    Hi Judith,

    I typically do not fill the molds with that much chocolate, I put a small layer on the bottom and then swirl it around the mold to cover it thinly with a spoon so it covers most of the bottom. And i like to fill with a lot of peanut butter. If you want more chocolate, then yes, agreed you would need to use more bars.

    Thanks,
    Marisa

    This recipe sounded so good I decided to make a version of it, it is in the freezer now. I didn’t have the Hu Kitchen’s Chocolate so I measured 60 grams of the chocolate I had, since that appeared to the size of one of his chocolate bars. It did not make nearly enough melted chocolate relative to the amount of peanut butter mixture. I also couldn’t determine the volume of the molds, I looked at the link mentioned in an earlier comment but the description didn’t include anything about the volume of each of the skulls so I used a mold for large ice cubes. When I went to assemble the treats, there was no way I could fill these cubes a 1/3 and have any chocolate left over and I had way more than 4 small teaspoons of ‘peanut’ butter mixture. I used what I had, but the proportions of butter mixture to chocolate looks way off. Did you perhaps mean 1/4 C of peanut butter? Or more than one bar of chocolate or a bigger bar of chocolate? I know now I should have used a mold for things the size of a regular ice cube.
