Peanut Butter Cups

 

Servings: ( 30 candies)

Ingredients

1 3/4 cups NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Milk Chocolate Morsels (11.5 oz. pkg.)

2 Tbs vegetable shortening

60 paper candy liners, separated into 30 double-lined cups (1 1/2-inch)

1/2 cup butter (1 stick)

1/2 cup chunky peanut butter

1 cup powdered sugar

2/3 cup graham cracker crumbs

Directions

MICROWAVE morsels and vegetable shortening in medium, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 2 minutes; stir. Microwave at additional 10- to 20-second intervals, stirring until smooth.

PLACE about 1 teaspoon melted chocolate in each candy cup; spread to about 1/8-inch thickness, almost to top of cup, with small pastry brush. Refrigerate.

COMBINE butter and peanut butter in medium, heavy-duty saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 4 to 6 minutes or until melted. Stir in powdered sugar and graham cracker crumbs. Cool for 5 minutes. Spoon about 1 heaping teaspoon into each chocolate cup.

SPOON about 1/4 teaspoon melted chocolate on top of filling; spread to cover filling. Freeze for about 2 hours or until firm. Carefully peel off paper liners. Store tightly covered in refrigerator.
