How to make it

  • 1. Cut the top half off of the muffin cups so that they are shallower.
  • 2. Pour the chocolate chips into a glass bowl and melt them in the microwave: Microwave at 50% power for 2 minutes. Stir the chips gently, and let them sit for a minute or so. If the chocolate needs more melting, microwave again at half power for 30 seconds. Stir gently. Continue the process, stirring gently as you go. But be very careful not to overcook the chocolate.
  • 3. Using a teaspoon, spoon a portion of the chocolate into the middle of a muffin cup. Draw the chocolate up the edges of the cup with the back of the spoon. Coat the entire inside of the muffin cup with chocolate and place it into a muffin tin. Repeat with the remaining muffin cups and then put the whole muffin tin in the fridge so that the chocolate hardens.
  • 4. Combine the reduced-fat peanut butter, powdered sugar and salt in a medium bowl.
  • 5. When the chocolate in the muffin cups has hardened, pop the sweetened peanut butter into the microwave oven on full power for 1 minute. This will soften up the peanut butter so that it easily flows into the cups.
  • 6. Spoon a small portion of peanut butter into each of the chocolate-coated cups. Leave room at the top for an additional layer of chocolate, which we'll add later. Pop the candy back in the refrigerator to harden the peanut butter. This should take an hour or so.
  • 7. When the peanut butter filling has hardened, re-melt the chocolate chips in the microwave on half power for 30 to 60 seconds. Use a teaspoon to spread a layer of chocolate over the top of each candy. Chill the candy once again to set up the chocolate.

    It's good but the peanut butter texture needs some work.
    See Reeses Peanut Butter Cups Copycat for additional add-ons.

    G'day Haylee's Grandma
    Thanks for the Reese's PB Cups recipe.
    Everytime I visit USA I buy as many of them as I can because I only have one source of supply here in Australia and because they are imported they are very expensive, so it will be good to make some as a resonable cost.
    Take care
    David

    If you add a tbsp. are two of shortening to the choclate chips when melting them, the choclate will set up faster and have a professional-looking glossy appearance. Thanks far this recipe - its much easier then other recipes I have tried far makeing these!

    If you like the p nut butter part thicker....I tried adding a table spoon of flour to the p nut butter mixture. It made it a thicker mixture and still tasted great!

    I love these but they are almost impossible to buy in Australia - if you do find them they are around the same price as oil!! Great post thanks.
