Homemade Peanut Butter Cups

Even though my Pinterest craft projects have bombed, that hasn’t slowed my addiction to the site. The recipes I’ve stumbled on have mostly been winners.

Here is an easy Christmas/Holiday treat to make that everyone will go crazy for, I’ve already gone through two batches with more on the horizon:

Crunchy Peanut Butter Cups



1/4 cup butter

3/4 cup peanut butter

3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs

1/4 cup sugar 1 cup semisweet or milk chocolate chips

1/4 cup milk

Sea salt

Line a  muffin tin with papers (you could also use a mini muffin tin if you prefer).

In a microwave safe bowl, melt the butter & peanut butter  together for 45 seconds.  Stir until smooth.  Add graham cracker crumbs  and sugar and mix to combine.  Distribute mixture evenly between the  prepared muffin cups.  Refrigerate for 15 minutes to set peanut butter  layer.

After the peanut butter has chilled, combine chocolate and milk in a  microwave safe bowl and heat in 25 second intervals until chocolate is  just melted.  Stir until smooth.  Distribute chocolate evenly over the  top of the peanut butter layer.  Sprinkle with sea salt and chill until  firm, at least 30 minutes.  Store covered in the fridge.
