Homemade Peanut Butter Cups!!

Another great recipe to add to your holiday fun!

• 8 oz creamy or crunchy peanut butter
• 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
• ½ stick of butter – room temperature
• Chocolate pieces/chips/chunks (your preference)
Combine the peanut butter, sugar and butter to form a stiff mixture. Roll into logs approximately ½ inch in diameter, place on a tray covered in wax paper and refrigerate until firm. Slice into discs.

Melt chocolate, either in the microwave or a double boiler and pour or spoon into a squeeze bottle. Line a candy tin or small muffin tin with paper cups. Squeeze a small amount of chocolate into the cup, place a peanut butter disc in the cup, followed by more chocolate. When tray is full, tamp on the counter until chocolate is settled and then refrigerate the cups until the chocolate is firm again.
Remove from refrigerator and place in an airtight container. Enjoy!
