Peanut Butter Cups
1 c. creamy peanut butter, divided
4.5 tsp. butter, softened
3/4 c. powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups (12 oz) semisweet chocolate chips
4 milk chocolate candy bars (1.55 oz each), coarsely chopped
In small bowl, combine 1/2 cup peanut butter, butter, powdered sugar and salt until smooth; set aside.
In a small microwaveable bowl, combine the chocolate chips, candy bars and remaining peanut butter; microwave for 1 minutes on high. Stir. Microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring between until smooth.
Drop teaspoonfuls of warmed chocolate mixture into paper-lined mini muffin cups. Top each with a scant teaspoonful of peanut butter/sugar mixture; top with another teaspoonful of chocolate mixture.
Refrigerate until set (a couple of hours is plenty). Transfer to airtight container or gallon-size zip bag. I store them in the fridge to keep them from melting.
