Homemade Peanut Butter Cups

 

Now that Halloween has come and gone, I’m still craving peanut butter cups.  Here’s a way to make them at home:

 

What You Will Need:

–   1 ½ cups of milk chocolate

–   1 cup of peanut butter

–   ½ cup of powdered sugar

–   ¼ tsp of salt

–   12 cupcake liners (medium size works best)

 

What You Will Need to do:

1.   Melt the milk chocolate in the microwave.  Put on the heat on 30 second intervals, stirring each time.  This should take a couple of minutes, depending on your microwave.

 

2.   Place the cupcake liners in a muffin tray.  Fill each liner 1/3 of the way with chocolate.

 

3.   In a separate bowl, mix the peanut butter, powdered sugar and salt together.

 

4.   With a spoon, place little balls of the peanut butter mixture on top of the chocolate in the cupcake liners.

 

5.   Now fill the liners up with more chocolate so that the peanut butter is covered.  You may have to warm up the chocolate again in the microwave.

 

6.   Now let the peanut butter cups sit so that everything will settle.  If you want to hurry up the process, place in the refrigerator for about half an hour.

 

Enjoy!
