Peanut Butter Cups

Servings3 dozen Prep Time – 20 Minutes Chill Time – 30 Minutes Ingredients:

  • 1 cup creamy or chunky peanut butter

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature

  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar

  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips


Line a mini 24-cup muffin tin with mini liners or a standard 12 cup muffin tin with liners. Set aside.

In a medium bowl add peanut butter, butter, and confectioners' sugar. Use a hand mixer on low and combine all of the ingredients. Set aside. If you don't have a mixer that is ok, you can use a good old fashioned wooden spoon to mix well.

Add the chocolate to a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in 20-second increments, stirring after every 20 seconds, until the chocolate is melted and creamy, about 1-2 minutes total.

Add about 1 tablespoon of chocolate to the bottom of each muffin tin, only enough to fully coat the bottom of the liner.

Top with 2 heaping teaspoons of the peanut butter mixture in the center.

Add about 1 tablespoon of chocolate to the top of each cup. Carefully tap the muffin tin onto the counter to help the chocolate settle and smooth out the tops.

Chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour, or until set, before serving.

"I like using pretty mini muffin liners and topping these homemade peanut butter cups with colored sprinkles to coordinate with the holiday we're celebrating. I have made these to fill in my Cookie Trays, given as gifts, and made for bake sales! People can't believe how simple it is to make this irresistible candy with a gooey peanut butter center."
