Easy Peanut Butter Cups

I made peanut butter cups this year for Christmas and they were much easier than I thought they would be. I used a peanut butter cup mold that I bought at the kitchen store close to my house. You could also use mini muffin cups and liners if you don't want to buy a mold. When I popped the cups out of the mold Rob told me they looked like I had just unwrapped them from a package. The taste was also very very good. I will defiantly be making these again. 


Peanut Butter Cups:

1/2 cup (125 grams) creamy peanut butter
2 tablespoons (28 grams) unsalted butter, room temperature
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (55 grams) confectioners (powdered or icing) sugar

Chocolate Coating
Chocolate melting chips or Chocolate chips

Use a peanut butter cup chocolate mold or Line 36 miniature muffin cups with paper liners.
Place the peanut butter, unsalted butter, salt, and confectioners sugar in a medium bowl. Mix with a hand mixer until blended.
Melt the chocolates in a heatproof bowl placed over a saucepan of simmering water or a double boiler.
Drop a teaspoon of the melted chocolate into the mold, push around the sides of the mold to make the sides and bottom of the cups. Refrigerate for 5 minutes. When the chocolate has hardened add a small amount of peanut butter to the center of each chocolate mold. Cover with melted chocolate. Refrigerate until cool. Pop out of the mold and enjoy.
