Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

Two nights ago I started craving some peanut butter cups.  The last time I made them was a year ago.  It was high time that I made them again.

So yesterday I made peanut butter cups.  They were so delicious!  I am including my not-very-exact recipe here for you.  Note that NONE of the measurements are exact.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

For the peanut butter filling:
3/4 c. peanut butter
1/4 tsp. powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. honey
splash of vanilla

For the chocolate:
3+ c. of chocolate chips

Line a cupcake pan with paper liners.

Mix the peanut butter, powdered sugar, honey, and vanilla, adding the sugar and honey a little at a time and tasting occasionally (you donโ€™t want it to be too sweet).

Melt the chocolate.  Put about a tablespoon of chocolate in each cup.  Swirl the pan to even the chocolate out.

Take about a tablespoon or slightly less of peanut butter and form it into a sort of a flat disk-the peanut butter may be gooey, so this may not quite be possible.  Place in the middle of the chocolate.  Spoon remaining chocolate over peanut butter (about 3 tablespoons each).  Swirl pan to even the chocolate out.  If desired, use a spoon to add a decorative swirl to the top of each one.

Refrigerate until hard.  Be careful when you take your first bite โ€“ they are quite hard!  Enjoy!
