Peanut Butter Cups

Photo (48)So simple….keep them in the fridge on summer days. I got this one from Top Secret Recipes, and there are lots of versions, but this one is the simplest.

Homemade Peanut Butter Cups

24 mini muffin tins

2 -12 oz packages milk chocolate chips (I use Hershey’s)

2 c peanut butter

1 c powdered sugar

1/2 t salt


Melt the chocolate using 15 second increments in the microwave. Spoon the chocolate into the muffin cups, shoring it up the sides, and place in the fridge while mixing the remaining ingredients.

Mix the peanut butter, powdered sugar and salt and spoon on top of the chocolate cups, patting down slightly as you go. You could microwave the peanut butter mixture to soften slightly, but I don’t need to.

You may need to melt the leftover chocolate to keep it soft, and spoon it over the tops of the peanut butter, sealing the chocolate to the sides. Refrigerate the peanut butter cups as long as your family allows!

Makes 24
