Peanut Butter Cups

Tim Dneen

This is a real no brainer that is extremely good and easy to prepare. It is also extremely versatile.

For Filling:

  • 1 lb. powdered sugar
  • 2 C graham cracker crumbs
  • 8 oz. chunky peanut butter (not, “old fashioned”)
  • 1 C (2 sticks) melted butter


  • 12 oz. chocolate chips
  • 1/2 C (1 stick) butter

Mix first four ingredients well. Form into balls and place into petit four cups. Chill about 1 hour. Meanwhile, melt chocolate chips and butter together over low heat. Fill cup with melted chocolate (approximately 1 tsp.) Chill again and eat!

You can also press filling into a 9×1 3 baking pan. Chill for one hour and pour chocolate over the whole thing. Chill again and cut into squares. Or, you can roll into balls, chill one hour and dip into chocolate and place on rack over a sheet pan to catch drips. Any way you do it, they’re good.
