Peanut Butter Cups

If you dared attempt the butterfingers, then the peanut butter cups will be a breeze. While they are also time consuming, there is no cooking involved--except for heating the melting chocolate of course.

Here is what you will need:

Peanut Butter
Powdered Sugar
Graham Crackers
Melting Chocolate
mini muffin cups
mini muffin pans

2 Cups peanut butter
1 cup margarine (softened)
1 pound ( 3 & 3/4 cups) powdered sugar
1 package (11 sheets or 1 & 1/2 cups) graham crackers crushed fine

Mix together

Roll into logs then cut into small pieces. I don't have a measurement here. I just kind of eyeball it. Place a small amount of melted chocolate into the bottom of the muffin cup. Place the peanut butter center inside and cover with melted chocolate.

Like the butterfingers, I put them in the fridge for a few minutes to help with cooling. This recipe makes over 100 cups.
For some reason this year, my peanut butter center mix was a bit dry and crumbly. I simply added butter (melted) about a 2 tablespoons to reach the proper consistency....think playdoh.
