Peanut Butter WAS and IS an essential part of my diet! If Chocolate is combined it will be FOREVER!
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups were created by H.B. Reese a former shipping foreman for Milton S. Hershey. He left his job at The Hershey Company start his own candy business! I’m sure many are happy with his decision! I know I am!
Homemade Peanut Butter Cups
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 cup peanut butter, melted
3 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
In a medium sized bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar and melted peanut butter until very well blended. Set aside.
Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl in microwave for 15 second increments, stirring each time until chocolate is melted and silky smooth. Place cupcake liners (I made my own with parchment paper) in cupcake tin (I used a mini tin). Place a teaspoon of melted chocolate on the bottom of each cupcake liner making sure it is spread out evenly. Then add a heaping teaspoon of the peanut butter mixture. Lastly top with another teaspoon of the melted chocolate and spread evenly over the peanut butter layer. Refrigerate for an hour until set and firm.
