Homemade Peanut Butter Cups

Pin It!
Who doesn't love the peanut-buttery goodness of peanut butter cups?  I, for one, LOVE them... they are pretty easy to make too.  They just take a little time.  Here's what you need:

2 c. peanuts
2/3 c. powdered sugar
chocolate chips (can be dairy free)
silicon trays (any shape)
CLEAN paintbrush (high quality)
sprinkles (optional)

In a food processor, combine peanuts and powdered sugar.  Blend until right before it turns creamy (so that it's texture is similar to Reese's Peanut Butter). 

I decided to use heart silicon trays. 

Melt the chocolate.  

Paint the chocolate into the trays to generously cover.  Refrigerate this until solid. 

Pack it full of peanut butter and paint chocolate on top of peanut butter.

This is when you should put the sprinkles on.  

Refrigerate these again until they are totally firm all the way through. 

Pop them out of the tray. 

Wrap with foil to store more easily.
