Not-So-Reeses' Peanut Butter Cups

So last weekend I went up to Santa Cruz to visit Chris (the boyfriend) and decided to make him some treats as a surprise.  I know he like reeses' cups s i decided to try and make my own, and boy are they yummy!! Rich though, so those of you watching calories like me, beware!

What You'll Need:
3 cups dark chocolate chips
4 Hershey bars, milk chocolate
1.5 cups creamy peanut butter
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
generous pinch salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
 muffin cups

First melt 1/2 the chocolate in a microwave safe container, follow the directions on the chocolate chips bag.

Then pour a little over a tsp of chocolate into each cup, and using a clean spoon spread the chocolate a little ways up the sides of the cups.

Place the muffin trays into your freezer to chill.

While they chill prepare your pb mixture, combine the peanut butter, powdered sugar, salt, and vanilla in a bowl.  Stir until smooth, might be a bit dry.

Spoon about 2 tsps into the set chocolate cups and pat down a bit.

Melt and spoon the rest of the chocolate over the peanut butter.
Put back in the freezer to set.

Trim the muffin cups and enjoy!!

Chris sure did ;)
