I tried a peanut butter cup recipe already posted, but I didn't like the graham cracker addition. I feel that it made it too gritty. I found this posted on another site.

YUMMMY !!!!!!!!! This are so good and easy but a bit time consuming. Make sure to sift the sugar into the peanut butter so there are no lumps. I used a spoon to mix since I thought a wisk would get filled with the creamy mixture to easily. I used foil tart shells and this worked well a bit finicky to remove. BUT next time I will try to find those teent tiny paper cups to make them a one bite treat since we find the chocolate melts so quickly and what a mess BUT a good finger licking mess. LOL The biggest problem is I have 18 of these in my fridge calling my name LOLThanks for a yummy recipe I did this for the My 3 Chefs fall 2008 contest

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Set 2 dozen mini muffins wrappers on a baking sheet. Melt half of the chocolate, using a microwave-safe bowl and cooking it in short 30 second intervals until smooth.
  2. Using a spoon, pour a little bit of chocolate in each muffin wrapper and using a small clean brush to paint the chocolate up the sides of each wrapper. Chill candy for 20-30 minutes.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together peanut butters, sugar, vanilla and salt. When mixture has come together, microwave until very, very soft. About 30 seconds.
  4. Once candy has chilled, spoon generous amounts of peanut butter mixture into each candy cup. Chill for another 30 minutes.
  5. Melt the rest of the chocolate and fill each muffin cup once they have chilled. Chill until set.
