Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

How do you get the peanut butter in a peanut butter cup?
Actually it's rather easy!

Just spread melted chocolate into cupcake wrappers, refrigerate, then add a dollop of peanut butter and cover with melted chocolate. Voila, homemade chocolate peanut butter cups!

What a treat!
(I was thinking, these would be great to make with other nut butters as well... like almond butter perhaps...mmmmm!)

Read on for the details....

The original recipe can be found Here.
I've copied & pasted it here for convenience only.

  • 1 (11.5 ounce) package milk chocolate chips, divided
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar

  1. Trim 12 paper muffin cup liners to half of their height.
  2. Place 1/2 chocolate chips in a microwave safe container. Microwave for 2 minutes, stirring after each minute. Spoon melted chocolate into muffin cups, filling halfway. With a spoon, draw the chocolate up the sides of the cups until evenly coated. Cool in the refrigerator until firm.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together peanut butter, confectioners' sugar and salt. divide into the chocolate cups. Melt the remaining chocolate, and spoon over peanut butter. Spread chocolate to edges of cups.
