Homemade Peanut Butter Cups

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.

Couldn't find the one on Thriftyfun, but this may be what you are looking for.

REESES PEANUT BUTTER TEMPTATIONS

1 bag Reeses Peanut butter cups --unwrapped

Cream 1/2 cup each of marjarine, white sugar, peanut butter & Brown sugar til smooth.

Add 1 egg, 1/2 tsp vanilla, 3/4 tsp soda, 1/2 tsp salt & 1 1/2 cups flour. Blend til smooth.

Press small amt (maybe 1 tsp)of dough into small muffin tin cup that has been lined with paper liner.

Bake 350 degree for 10 mins.

Have Reeses unwrapped, and when cookies come out of oven press 1 peanut butter cup in center of each cookie. When chocolate is melted press a piece of pecan on top. cool 10 mins--remove from pan.

*(If cookies seem to big or too small, adjust how much dough you put in cup. Haven't made for a while and I forget how much per muffin cup)

HERE ARE A COUPLE RECIPES:

PEANUTBUTTER CUPS

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.

ENJOY.

===================

THE SECOND RECIPE IS FOR:

COCONUT LOGS

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.
