Homemade Peanut Butter Cups

I promised these earlier this week so here we go:

Picture is not that great but it was using my iphone.  They’re pretty simple to make and are quite tasty….I used little mini-muffin liners to make the shape and then threw those away when I was done, and it worked perfectly.

This amount made 12 pieces using the mini-muffin liners:

-1/2 c. peanut butter

-1/4 c. butter

-1/2 c. graham cracker crumbs

-1/2 c. brown sugar

-1/4 c. peanuts

-2 t. vanilla, divided

-3 T maple syrup, divided

-1/2 c. dark chocolate chips

Mix peanut butter, butter, brown sugar, graham cracker crumbs, peanuts, 1 t. vanilla, and 2 T maple syrup in small saucepan.  Cook over low heat until pb and butter are melted and everything is combined.  Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes then spoon up 1-2 TB per muffin liner.  Place in fridge till cool/slightly hardened.

Melt chocolate chips with remaining maple syrup(1T) and vanilla(1t).  Pour over each cup and refrigerate until hardened….YUM!!

I want to attempt to make these raw, ie, no cooking at all so stay tuned for that!
