Dessert Recipe: Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

The key to a decent peanut butter mug isn't the chocolate. What truly makes them sparkle is discovering the privilege peanut butter focus. We couldn't utilize simply peanut butter on the grounds that that would leave the wrong surface, and would most likely impact the state of the containers we've come to hold dear. The trap, we found, was to blend the peanut butter in with a few confectioners' sugar and graham cracker crumbs. It gave simply the perfect measure of sweetness with a few solidness to it too to make the peanut butter measures a flawless no-prepare treat.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

(makes around 3 dozen peanut butter glasses)


2 glasses milk chocolate chips

2 tablespoons shortening

3/4 container thick peanut butter

1 measure confectioners' sugar

1/4 container light brown sugar

1/4 container butter

2/3 container graham cracker crumbs


Line a small muffin tin with cupcake liners, set aside. Line a baking sheet with material paper, set aside.

In a medium pot, join peanut butter, butter, and the brown sugar. Heat until totally dissolved, and starting to air pocket a bit of, blending always.

Expel from the high temperature, then include the powdered sugar and graham cracker, around 1/4 container at once, mixing until totally consolidated before including more. Put aside to permit to cool.

In the interim, dissolve the chocolate chips and shortening together in the microwave in 30-second augmentations, mixing after every addition until softened.

Spoon somewhat dissolved chocolate into the base of each one lined muffin mug (you need to leave chocolate remaining.)

Utilize a stacking teaspoon to scoop out the peanut butter mixture, and move into a thick circle (you need it to fit agreeably into the muffin tins without truly touching the edges) for each one mug in the smaller than normal muffin cup. Once completed with the greater part of the peanut butter mixture, refrigerate both the muffin tins and the peanut butter for 30 minutes.

Place a peanut butter patty into each one lined up in the tin, then utilize a scoop or a spoon to include more softened chocolate top (you'll presumably need to re-soften the chocolate in the microwave for a couple of more 30 second blasts). Verify the chocolate goes over and around every patty.

Refrigerate again for 30 minutes, then serve! Store in the ice chest or cooler.
