Chocolate and Peanut Butter Meltaways
(Makes about 48)
1 (12-ounce) package white chocolate baking chips
1 cup (6 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup creamy peanut butter
2 tablespoons coconut oil
48 miniature baking liners or candy cups
Assorted decorations, frosting, icing, etc. (optional)
Combine white chips, chocolate chips, peanut butter and coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl. (If you have a microwavable mixing bowl with a pouring spout or a glass measuring cup, use that instead of a bowl, because it will make it easier to fill the cups). Cover and microwave on HIGH for 1 1/2 minutes. Remove from microwave and stir. Then return to microwave and cook an additional 30 seconds on high; remove and stir until mixture is smooth.
Arrange the mini baking liners or candy cups on a 10×15-inch baking sheet. Pour the melted chocolate mixture into the liners, filling until almost full.
Place the sheet of filled liners into your refrigerator and chill until set, about 1 hour. After they’re set, you can decorate them as you desire. If you’re not serving these right away, keep them stored in refrigerator until ready to serve.
To decorate the candies:
You can make little star shapes with a pastry tube of royal icing. You can also use small pre-made candy decorations (I chose some candy canes). To get the decorations to stick, re-melt a little of the meltaway mixture (if you have any left) or some additional chocolate and brush a tiny bit on the back of the candy decorations and place on top of the meltaways. The chocolate will work as a “glue” to stick the little shapes onto your candies.

They are called meltaways because they literally melt in your mouth. These little gems are easy to make because you simply melt the ingredients in the microwave, fill the candy cups and refrigerate. You can leave them ungarnished or decorate them for any holiday. Be sure to put a few aside for yourself because they will disappear quickly once you serve them.
