Homemade Peanut Butter Cups

Hi ya'll! I got this awesome recipe from Liz at Blog is the new Black. These turned out very well and oh so yummy! I planned on wrapping some of these up for Valentines day, but between me and the hubs, we kinda ate most of them..

Peanut Butter Cups

1 cup Creamy Peanut Butter, divided
4 1/2 teaspoons butter, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
 1/2 teaspoon Salt
2 cups Semisweet Chocolate Chips 
4 Milk Chocolate Candy Bars (1.55 ounces each), coarsely chopped.

Fill mini muffin tins with mini paper liners.
In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup peanut butter, butter and powdered sugar and salt until smooth, set aside.
In a microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips, candy bars and remaining peanut butter, stir until smooth. ( If you don't have a microwave, like us, then you can just use the stove to melt it all.) 
Drop a teaspoonful of chocolate mixture into paper liners. Top each with a scant teaspoonful of peanut butter mixture.
Top each with chocolate mixture to cover. Refrigerate until set.

Eay and enjoy!

What's your favorite kind of chocolate?


  1. Oooh, those look amazing. Peanut butter cups are my favorite.

  2. They are so amazing, Ann! The hubs said they are even better than Reese's peanut butter cups..
