Homemade Peanut Butter Cups

My favorite candy and ice cream flavor is chocolate & peanut butter, so when I came across this easy recipe...I was so excited. So here's the recipe just in time for Halloween and the upcoming Holidays...

1 pound milk chocolate
1 cup creamy peanut butter
2⁄3 cup confectioners' sugar
1⁄4 teaspoon salt

Finely chop the chocolate. Melt slowly over a double boiler until smooth.

Use a small spoon or pastry brush to coat small peanut butter molds or mini muffin cups with chocolate.

Refrigerate for about 30 minutes to let the chocolate set.

Combine peanut butter, confectioners' sugar, and salt in a bowl. Spoon the mixture into the cups, filling to just below the top of the cups. Cover the peanut butter mixture with the remaining tempered chocolate. Use an offset spatula to smooth the tops.

Refrigerate peanut-butter cups until set (about 1 hour) before removing them from molds.

I SO did not need to see this today, after I swore that I am off the Reese's until next halloween!

But since these aren't technically Reese's...
And since it looks like a fun project to do with the boy...
