Dulce De Leche Peanut Butter Cups

Today is such a good Sunday. The time is moving slowly which is great because I do not feel like going into the bakery tomorrow! But anyway, it’s perfect. Lounging in my room, with the a.c., bingeing SAFE on Netflix, and eating a gooey, creamy Dulce De Leche Peanut Butter Cups. **Shout out to Carol at the Stop and Shop for helping me find Ready Made Dulce De Leche in the can. (La Lechera, made by Nestle)** Next time though, I’m making the dulce from scratch!

I used Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Baking Chips for the smooth, crisp outer shell of chocolate. They melt so nice and velvety, but dry with the perfect amount of crunch, then melts right in your mouth!

OMG, I need to go eat one now, actually. Excuse me while I go to the fridge for a moment. In the meantime, here’s a sneak peek at these beautiful caramel filled cups!
