Homemade Peanut Butter Cups

by 247tasty

Two of my favorites in a cup – peanut butter and chocolate! Nothing beats a homemade peanut butter cups made with so much love. Refrigerate them or leave them at room temperature for a creamier and softer bite. Either way, these sweet little cups satisfy my sweet tooth and my nutty cravings. There are many things I love about these cups, first because it is so easy to make even my kids can do it! The ingredients are pretty straightforward, all of them I am sure you already have. They are amazing to give as a do-it-your-own gift. And because I love peanut butter! I can finish a tub of peanut butter in a heartbeat without me even realizing it. Crazy, right? So this Homemade Peanut Butter Cups are perfect for me. They remind me of Reese’s. Before I was so obsessed with Reese’s but figured why not do something similar myself? I mean I still love Reese’s but these cute little homemade cups are so much more amazing! It’s cost-efficient, and I usually make them in batches, I just stash them in the freezer.
