Melt butter. Empty peanut butter in bowl and mix with powdered sugar. Mix in butter and set aside.
Melt chocolate. Put cupcake liners on baking sheet and mist with cooking spray. Spoon melted chocolate into cup cake liners. Place in fridge for 10 minutes.
Put peanut butter mix into cooled chocolate cups. Then use the remaining chocolate to spoon on top of peanut butter mixture. Put in fridge for 30 minutes. Enjoy!

Mix butter, peanut butter, powdered sugar and graham crackers together and press into 9x13 buttered pan. Melt chocolate chips in a double boiler and spread evenly over the mixture. When cool, cut into squares.

I think it was here (Thriftyfun.com newsletter) that I saw a recipe for Homemade Peanut Butter Cups. Well, I copied it and printed it but now I have misplaced it. Does anybody out there have a recipe? I need it for next weekend for my husband's birthday party.

HERE ARE A COUPLE RECIPES:
1 1/2CUPS PEANUTBUTTER, SMOOTH
1/4 CUP BUTTER OR MARGARINE, SOFTENED
2 CUPS ICING SUGAR
1 TSP. VANILLA
2 CUPS SEMISWEET CHOCOLATE CHIPITS
1/3 CUP PARAFFIN(WAX) GRATED
MIX THE FIRST 4 INGR. AND SHAPE INTO SMALL BALLS.*
MELT CHIPITS AND PARAFFIN IN DOUBLE BOILER.
DIP BALLS INTO CHOCOLATE AND PLACE ON WAXPAPER.
*WHEN I MAKE THEM I USE SMALL CUPCAKE CUPS
I LINE THEM UP AND PUT A SMALL AMOUNT OF CHOCOLATE IN THE BOTTOM OF EACH CUP, JUST ENOUGH TO COVER THE BOTTOM. INSTEAD OF MAKING THE PEANUTBUTTER MIXTURE INTO BALLS I MAKE THEM INTO SMALL FLAT PATTIES. ONCE THE CHOCOLATE IS ON THE BOTTOM OF THE CUPCAKE CUP, PLACE A PEANUTBUTTER PATTY IN EACH ONE THEN POUR CHOCOLATE JUST ENOUGH TO COVER.
THE SECOND RECIPE IS FOR:
2 CUPS ICING SUGAR
2 CUPS FLAKED COCONUT
2 TBS MILK
1 TBS. BUTTER OR MARGARINE
1 CUP SEMISWEET CHOCOLATE CHIPITS
3 TBS. PARAFFIN
THESE ARE MADE THE SAME AS THE PEANUTBUTTER CUPS. THE RECIPE CALLS FOR THEM TO BE SHAPED LIKE SMALL LOGS, BUT CAN ALSO BE MADE IN THE CUPCAKES CUPS.
THESE RECIPES MAKE A LOT. THE DOUGH CAN BE FROZEN IF YOU HAVE TOO MUCH.
