Peanut Butter Cups

Peanut Butter Cups
These are one of our favorite treats! There are several variations but I like this one!


2 c milk chocolate chips (or use white chocolate, dark chocolate, semi-sweet)
1/2 c peanut butter (more or less depending on how much peanut butter you like)

15 paper mini baking cups

Pour 1 cup chocolate chips in a glass measuring cup and melt in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir the chips and return to the microwave for about another 30 seconds or until melted. Start filling your cups and spread the melted chocolate up the sides of the paper cups. (Don't worry they don't have to look pretty!)

For this step, I use a small jelly spoon but my sister uses a cookie scoop to drop the peanut butter into the melted chocolate cups. I use about 3/4 teaspoon per cup.

Put them in the freezer for about 15 minutes. Then melt the rest of your chocolate chips (1 cup) and spoon the melted chocolate over the tops. So yummy, yummy!!

Love and peace,
