Homemade Peanut Butter Cups


1 cup creamy peanut butter, divided

4 teaspoons butter, almost melted

1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips

1 cup (6 ounces) milk chocolate chips


Mix 1/2 cup of peanut butter, almost melted butter, confectioners’ sugar, and salt in one bowl. Set aside.

In a separate bowl, microwave both the semisweet and milk chocolate chips, along with the remaining peanut butter until melted and smooth. Start at 1 minute and stir, then heat at 20-30 second intervals stirring each time, until melted and smooth.

Layer a small amount of chocolate into the bottom of the paper-lined muffin cups. (You can use either mini or regular size or both.) For mini muffin cups, use about a teaspoon of chocolate. For regular muffin cups, it will be closer to a tablespoon.

Next, spoon a small teaspoon or tablespoon (for large) of the peanut butter filling into the center of each muffin cup.

Lastly, layer more chocolate on top until the peanut butter filling is completely covered.

Chill for at least 1 hour until firm. Enjoy!

Store in a cool place.
