Peanut Butter Cups

With halloween here already, I thought the perfect treat for all those little ghoulies would be some homemade peanut butter cups made famous by a certain candy company. I don't eat much candy and sometimes I have a problem eating chocolate but I'll gladly run the risk for these little morsels.


  • 1 Package milk chocolate chips (12 Oz.)

  • 1 Cup smooth style peanut butter

  • 1/2 Cup powdered sugar

  • 1/4 Tsp. salt

  • 12 Paper muffin cups

Cut the top half off of each of the muffin cups to make them shallower.

Pour the chocolate chips into a glass bowl and microwave on 50% power for 2 minutes. Stir the chocolate gently then let it sit for about a minute before resuming.

Using a teaspoon, coat the inside of the muffin cups with the chocolate, drawing the chocolate all the way up to the edge of the cups. Place each coated cup in a muffin tin and when all cups are coated, place muffin tin in refridgerator to harden chocolate.

Combine peanut butter, powdered sugar and salt in a medium sized bowl.

When chocolate in cups has completely hardened, place peanut butter mixture in microwave and nuke for 1 minute. Stir mixture then pour mixture into each chocolate cup leaving room for another layer of chocolate. Place in refridgerator for about an hour to harden peanut butter mixture.

After cups with peanut butter mixture has completely hardened, microwave remining chocolate chips for 30 to 60 seconds. Use a teaspoon to add chocolate to top of each cup. Make sure "all" areas are completely covered. Refridgerate once more to set chocolate.

After 30 minutes, you have your own homemade peanut butter cups. Remove paper cup and enjoy.
