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
Land O Lakes® Butter
1/2 cup
chunky peanut butter
1 cup
powdered sugar
2/3 cup
graham cracker crumbs

Directions

  1. Combine chocolate chips and shortening in 1-quart saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until melted and smooth (3-5 minutes).
  2. 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.
  3. Combine butter and peanut butter in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until melted (4-6 minutes). Stir in powdered sugar and graham cracker crumbs. Press about 1/2 tablespoon filling into each chocolate cup.
  4. 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.

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!
