      Hello Nicole,
      Im sure it would work perfectly. Just make sure the chocolate isn't too hot before using it in the moulds:) x

    Hi! What type of peanut butter do you use ? Because I know that not all recipes work with "real" 100% peanut butter, some call for the spread containing sugar and additional fat and I just never know what to buy ๐Ÿ˜‰

    On the same topic : does "smooth peanut butter" usually means the smooth/sweetened/fattened spread ?

    Thank you ๐Ÿ˜‰
