Heidi’s Peanut Butter Cups

Chocolate!  It’s time. It’s time I posted something über delicious and almost naughty.  And these little darlings are just that.  So delicious and so decadent and rich they almost feel like your breaking a rule or telling a fiblet (Fiblet… my word for when my two darling daughters don’t QUITE tell me the honest to gosh truth).

In trying desperately to describe to you how wonderful and rich and “decadent” these confections taste, I decided I needed to pull out my handy Thesaurus.  I’m giggling as I read the synonyms for decadent.  Wicked, self-indulgent, and immoral.  Not quite the words I was looking for… but I did say they tasted almost naughty.

I think I could say these candies are a little self-indulgent but not the least bit immoral!  A treat to be savored to the last bite.  Crunchy, crumbly and densely chocolate confections that put smiles on my family’s faces and made little giggles escape from my girls mouths.

Thanks to my dear friend Heidi Rodgers for this latest and greatest chocolate treat.  Yes, she and my other culinary gal pal, Linda, are my go to treat recipe professionals.  Thanks ladies for keeping the Bennett Crew well stocked in yummy, and almost naughty :), treats.

Better Than Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

Recipe created by Heidi Rodgers


1/2 cup butter

3/4 cup crunchy peanut butter

3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs (about 10 squares)

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 cup milk chocolate chips

1/4 cup whole milk

1/4 cup chopped peanuts


Line a 12 cup muffin tin with paper liners.

Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat.  Stir in peanut butter, graham cracker crumbs, and sugar.  Mix well.  Remove from heat.  Divide mixture evenly among muffin cups, about 2 Tbsp. per cup.

Combine chocolate and milk in another saucepan.  Stir over medium until chocolate has melted.  Spoon as evenly as possible over peanut butter mixture.  Top with chopped nuts.  Refrigerate until set, about 2 hours.


I'd love to hear from you!
