    I’ve been experimenting but I haven’t found a good chocolate to peanut butter ratio for my liking. I prefer more chocolate over peanut butter.

    This is a easy recipe Laura. We love to eat chocolate peanut butter cups so we need to try to make our own. I would have never thought to use chocolate chips!

    My kids will LOVE you for this. They LOVE PB, seriously. All three eat it right out of jar. The two year old had GLOVES of PB the other morning … yeah I fell asleep on the recliner on accident for a little while and woke up to that… bad mama!

    I found putting Graham Crackers mixed into the Peanut butter makes it much more like the real thing, but my husband Loves them 🙂
    I’ll have to make more for him soon – the plastic mold thing is a great idea- My grandma just gave me one of those.

    Hi Laura – where can I buy the molds? Are they reusable?

    Ran across this through StumbleUpon and so glad I did! My husband loves peanut butter cups and I never knew they were so easy to make (at least you make them look easy!). I’m excited to try this recipe as soon as I find a good mold. Yum!

    Wonder how they would turn out with Soy Butter, since we can have peanuts in the house. Hmmm…..

    I love playing with melted chocolate and molds! I love popping them out too lol

    the REAL peanut butter cups have powdered sugar mixed into the peanut butter to make it more like a fondant instead of mushy peanut butter. if you use half a cup of PB use 1/4 cup of powdered sugar. and @Virginia from That Bald Chick can you have Sunbutter in your house? I have tried this with crunchy sunflower seed butter and they came out amazing!!! I bet almond butter would be great too.
