Peanut Butter Cups


This recipe came from my sister’s in-laws. They are amazing cooks so watch out these peanut butter cups are addicting! My husband is always begging me to make them. Mandi and Josh gave made me a couple of fun ideas on how to package them as gifts. Mandi made some boxes out of Alpine Frost papers. Here are her instructions for the short box and the tall box. Josh used a simple bag that you could buy or make and added some of his favorite Alpine Frost embellishments. Here are his instructions.

Peanut Butter Cups
From: Grandma Nona

1 c. peanut butter
1/2 c. margarine
1 tsp. vanilla
powdered sugar
chocolate

To make the peanut butter centers mix all of the ingredients together except the chocolate. Add enough powdered sugar for desired consistency. We like ours solid enough to form but not too crumbly & dry. Roll into balls and flatten into a size that will fit nicely into your baking cups.

Melt chocolate on very low heat. Stir often. Spoon some chocolate into the bottom of each baking cup (make sure to save half for the top). Then press peanut butter center into each cup (there should be room around the edges for chocolate). Cover top and sides of the peanut butter center with chocolate. Let cool. Store in an air-tight container in a cool, dry place.

Enjoy!
