Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups Recipe

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups Recipe

I developed this recipe by combining some dessert recipes in my collection. The smooth peanut butter flavor earns rave reviews.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + chilling YIELD:36 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 36 foil bonbon-size baking cups
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup nonfat dry milk powder
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  • 1. In a microwave, melt chocolate chips and shortening; stir until smooth. Place a scant teaspoonful inside each foil cup and rotate it gently in the palm of your hand to coat the sides and bottom. (Use a spoon to help coat the sides if necessary.)
  • 2. Place cups in miniature muffin pans; chill until firm. Set remaining chocolate aside. In a medium bowl, combine the peanut butter, milk powder, corn syrup and vanilla until smooth.
  • 3. Shape into 1-in. balls; press one ball into each chocolate cup. Top with remaining melted chocolate. Chill until set. Store in an airtight container in refrigerator. Yield: 3 dozen.
