Peanut Butter Cups

So again I was blog surfing and came upon this recipe from It's Yummy to My Tummy. They looked so delicious!! They were messy to make but fun at the same time. I think next time I would roll the filling into ball and just dip them in the chocolate.  But to try them! I already have an order to make them for a Christmas Party next week.

1/2 cup Peanut butter
2 tbsp butter
pinch of salt
1/2 cup powdered sugar

16 oz chocolate (can use milk and semisweet or dark)
1 tbsp shortening 

For filling combine butter and peanut butter in a bowl and microwave for 20 seconds. stir and add salt and sugar. Set aside

For coating, combine chocolate and shortening in a bowl. You can melt the chocolate in the microwave (power 5) or over a double boiler. 

Spoon or brush chocolate into mini silicone cups (you can use any size or shape you want). Refrigerate until hard. 

Spoon peanut butter mixture into each cup almost to the top. Smooth tops by wetting finger and pushing down. 

Cover each cup with chocolate and refrigerate until ready to serve.
