Homemade Peanut Butter Cups

This is the prefect halloween treat my mom actually showed me this recipe from the Rachael Ray halloween magazine, she sent me some in a package this yr for valentines day they were amazing! i added a little halloween sprinkles to them before they harden up, i did have them in halloween wrappers but i realized they look better with the wrappers off i just wish my husband was back from deployment to have these i will probably be making these again when he gets back!




  • 8 ounces organic milk or dark chocolate, chopped
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup honey








Place twelve 2 1/2-inch baking liners on a baking sheet. In a double boiler, melt the chocolate. Reserve the pot of hot water to keep the chocolate liquid, as necessary.

Place about 2 teaspoons of the melted chocolate in a baking cup, swirling to coat about halfway up the side of the cup. Repeat with the remaining cups. Refrigerate until set.


Using an electric mixer, beat the butter until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the peanut butter and honey. Transfer the mixture to a resealable plastic bag and snip off one corner.


Fill the chocolate cups about three-quarters full with the peanut butter mixture, smoothing the surface. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.


Top each peanut butter cup with melted chocolate to enclose, smoothing the surface. Refrigerate until hardened. To serve, remove the candies from the baking liners.
