Recipe: How to Make Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

Chocolate and peanut butter is the perfect combination of sweet and salty.


- 2 cups milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 2 tablespoons shortening
- ½ cup butter
- ½ cup crunchy peanut butter
- 1 cup confectioners' sugar
- ⅔ cup graham cracker crumbs


1. In a medium saucepan, combine the butter and peanut butter, and cook that over medium heat until it is melted.
2. Now, stir in the confectioners’ sugar and graham cracker crumbs.
3. Leave that mixture to cool while you prepare your workspace. Place mini cupcake papers onto a cookie sheet. Set them aside.
4. In the top of a double boiler, melt the chocolate and the shortening until the mixture is smooth.
5. Cover the bottom of the cupcake paper with a relatively thick layer of chocolate.
6. Now, take about a teaspoon of the peanut butter filling and form it into a ball.
7. Place that ball into the cup, and then cover that entirely with more chocolate.
8. Freeze these until you’re ready to serve!
Feel free to use creamy peanut butter in your cups if you prefer a smooth flavor. Either way, these will be sure to please your sweet tooth!
