This is an excellent recipe! The only change I tend to make is the cups. I, for some weird reason, prefer to make balls rather than cups, so I roll the peanut butter into marble sized balls and put them in the fridge for about an hour, then I dip them into the melted chocolate, set them on some wax paper and put them back in the fridge for a bit. One more little thing... I like to use all natural peanut butter. The flavor is fantastic, the very slightly crunchy texture is amazing, and I have the extra benefit of being able to tell myself that they're more healthy. :) Thank you for sharing this recipe with us!

If you have ever tried the Peanut Butter Cups from the Vermont Chocolate Store you will become addicted as I did.Unfortunately living in Canada I have to get my sister to bring them up from Vermont on her visits home.I had to find that recipe,this is it!As soon as I saw the photo I knew I had to try these.I find these are a little sweeter than Vermont's but that can be easily adjusted.I used a silicon muffin pan and also thick paper liners.I only have a 6 muffin silicon pan so I figured I would give the liners a try too.The silicon is definately the best way to go but the liners were usable also.If you are using liners I recommend a fairly thick one or foil ones. I used light peanut butter and it worked great for me.But I did have to make 1 1 /2 times the peanut butter filling in order to fill 12 cups.I did not skimp on the filling for each cup,that may be the reason ;) You cannot go wrong with this recipe,thanks for posting!!

Wow, these are fantastic! I scaled the recipe down by half, made them using mini-muffin cases, and ended up with about 20. They were really tasty and looked so good. Ridiculously my other half and I were both really surprised at just how peanutty they were, but I am aware this was a stupid thing to be surprised about considering the ingredients! All in all a definite keeper and one I can't wait to start showing off!

I saved this recipe years ago after seeing a photo but never had the nerve to try. Well; this was the year and so glad I did. I was surprised at how easy it was even though it looks (and taste) so spectacular. I was so proud of the end results, and guys - these put any other PB cups (including store bought) to shame. I did use mini muffin cups as wanted smaller ones and they came out perfect. Creamy, smooth center and perfect chocolate outside. From now on I'll be making these every year.
