Homemade peanut butter cups


Hi everyone, I know I said this last time, but it's been forever since I last posted. However, tonight I am going to have five or so recipes to add, so watch out! The first one is going to be how to make homemade peanut butter cups... in my opinion, they're even better than the real ones, because for one, the price you CANNOT go wrong, and two they aren't greasy at all, which is ALWAYS a bonus!

Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 cups creamy peanut butter (unless you like crunchy peanut butter, however, I am not a fan)
  • 1 (12 ounce) package milk chocolate chips (I used Mercken's chocolate, and didn't think of measuring, but it probably came close to the package, since I didn't have any leftovers)
Directions:

Mix together graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar, and your peanut butter - set aside until ready to use

In a double boiler, melt your chocolate chips (or you can use your microwave as well which works just as well, just make sure you use a microwave safe bowl)

This step, you can either use a pan, and just spread the chocolate, peanut butter mixture then chocolate on top to make a "Reece's pieces bar", or you can take small wrappers and make the cups in there OR what I did was use a candy and chocolate mold, which you can buy online or at bulk barn for about $3.25 http://www.amazon.com/MEDIUM-PEANUT-BUTTER-Occasions-Chocolate/dp/B000EDS064

Therefore, after the chocolate is melted, take the mold, wrappers, or pan and spread the chocolate, then cover with a good amount of peanut butter spread, then cover the mixture with some more chocolate

Place in the fridge for about ten minutes, or until you know that the chocolate is frozen (check the bottom, if it still looks wet even if the top isn't they may not be ready)Enjoy!!
