How To Make Copycat Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
You no longer have to go to the grocery to get your Reese’s fix. In this copycat peanut butter cups recipe, learn how to make this sweet and chunky treat.
- ¾lbchocolate,good quality dark or milk
- 1cupPeanut Butter,smooth or chunky, used smooth
- 1cuppowdered sugar
- ⅓cupGraham Crumbs
- Peanut butter cup mold
Melt chocolate at 50% power in the microwave stirring every 30 seconds. The chocolate does not have to be completely melted, as it sits little pieces will melt in. Be extra careful not to overheat the chocolate or it will seize.
Place about a teaspoon of chocolate in each well or muffin cup and with the back of a spoon, “pull” the chocolate up the sides ensuring the bottom and sides are completely covered.
Place in the freezer for about 30 seconds to stiffen up the chocolate and you can “re-pull” more or fill in any gaps. (I held my mold up to light and it was easy to see spots where the chocolate was thin)
Place back into the fridge until cold
Mix together peanut butter, powdered sugar, salt and graham crumbs in a bowl
Microwave about 90 seconds to soften the mixture and allow it to be poured.
Place 1 tablespoon of the peanut butter mixture into the wells and gently tap or shake to smooth it.
Place in the freezer for about 5 minutes
Spoon enough chocolate on top of the peanut butter to cover it and shake or tap the mold/cup to smooth the top
Refrigerate until cold
