peanut butter cup recipe

Growing up, I always loved the day that I came home from school and found my mom making giant batches of peanut butter cups.  It meant two things: Christmas was just around the corner, and I got to pig out on peanut butter cups.  Both insanely exciting occasions.

Our peanut butter cup recipe is a cinch.  Oh, and it’s delicious.  And addicting.

INGREDIENTS

5 1/2 graham crackers, crushed
2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup peanut butter
dipping chocolate (usually found in the craft/party section at the grocery store or craft stores)

INSTRUCTIONS

① Crumble the graham crackers and mix them with the powdered sugar.
② Stir in the melted butter, then add the peanut butter.
③ Melt the dipping chocolate in the microwave for 30 seconds, and stir.  Continue heating and stirring in 15 second increments until the chocolate is melted.  Put a small amount of chocolate into the bottom of each baking cup (I used a mini tin).
④ Form peanut butter mixture into small balls and place one inside of each baking cup.
⑤ Fill the rest of the cup up with more chocolate and let it refrigerate until firm.

Seriously, you’re going to love having this recipe!

  1. These are awesome!!
    Definitely my kind of treats.
    A questions though – I don’t quite understand what do you mean by 5 1/2 graham crackers…. 5.5 pieces ??

    • The “graham cracker” for this recipe is one big piece with 4 segments. So 5 1/2 graham crackers is 22 little cracker segments. Does that make sense?

  2. Found you thru Your Whims Wednesday. I don’t really cook, & my baking is by a mix, but these i will definitely be making. My mouth is watering. Thanks for sharing!
