Crunchy Peanut Butter Cups

Okay, Ladies. Maybe it’s just because I’m pmsing and crampy this week but these are motherfucking amazing. You have the crunch of the graham crackers, the smooth peanut butter, and the chocolate sprinkled with sea salt.

This recipe is so easy and it’s all microwaveable. You do have to wait a bit while you refrigerate the peanut butter cups…or just grab a spoon…but the waiting is the only hard part about this recipe. I had no idea that so few ingredients and just a little prep time could make something that’s pure bliss. Enjoy!

Makes 8

1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup semisweet or milk chocolate chips
1/4 cup milk
Sea salt

Line a muffin tin with papers and set aside.

In a microwave safe bowl, melt the butter & peanut butter together for 45 seconds.  Stir until smooth. Add graham cracker crumbs and sugar and mix to combine.

Distribute mixture evenly between the prepared muffin cups. Refrigerate for 15 minutes to set peanut butter layer.

After the peanut butter has chilled, combine chocolate and milk in a microwave safe bowl and heat in 30 second intervals until chocolate is just melted. Stir until smooth.

Distribute chocolate evenly over the top of the peanut butter layer. Sprinkle with sea salt and chill until firm, at least 30 minutes. Store covered in the fridge.

    I happened to have some ultra natural peanut butter (omg it was so gross, they took out wayyy too much salt!) and about 20 bags of chocolate chips around that I was trying to get rid of and when I saw this recipe I had to try it!! They turned out soooo delicious! The chocolate on top never really hardened though, just got kind of jelly-like. I promised my coworkers some but I’m not sure they’ll last that long 🙂

      I’m glad you liked them. The chocolate on mine didn’t completely harden either. I think I’ll add some coconut oil to the chocolate mixture next time. That might do the trick and help to harden it more.These peanut butter cups didn’t last long in my house. 🙂
