peanut butter cups

Lord knows I love a peanut butter cup. I found this recipe and decided to try it immediately. It did not let me down.  These things are good. Dean said they are "off the chain," which I assume is something wonderful and spectacular. AND it only takes 4 ingredients... no baking, no measuring... happy.
You'll need: 1 bag of chocolate chips, 1 cup of peanut butter (about half a jar), 1 Tbsp. Butter (softened), powdered sugar and festive baking cups.
1. Melt half the bag of chocolate chips over medium/low heat and pour into baking cups. Freeze 15 min.

2. While the chocolate is freezing, whisk peanut butter, butter and powdered sugar together with stand (or hand held) mixer. Add powdered sugar a little at a time until it's sweet enough for ya. Then dollop peanut butter mixture onto frozen chocolate in baking cups. Pick the pan up and drop it a few times to get the peanut butter all smooth and even. Freeze 15 min.

3. Melt remaining chocolate and pour over peanut butter. Drop the pan a few times and quickly get them back into the freezer for about 20 minutes.

4. Let them sit in the fridge or at room temperature before serving. Peel off the paper cups and eat it up. So good. You're welcome.
