And the final treat incentive for the girls at church! Homemade Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups! So easy and so delicious, I can’t even tell you how many of the leftovers I have eaten. The recipe is from a blog called “Heat Oven to 350”.
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (which happens to be exactly 1 pouch or sleeve from the box)
3 1/4 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
1 cup salted butter, melted
1 – 2 (12 oz each) bags semisweet chocolate chips (just depending on how much chocolate you want on top, I used about 1 1/2 bags)
2 tablespoons butter
1/3 – 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter, if desired
1 Combine graham cracker crumbs and powdered sugar in large bowl.
2 Add 1 1/2 cups peanut butter and melted butter and mix well.
3 Pour/press mixture into a 9 x 13″ pan and freeze for 20 minutes or until firm.
4 Microwave chocolate chips and butter at 30 second intervals until melted, stir until smooth. (You can also add 1/3 – 1/2 cup peanut butter here which makes the chocolate topping easier to cut, I added 1/2 cup.)
5 Pour chocolate over peanut butter mixture in pan and spread evenly. Put bars in fridge until chocolate is set. Cut into squares.
So it turns out that these cut very well with cookie cutters and can therefore make a cute and yummy Christmas gift!
