Peanutbutter cups

Makes 85 small peanutbutter cups

4 lbs. chocolate
paper wraps (the kind you see on the store bought reeses peanutbutter cups)

18 ounces creamy peanutbutter
1 lb. confectionary sugar
1 stick melted butter

Melt butter and cream together with peanutbutter, then add confectionary sugar.

Melt chocoloate in double boiler. Spoon melted chocolate into paper wraps, then add a small patty of peanutbutter, then add more melted chocolate over the peanutbutter patty. Place in freezer for 5 minutes or until ready to use. These taste exactly like the store bought reeses peanutbutter cups. I've made these along with several other goodies to give as Christmas presents.

Amber, I make a similar candy except that the peanutbutter, powdered sugar, and butter is rolled into a ball, then frozen, and then dipped in the chocolate. Reese's peanut butter cups are one of my favorite candies.

I do another similar! You can get little foil cups from a baking supply house - there was a Wilton store near us in Jersey, that's where I found mine. I'd put a little melted chocolate in the bottom of the foil, then a little ball of the PB mixture, then fill the foil cup the rest of the way with more melted chocolate.

And the 'cheater' way to go with these is to spread the mixture into a brownie pan, let it set and chill in the fridge, then spread the melted chocolate over top; let it set til solid, invert the pan, invert again so chocolate is on top, and cut into little squares.

I have always wanted to duplicate a Reese's peanut butter cup. The guy I work with is addicted to them. I'm not kidding, if he doesn't have a Reese's he starts to get the "shakes" after about 24 hours.

Here is the other post that is similar to the candy I make. Buckeyes. They are so good and are easy to make.
