Homemade Peanut Butter Cups
Total TimePrep: 20 min. + chilling
These are dangerous! My family all agreed they tasted better than Reese's peanut butter cups -- our favorite candy! This recipe was easy to follow and perfect as written but I tried some variations. I made them regular muffin sized and another time, I substituted white candy melts for the regular chocolate coating. Make these at your own risk!
John Harvey Kellogg was not the inventor of peanut butter. The credit goes to Marcellus Gilmore Edson, who obtained the first patent for peanut butter in 1884. Fourteen years later, Kellogg was granted a patent for a slight variation on Edson's original process.
This is similar to a recipe I make. I found the recipe years ago but I don't care for peanut butter. So I simply use marshmallow cream and whip it up in the mixer and then continue with the recipe replacing the peanut butter with the marshmallow cream. These make great mallow cups. I keep the recipes ingredients around for when I get the taste for some chocolate. I make them in a regular cupcake pan and then wrap and take them to church for others so I don't pig out on them
Could milk chocolate chips be used instead of the milk chocolate bars?
We made these today with our daughter. It was an excellent recipe!
Looks great! Haven’t made them yet but was wondering if natural peanut butter will work. That’s all I buy these days but would love to make these and don’t want to ruin them. Thanks!
Was a hit with everyone who tried them. They are better than R-----!
Love this recipe but I melted the chocolate on my stove, I’m not good with the microwave. My husband absolutely loved these his opinion is “They’re better than the ones you buy in the store”! This will be a staple in my cookie trays from now on
This is a good recipe, very similar to mine. I use paper candy cups so the candy doesn't stick.
these are so easy to make! I put the chocolate in a freezer bag and cut off the tip it works great for putting the chocolate into the liners without making a mess. I also double the filling for more peanut butter inside the candys.
