Peanut Butter Cups:

I had been seeing a recipe for these peanut butter cups all over the place, and if you don't already know, some of us are HUGE chocolate and peanut butter fans! They were a big hit and although they are a little time consuming, they are really pretty easy to put together. I hope you give them a try!

2 cups chocolate chips
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
2 tblsp. butter, softened
1/4 cup + 2 tblsp. powder sugar

Line a 12 cup muffin tin with paper cupcake liners. Place 1 cup chocolate chips in a microwave safe dish and microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir well and microwave additional 15 second intervals, stirring well after each, until chocolate is melted. Equally pour the chocolate into the 12 muffin cups. Bang the pan on the counter a few times, until the chocolate is flattened in all the cups. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes.
In a mixing bowl, combine peanut butter, butter and powder sugar. Mix until well combined and light in color. Divided the peanut butter mixture evenly between the 12 muffin cups dropping it over the chocolate layer. Again, bang the pan on the counter to flatten the peanut butter layer. Freeze for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Melt the remaining 1 cup of chocolate and pour it over the peanut butter layer, dividing it evenly between all 12 cups. Bang the pan on the counter if needed. Freezer for 2-3 hours. Store in airtight container in the freezer or refrigerator. If you leave them out, they will get VERY soft and messy to eat! Enjoy!
