Homemade Peanut Butter Cups
I'm eating one of these melty amazing cups right now! I think I even got some chocolate on my laptop- worth it! Thanks for everybody who stopped by my table at the boutique, check back often for more yummy recipes you can make with your kids. Coordinate your peanut butter cups with the holidays. Add pink heart sprinkles for Valentines, the little red and green trees for Christmas, orange and black for Halloween . . . you get the idea. I used multi-color sprinkles for an all occasion party. Enjoy!

1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup creamy peanut butter, divided
1 TB butter, softened
4 Hershey's milk chocolate candy bars
Break Hershey's bar into pieces and combine pieces, chocolate chips and 1/2 cup peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl. Melt in the microwave, stir until smooth.
In another bowl stir together 1/2 cup peanut butter, powdered sugar and butter until smooth. Roll into 48 tiny balls.
Line a mini muffin tin with mini muffin paper cups. Drop a teaspoonful of chocolate in each muffin cup. Fill each cup with a ball of peanut butter. Top with another teaspoonful of chocolate, enough to cover the peanut butter. Decorate with sprinkles. Refrigerate for 20-30 minutes until set.
