Peanut Butter Cups

So these were actually made before the Smores, but I was too excited about the latter to post yet! I actually made these last year too. My husband prefers them to actual Reeses Cups, which is amazing for me! You will need:

  • Chocolate (chips or bar)
  • Powdered Sugar
  • Peanut Butter
  • Cupcake liners

I used a mixture of Hershey's Milk Chocolate and Dark Chocolate chips. The Hershey's chocolate gives it the "reeses cup" taste.

Scoop out some peanut butter and microwave it for 20-45 seconds, depending on how much you use.

Add a small amount of powdered sugar to the PB and mix. Add a little at a time, until it is a thicker consistency. This is all up to the baker's preferences!

Melt the chocolate in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between. When it is melted, use a spoon to place inside the cupcake liner and turn the liner to spread the chocolate in a thin layer on the bottom and sides. Freeze for a couple minutes.

Using a spoon (baby spoons work great!) Spread a layer of PB over the bottom, thick as you like.

Cover again with chocolate and freeze for at least 5 minutes to get firm. Peel out from the liner when it is set.

They taste better than they look! Easy and delicious!
