Peanut Butter Cups


  • 1 cup Creamy Peanut Butter, divided
  • 4 1/2 teaspoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup Confectioners’ (powdered) Sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 cups Semisweet Chocolate Chips (I used Milk Chocolate)
  • 4 Milk Chocolate Candy Bars (1.55 ounces each), coarsely chopped (I used Hershey’s)
  • Colored sprinkles, optional


  1. Fill mini muffin tins with mini paper liners.
  2. In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup peanut butter, butter and confectioners sugar and salt until smooth, set aside.
  3. In a microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips, candy bars and remaining peanut butter, stir until smooth. (this usually takes about 2 minutes)
  4. Drop a teaspoonful of chocolate mixture into paper liners. Top each with a scant teaspoonful of peanut butter mixture (I rolled mine into small balls)
  5. Top each with chocolate mixture to cover. Decorate with sprinkles if desired. Refrigerate until set.
