Ingredients

Cups

1 (11.5-ounce) package milk chocolate chips
2 tablespoons shortening
30 (1 3/4x1 1/4-inch) mini paper cups

Filling

1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
1 cup powdered sugar
2/3 cup graham cracker crumbs

Directions

Combine chocolate chips and shortening in 1-quart saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until melted and smooth (3 to 5 minutes).

Loosen top paper cup from stack, but leave in stack for greater stability while being coated. Coat inside of top cup with small paint brush evenly with about 1 teaspoon melted chocolate to about 1/8-inch thickness, bringing coating almost to top of cup but not over edge. Repeat until 30 cups are coated; refrigerate cups.

Combine butter and peanut butter in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until melted (4 to 6 minutes). Stir in powdered sugar and graham cracker crumbs. Press about 1/2 tablespoon filling into each chocolate cup.

Spoon about 1/2 teaspoon melted chocolate on top of filling; spread to cover. Freeze until firm (about 1 hour); carefully peel off paper cups. Store refrigerated.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

Our whole family loves these. We make several batches each Christmas and share some. The rest don't last long :).
Thesse never stay in the fridge for long. They are so close to the real thing but so much better. You can also use dark or milk chocolate. Enjoy!
