Well this next cookie is an old stand by and was one of the first cookies, well candy, I ever made at the Cookie Baking Extravaganza. If you area fan of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, then you will surly enjoy these Peanut Butter Cups. They are like a Reese's but better, believe me. These candies have both white and dark chocolate, and for extra nutty flavor are sprinkled with chopped peanuts on top. These little candies will melt in your mouth. Mr. Pea lovs the peanut butter combo, so it is hard to give these away as gifts for people, I am sure he could eat them all by himself. Enjoy!
Peanut Butter Cups
9 oz. white chocolate, chopped
1-1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
1 package (8 oz.) semisweet chocolate squares, chopped
1/3 cup lightly salted cocktail peanuts, chopped
Arrange 60 miniature paper or foil cups on a 15 X 10 jelly roll pan.
In a heavy 2-quart saucepan, heat the white chocolate and ¾ cup of peanut butter over low heat until melted and smooth, stirring occasionally.
Spoon peanut butter mixture into the baking cups and refrigerate 10 minutes.
Meanwhile in the same saucepan heat the chopped semi-sweet chocolate and remaining peanut butter over low heat until melted and smooth, stirring occasionally.
Spoon warm chocolate/peanut butter mixture over the chilled mixture in the baking cups and sprinkle with the chopped peanuts.
