1/3 Photos of Peanut Butter Cups
Kansas A's Note:
These taste pretty close to Reese's, and are delicious! Kid approved :)
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter (I use the lite creamy version) or 1 cup chunky peanut butter (I use the lite creamy version)
- 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
- 1 cup butter or 1 cup margarine, melted
- 1 cup icing sugar
- 3 cups chocolate chips (milk, mint, semi-sweet, whatever you have, I prefer milk chocolate but have used different kinds)
- 1In a large bowl mix peanut butter, cracker crumbs, melted butter, and sugar. Use a whisk if it's lumpy.
- 2I then use my smallest cookie scoop and fill, not quite to the top, Wilton 1 1/4 inch diameter mini baking cups. (You can buy them at Wal-Mart, Canadian Tire, and the fancy ones at Michaels.).
- 3Put them on a cookie sheet and stick them in the freezer to set.
- 4In the meantime melt the chocolate chips. Use a spoon and put a dollop on top, spread it out to the edges.
- 5Return to the freezer to set the chocolate.
- 6I've also used a Ziploc baggy with the corner snipped to fill the cups but find my cookie scoop much easier.
- 7If you don't have the mini baking cups you can spread into a 9x9 baking dish but I recommend lining with foil and when set; remove, turn upside down and cut into the peanut butter side.
