Better Late Than Never!

I was looking back over some old blog posts and I realized that months ago I promised you something and didn't deliver.
I was writing about things that I was thankful for and this was one of them. I was asked to share the recipe.... but I forgot all about it!
Today I will remedy that oversight and tempt your taste buds with my yummy peanut butter cups!

(I think this picture is actually of the caramel version - but you get the idea!)
Those of you who know me, know that I am not a recipe person. I know what I like, and I know enough about cooking/baking that I can come up with something tasty on my own. I'm not big on measuring - I just add until it seems right. So far I haven't had any disasters.
But that makes it hard to share the "recipe" when people ask for it.
I don't think you could mess up this one though. It's super simple and tastes great every time - so give it a try!

Stephanie's PB Cups
1 stick of butter
2 ish cups of sugar
1 1/2 ish cups graham cracker crumbs
1 ish cup peanut butter
12 oz your favorite chocolate bar/chips

Melt the butter in a large bowl. And add the sugar, graham cracker crumbs, and peanut butter. Mix well.
In separate bowl melt chocolate and stir until smooth.
(For this part I like to use baking cups, but you can just make it in one 13x9" pan)
Pour melted chocolate into baking cups until the bottom is covered completely. Add peanut butter mixture and top with remaining chocolate. Chill for at least 2 hours. Store leftovers in the refrigerator.

There you have it! A super easy, really yummy treat for all you chocolate pb lovers out there!

Pin It!
