What's Another Pound or Two?

You really should make these. They're super easy and take very little time. And they're wicked good besides...

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

1 (11.5 ounce) package chocolate chips
1 cup peanut butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup confectioners sugar
Small paper candy cups (they're about half the size of regular muffin cups)

  • Place ½ of the chocolate chips in a microwave safe container.
  • Microwave for 2 minutes, stirring after each minute.
  • Spoon some melted chocolate into muffin cups and, with a spoon, draw the chocolate up the sides of the cups until evenly coated. Cool in the refrigerator until firm.
  • In a small bowl, mix together peanut butter, confectioners sugar, and salt. Work lightly by hand until it forms a smooth dough.
  • Pinch about a teaspoon of dough and roll into a ball. Flatten a little and put into the chocolate cups.
  • Melt the remaining chocolate, spoon over peanut butter and spread to edges of cups.
These are just so darned good, I'll never buy Reeses again.
