peanut butter cups

Hello! How was your weekend? Oh my...we just had our first official taste of fall this weekend here in Dallas/Fort Worth with temperatures in the mid-70s. Can I just tell you again how much I love fall? Today Olivia and I took advantage of the beautiful weather and went for a walk and had a picnic lunch. My kind of day!
I have been wanting to try my hand at making peanut butter cups and I finally did this weekend. They are surprisingly easy to make and turned out pretty good.
 

Ingredients
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract 
  • 3 cups chocolate chips
  • large or small muffin liners
1. Grab your chocolate chips and melt in a glass bowl over some simmering water.
2. Mix peanut butter and powdered sugar together. Play with the amount of powdered sugar to find a good peanut butter mixture consistency. If you want a more crumbly and than smooth middle, add more powdered sugar. Add vanilla extract and continue to mix until smooth.
3. Now grab your muffin liners and place a spoonful of chocolate in the bottom and around the edges with the back of your spoon. Put a small lump of peanut butter filling in the chocolate cup. How much you add is up to you. Fill them so there’s a fairly even ratio of chocolate to filling. Top with melted chocolate.
4. Put in fridge to solidify.

A thought - If you choose to use normal muffin liners as opposed to the mini be aware that these bad boys are super rich and I might suggest only filling them half way.

Let me know if you try them!
