The photo is a bit blurry but the best I could do. It gives you an idea of what a homemade peanut butter cup looks like. This batch had a bit too much peanut butter, which makes the bottom soft. I cut them up and keep them in the freezer. Each one is a delicious morsel of homemade peanut butter cup heaven.
Here's the recipe:
2 sticks butter or margarine, melted
2 cups confectioner sugar
1 1/3 cups crushed graham crackers
1 cup peanut butter
Mix above ingredients and spread in a greased 9" x 13" pan.
Melt 12 oz. chocolate bits. Spread over base mixture. Refrigerate. Cut into squares.
Makes 30-36 squares.
I used to make these at Christmastime to share with friends. I ran across the recipe when I was cleaning out my recipe file. If I cut them into small pieces and keep them in the freezer, they last a long time. I wanted to make them this fall to impress my youngest son, who hasn't been impressed by anything I've done lately. By the look on his face when he licked his fingers, my plan worked. Priceless.
