Peabody and the Giant Peanut Butter Cup…

Ever have so much to do that you choose to accomplish nothing? This seems to be me as of late. Only problem is it doesn’t really work. :) Procrastination is only your friend during the procrastination part…it’s the part that comes after that’s not so great. I’m procrastinating now by putting this post up. :P

When we were in Idaho there was a chocolate shop that we stopped into to get some huckleberry ice cream from. They had giant peanut butter cups. I looked at them and thought, I could do that. They seemed to be made in mini tart pans. I thought I have those.

What you can do and what you should do of course are two different things. :) Making giant peanut butter cups is actually pretty easy especially because I didn’t temper the chocolate because well, I was eating/using them right away. But then I had giant peanut butter cups at home. Calling my name. Oh and to answer the question just how giant are those cups…see the last photo with the Hello Kitty Band-Aids to get an idea.

I realize that many of you don’t have mini tart pans so I thought I would give a set away. So if you would like to win some Chicago Metallic Tartlett Pan 4 Cavity, 10.60-Inch by, 9.90-Inch by 1.30-Inch (3-1/2-Inch by .90 Cavities) just leave a comment telling me what about Spring are you most looking forward to? It’s open to US residents only sorry. You have from now until Thursday April 18th 2013 at 6pm pst to enter. You can only enter once.

Off to procrastinate some more from my real responsibilities by baking something with my giant peanut butter cups!

    I am really looking forward to golf! We just got 8 inches 2 days ago. BOO!

  2. My favorite part of Spring is the Cherry Blossoms. It’s
    just so gorgeous!

  3. I’m looking forward to Spring for the cherries, especially proper tart cherries for pies which I probably won’t be able to find since I’m not in Michigan but I’m still dreaming.

  4. I love spring because I can start planning and planting my
    garden. Although, here in Hawaii the seasons aren’t as noticeable,
    spring does show itself here and there. Can’t wait to try these PB
    Cups. Aloha!

    I am most look forward to the warm weather. I work at a child are facility and am looking forward to taking my babies outside to enjoy the beautiful weather.

  7. the tulips!

  8. I’m looking forward to Spring because tax season will be over so I will have a lot more time to spend in and by the pool hanging out and entertaining, as well as reaping the bounties of our new garden my husband planted!

  9. This is fantastic!!!! I sort of want to heat it for five seconds and put ice cream on top for true lilly guilding. And my very thing about spring is the light….the bright that just seems to wake up everything. Yay for no more snow.

  10. Those giant peanut butter cups look amazing!! (im kinda peanut butter and chocolate obsessed :) )

    What I am most looking forward to in the spring time is the warmer weather and longer hours so I can have more energy to outside, get some fresh air, and maybe even some exercise! ;)

  11. No more coat, yay spring.

  12. Oh my god, are you kidding me? This is like my dream come true. I wish I would have made this when I lived in Taiwan.

  13. YUM. I want!

  14. The sounds of birds again singing. It is so quite in the winter.

  15. I love spring because i start growing my veggies and fruits! I love going into the garden and picking fresh veggies and fruit and just eating them in the sunshine. Nothing is better! I can make some tarts with the pans, i grow strawberries and raspberries.

  16. These look amazing! I’ve made smaller ones before but I’ll definitely have to try these! Thanks!

    As for spring, I am looking forward to the cloudy days that include thunderstorms! But also the warmer weather and beautiful flowers of course! :)

  17. Besides the beautiful weather i always look forward to the blossoming flowers everywhere…also fresh cherries and strawberries..YUM !!!

  18. I love PB cups! I am looking forward to our move next month when I can enjoy my new lovely backyard as the weather becomes sunnier and warmer.

  19. I look forward to spring because it brings out the song birds, longer days of sunlight, bright colorful flowers, warmer weather to go for my 3 mile walks in the park near my home! Reese’s are my favorite candy….glad to have this receipe!

  20. I could use a giant peanut butter cup any day! I am looking forward to spring because our pea plants and salad in our garden is starting to sprout and i can’t wait for harvest time!

  21. This just made my day. Nothing better than a huge PB cup to the face! I’m looking forward to enjoying the outdoors for spring for a the short time before it turns to 90+ and humid. In about 2 weeks lol.

  22. My favorite thing about spring is when all the trees have little leaves. There’s something about that first little bit of green after all the winter gray. Love!

  23. Oh yum, this looks amazing!

  24. I love peanut butter cups and I can’t wait to make these! Yummy!
    My favorite thing about Spring is all the green. No more brown. I get to enjoy the colors!

  25. I heart tulips, tree blossoms and spending Saturday mornings at the soccer fields cheering on my three Happy Thoughts! I love the smell of fresh bark, planting veggies/herbs, drooling over all the yummy berry recipies I want to make, bike rides and feeding the ducks…probably because those are all the things I remember doing as a kid.

  26. Ok, here is something really wierd; I hate peanut butter in any way, shape or form including cookies. But….I *love* peanut butter cups!! Why is that? They just don’t taste like peanut butter to me. Oh well.
    Just sprung upon your blog this month and LOVE every bit of it! Thanks for all the great recipes!!
    NOT looking forward to Spring. I live in the Great White North (Northern Michigan) and Spring to me means Summer is next. Give me single-digit temps over triple-digit anytime!! Luckily, I only have about two months of uncomfortable weather up here, and Lake Superior makes for cool nights, even in July.
    P.S. TY for the give-away!!

  27. Definitely most looking forward to warm weather and sunshine. A farmers market wouldn’t hurt either.

  28. Warm weather, playing in the dirt. Can’t wait to get my hands dirty and watch the garden grow.

  29. the smell of spring air!

  30. When I think of Spring I start to think of lighter food, like different types of salads, ripe tomatoes and fresh herbs. Where I live (in Galveston), Spring is more like Summer in the Northwest. Oh, and I’ve never used tart pans before, but am always finding recipes for them :) Thanks for the give-away!

  31. im most looking forward to open windows, the scent of flowers and fresh air, driving with the sunroof open and sunshine :)

  32. The beautiful weather…although I’m so pasty-white it scares me to see my own legs in shorts. :)

  33. I’m most looking forward to working in the yard and enjoying the sunshine.

  34. Camping. I can’t wait to pull the tent out!

  35. Holy moly! I love this :) peanut butter cups are my favorite!

  36. These would be great to include with homemade goodies around the holidays…or any day for that matter :)

    Spring…..I’m looking forward to watching all my plants grow and planting a little garden.

    thanks for the chance to win a set of mini tart pans!

  37. Jenna K. says:

  39. Caroline Cabrera says:

    I am looking forward to birthdays, BBQ food, and camping! All with family and friends of course!.

  40. I’m looking forward to seeing the sun a lot more often. I’m so tired of the gray winter days.

  41. shandi h says:

    I am looking forward to the blooming flowers, green grass and trees, butterfly catching and swimming with my babies! Reese’s are our favorite and I have started experimenting different desserts in the kitchen and would love to try this with or without the pan ;)

  42. Im looking forward to warmer weather! I’m tired of winter 😄

  43. Becca Entenberg says:

    Spring vegetables, definitely.

  44. Kathy S. says:

    No more snow and being able to open windows – fresh spring air is the best!

    My favorite part of spring is easily my birthday. :D

  47. Rockclimbing! And more baking since I won’t have classes on the summer. I totally plan on making this that is for sure!

  48. The warmer temps and longer days!

  49. Just being able to go outside without putting on tons of extra clothes. Feeling the sun is your skin is so lovely and I miss it in the winter!
