Homemade Peanut Butter Cups

Peanut butter mixture
1 c. creamy peanut butter, divided
4 1/2 tsp. butter, softened
1/2 c. confectioners sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
2 c. (12 oz) semisweet chocolate chips
4 milk chocolate candy bars (1.55 oz. each), coarsely chopped (I used 2 regular sized Cadbury bars)

In a small bowl, combine 1/2 c. peanut butter, butter, confectioners sugar, and salt until smooth. Set aside.

In a pot over low heat, melt the chocolate chips, candy bars, and remaining peanut butter; stir continually until smooth.

Finished product. Mmmmmm!
Drop teaspoonfuls of chocolate mixture into paper-lined miniature muffin cups (I put Crisco in the cups since I didn't have paper liners). Top each with a scant teaspoonful of peanut butter mixture; top with another teaspoonful of chocolate mixture. Refrigerate until set. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 2-3 dozen, depending on how big you make the butter cups. =)
