Reviews forPeanut Butter Chocolate Cups
"I followed the instructions for the chocolate and found it to be too thick/stiff (even after re-melting) to conform to the muffin cups, so after assembling I put the pan in a low oven to soften everything just a little bit. I removed the pan and let it cool, and the next day I found that the shortening(?) had separated from the chocolate and soaked through the paper. Obviously I went off-script but this still should not have happened. The chocolate did not appear to have seized during assembly, but if it did the butter may have been the problem as (from what I've found) it contains water. Just chocolate and shortening should be all that is needed. And powdered sugar in the peanut butter."

"My family loves these. I usually add a little powdered sugar to the melted peanut butter. Since these are special occasion treats and not an every day thing the extra sugar doesn't hurt."
