Geeky Peanut Butter Filled Chocolate Invaders

Here is the recipe I was excited about. It’s not a real recipe, more like a technique, but it was fun. And it’s so good. So your boyfriend/girlfriend is a geek? You are a geek yourself, then join the club and make these cute invaders, from the arcade game space invaders. They are all dressed up for Valentine’s Day, with white, pink and red colors.

You will need this awesome ice cube tray. While searching for this website, I saw a Pacman and a Tetris ice cube tray, Oh My, I’m in love! You can use any ice tray you like, there is so many great ideas out there!

I made these by inspiration without a recipe or anything so I can’t give you the exact quantities except for the peanut butter which is based on my Peanut butter filled chocolate cookies.

Geeky Peanut Butter Filled Chocolate Invaders

Ingredients
Milk or semisweet chocolate
White, pink and red chocolate
Vegetable oil (optional)

I made a quarter of this recipe :
½ cup smooth peanut butter
¼ cup unsalted butter, softened
¾ cup icing sugar

Directions
Since the mold made quite little invaders and they have these tiny “legs”, I didn’t trust myself to do this technique. I tried this instead and it worked quite well:

First prepare the filling: mix the unsalted butter and the peanut butter until smooth. Add the icing sugar until well combined. Put the mix on a sheet of plastic wrap (do a rectangle about 1cm thick). Freeze for 10 minutes.

For each color, melt the chocolate in a double boiler. If you want it to be more liquid, add a little vegetable oil.

Pour enough colored chocolate to cover the bottom of the mold. You can use a toothpick to make the chocolate reach to the sides (the “legs” are quite hard to reach). Let it set.

Cut the filling into little rectangles (little enough to fit into each mold without touching the sides) and place them into each mold.

Melt the milk or semisweet chocolate using a double boiler. Again you can use vegetable oil to thin the chocolate. Pour the chocolate to cover each mold. Drag the flat of a knife across the mold to scrape excess chocolate .
Once set, remove gently from the mold.

    I love these and want too do the PAC man version, but when I clicked on the link it didn’t give me am option too purchase the ice trays…can you help me or point me in the right direction

  9. Where do you get colored chocolate? Would something like Wilton’s candy melts work or change the flavor?

    Love this! Can’t wait to try it.

    • Yep I used something similar to candy melt! It tastes like white chocolate, you can always use colored chocolate only on top of the chocolate and use normal chocolate for the rest!
