The Ultimate Peanut Butter Cup

Are you a sweet tooth looking for that ultimate summer treat?  Try this delicious Peanut Butter Cup recipe that I’ve perfected!

Ultimate Peanut Butter Cups

  • 2 (11.5 ounce) packages of milk chocolate chips, divided
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 tsp of vanilla
  • 1 tbsp of vegetable oil
  • 2 whole gram crackers (1/4 cup crushed)
  1. Grease mini muffin tray with some vegetable oil.  I used a paper towel and wiped the cups in a thin layer.
  2. Place 1 bag (11.5 oz) of chocolate chips in a microwave safe container, with 1 tbsp of vegetable oil. Microwave for 2 minutes, stirring after each minute. Spoon melted chocolate into muffin cups, filling halfway. With a spoon, draw the chocolate up the sides of the cups until evenly coated. Cool in the refrigerator until firm, takes about a 30 min.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together peanut butter, confectioners’ sugar, salt, vanilla, and 1/4 cup of crushed gram crackers.  Divide into the chocolate cups.
  4. Melt the remaining chocolate, if you do not have any left over, use some from the 2nd bag, and spoon over peanut butter. Spread chocolate to edges of cups.
  5. Place the tray in the fridge or freezer* until the cups are firmed through.
  6. Enjoy the yummy goodness of the peanut butter cup!

*I placed the tray in the freezer and then the fridge to keep cool.
