Found the recipe in a old cookbook. Did a little tweaking (orgininal called for shortening instead of butter) and now it really does taste just like the real thing. So quick and easy to make. My daughter LOVES them. I put them in a mini muffin pan with liners so they are so easy to pack for lunches or snacks.

How to Make Homemade Peanut Butter Cups

Step-by-Step

  1. Melt Butter & Peanut butter together in large sauce pan. Once melted remove from heat.
  2. Add in Graham cracker crumbs, stir to combine.

    Add in powdered sugar. Stir until combined.
  3. Press into 9x13 pan or muffn pan with liners. If you use a muffin pan you DEFINTLY want to use liners or they are REALLY hard to get out even if you use non-stick spray (been there done that!)
  4. melt cocolate in microwave and spread over peanut butter mixture. Let cool completly and cut into 24 squares.
  5. I have also rolled into balls and covered in chocolate to add to christmas goodie platters.
