore PB, so this has my mouth watering. I wonder if it would be overkill to use white chocolate wonderful PB?!

    ReplyDelete
  35. We never celebrate valentines either- it seems so forced I think to have to celebrate on that particular day- surely anniversaries  are more important. They look lovely- I think maybe make them in a different shape to prove you are not celebrating valentines!

    Such a great idea using the cookie cutters to keep everything together and make the outcome look LOVEly hehe.... I adore this idea!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Yum!!!  Thank you for posting something that I can eat haha! (Just teasing, of course!)

    I'm not anti-Valentine's Day, but I also don't expect things like jewelry or flowers just because it's Valentine's Day.  I like using that day as just another excuse to have a nice dinner or plan a special date, but I will use any excuse for that! ;)  Martin Luther King Jr Day?  Hey, let's get dressed up and go to dinner to celebrate! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Those are really cute and definitely love the peanut butter middle.

    ReplyDelete
  40. hahahah this is why im hot. I knew I loved you. YouTube the remix , "this is why im cold"

    these look so yummy and fantastic! i love the sprinkles and the fact that you can see the 3 different layers! YUMMMMM

    xoxox

    ReplyDelete
  41. this is so cute!! i love it :) I have those same cookie cutters!! I don't celebrate valentine's day either..i boycott it because i think it's silly & it's just another hallmark holiday :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Those are so cute and they look delicious, I might have to try and make them for my kids and maybe bring to work. 

    ReplyDelete
  43. These are suuuuuper cute!! I like to boycott Valentine's Day too...hallelujah! I figure my husband should worship me everyday, not just one day a year...totally kidding (kind, of haha). Just to extra-boycott v-day, I'd totally make these in a star shape instead...or maybe a balloon and give it to my niece who happens to turn 4 years old on v-day!!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. These are so adorable! I don't really do Valentine's Day either - even when I'm in a relationship, which I'm not right now haha - but I have to admit all the heart-shaped goodies that come out around that time are pretty darn cute!

    ReplyDelete
  45. These are adorable!  My husband would love them!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I'm a sucker for heart-shaped anything so I HAD to go there! hehe

    I need year-round appreciation too =)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Yay!!!! Hope you have a fabulous weekend Shirley!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Right!? so very hallmark! Though hearts are cute year-round right? =) xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  49. shut up you! =) haha love ya! and I'm with you on that! Any excuse to either make something themed or have a fun night out/in I am TOTALLY game for! I just don't do presents. I'd rather go shopping with my husband and pick out something for the both of us when we need it, not b/c of a holiday! =)
