This simple, four ingredient recipe is almost just as easy to make as to buy pre-packaged. To store, place in an airtight container and refrigerate up to 2 weeks.

Yield: Makes 24

Ingredients

4 ounces white chocolate, chopped

1/2 cup smooth peanut butter

12 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, chopped

2 tablespoons unsalted roasted peanuts, chopped

1. Line two 12-cup mini muffin pans with paper liners; set aside. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine white chocolate and peanut butter. Microwave, until almost melted, 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, stirring halfway through. Set aside to cool slightly.

2. Meanwhile, place semisweet chocolate in another microwave-safe bowl. Microwave, stirring once or twice, until almost melted, 2 to 3 minutes.

3. Dividing evenly, use a spoon to layer semisweet chocolate and peanut-butter mixture into liners, beginning and ending with chocolate; sprinkle with peanuts. Place muffin pans in freezer until peanut butter cups are firm, about 15 minutes. Bring to room temperature before serving.

I too agree. It's that secret ingredient they use that makes it good.

^ The 'secret' is only salt, pepper and MSG. :laugh: This is why Col. Sanders got so upset, after selling out to them.

And they use a pressure cooker.

I have a simple and quicker recipe:

Buy regular milk chocolate Hershey bars, and spread a little Jif peanutbutter on the bars. :p
