Happy Peanut Butter Appreciation Day! Our favourite day of the year here at U HQ. Is that too much? Nah we’re just really big fans.

In honour of this special occasion we intend to make these beauties – chocolate peanut butter cups. We’ve shared the recipe so that you can too. They’re dead easy to make. The only challenge is keeping the ingredients long enough without snacking on them…
