Peanutbutter Cups Recipe (TNT)

These taste just like Reeses Peanutbutter Cups. I make these around Christmas time to give as gifts. This recipe makes approximately 85 peanutbutter cups. You can purchase the chocolate and the paper wrappers at a cake supply place or maybe a candy store.

4 lbs. milk chocolate
paper wrappers ( as many as you need, but this makes 85)
18 ounces creamy peanutbutter
1 lb. confectionary sugar
1 stick melted butter

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

Melt chocolate in a double boiler (should be shiny)

Spoon melted chocolate into paper cups, then add a peanutbutter patty, and then more melted chocolate on top. Place in freezer for 4 minutes, or until ready to use. Easy and yummy!

These sound great! Do you form the peanut butter mixture into patties before putting them on top of the chocolate? If so, how much do you use for each cup?

PA,

Mostly the size of the patty depends on the size wrappers you get, and since I got small ones, I used approximately 1 tsp and formed the patty as I went. In other words, I didnt form the patty in advance. I worked on one peanutbutter cup at a time. So I poured the melted chocolate in one wrapper, then the patty, then the chocolate again, and set it on a baking sheet to put into the freezer.

Awesome - peanut butter cups are quite hard to come by in my neck of the woods - but luckily all your ingredients are easy to source! Cool recipe - thanks for sharing it so close to Halloween - I'm 100% for homemade treats!

p.s.
What size wrappers do you use?

Would it be ok to use the muffin cups ?

If you mean those mini-muffin paper wraps/cups, I think that would work ok.
