Easy Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups!

I found this Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup recipe on and have made it several times now.  It's super easy and GOOD so I thought I'd share.

2 cups chocolate chips (approx.)  I like semi-sweet.  
1 cup peanut butter - I prefer chunky :)
1/4 t salt
1/2 c. powdered sugar

First get some paper muffin cup liners and cut them in half.
melt half of the chocolate chips in the microwave for 1 minute, stir, then microwave again for another minute.

use a spoon to draw the chocolate up on the sides
cool in the refrigerator until firm.
mix peanut butter, sugar, and salt together

spoon into cups
melt remaining chocolate and put over top
spread to the edges
let cool until firm...then EAT!

The paper comes off well with a tiny bit of work, but worth it for the crinkly
edges. :):)


Yum. Yum. YUM.

I want to try this recipe!

YUM! We're making this one for sure- thanks!
Want to know how to make this recipe 10x better??

for the peanut butter part to be almost exactly like the reeces PB Cups:

1 cup peanut butter

2 cups powdered sugar

½ cup melted margarine

5 Graham Crackers smashed (I put in ziploc bag and let my 2yo jump on

These are ULTIMATE.

The graham crackers is the secret ingredient that takes place of crunchy pb and gives it the perfect crunch and texture just like reeces!

I made a batch of 100 of these for xmas/husbands bday, and gave him half. His half was gone in a little more than a day. (And I'm sure he didn't gain a pound...ugh.)
YUM!! I want to try this but I am afraid I will eat all of them!!!!
I'm definitely going to try that!! Thank you!!!

I always want to eat them all too. I feel good about myself If I save a couple for my husband. :) lol

Winner I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days. My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But
