OMG you guys, I’m dying over these Peanut Butter Stuffed Chocolate Skull Candies! Using only 2 ingredients, they are the most simple dessert to serve at your Halloween party. And they’re so freaking cute! The detail in the skull is amazing, I can’t believe how great they turned out!
For this recipe, you’ll need a skull ice cube mold. I bought mine from Amazon. The mold I purchased is called the DineAsia 3D Skull Flexible Silicone Ice Cube Mold Tray. It makes 4 realistic looking skull ice cubes, however, I found it works with chocolate candies too!
Quick tangent before I continue with the Peanut Butter Stuffed Skull Candies. I am straight up exhausted. Kieran and I recently had our kitchen floor retiled and our hardwood refinished. The finished floors look gorgeous but there is still a ton of other work we have to accomplish. We are currently scrambling to finish projects and move everything back in the house before our new kitchen cabinets and sink arrives this Thursday.
Anyone who’s lived in their house during any sort of construction has first-hand knowledge of how stressful the process it. I think the worst part about it is how messy and cluttered my house feels right now. It’s extremely frustrating to not know where any of our stuff is. But before we can move our furniture back we need to finish up painting and other odds and ends. We are trying to accomplish all of these tasks before our kitchen cabinets arrive since we are doing the cabinet install ourselves this weekend.
Oh, I almost forgot. Our Airbnb will be available this coming Friday. So I need to prep the clean the room before someone books a stay. On top of that, I’m still making, shooting, and posting recipes. Ugh, I’m stressed out.
Do you know what calms my stress? Chocolate. Here comes Peanut Butter Stuffed Skull Candies to the rescue!
I still can’t get how amazing these chocolate candies look. The detail produced by the skull mold is just incredible. And this recipe is crazy easy to put together. You pour melted chocolate into the mold with some peanut butter then refrigerate for about an hour. That’s it!
If you are short on time you can just use chocolate and skip the peanut butter. If you’re feeling creative you can add dried fruits, nuts, or other flavorings. I tried melting a little coconut oil with the chocolate. Then I spooned a little chocolate into the mold then added 1/2 a teaspoon of amaretto that I had left over from my Demon Juice recipe. I topped the amaretto with more chocolate then placed the mold in the fridge to harden. Since alcohol doesn’t harden, the chocolate was firm but super soft and kinda wet. The chocolate skull tasted amazing but looked kinda funky. I found stuffing peanut butter into the mold worked the best.
The best part about stuffing the mold with chocolate and peanut butter is how the skulls turned out. Some skulls had peanut butter oozing out the top or side of their face. Scroll up and look at the picture above, doesn’t the oozing peanut butter, look kinda like a worm? Or it kinda looks like the skulls are in various states of decay.
This recipe is really fun to make, look at, and eat. Your guests are sure to get a kick out of Peanut Butter Stuffed Chocolate Skull Candies. They add another layer of spookiness to your Halloween party. I hope you give them a try!
