Jamie's Peanut Butter Cups

Ingredients

1/2 package graham crackers, rolled fine
1 teaspoon shortening
3 teaspoons peanut butter for decoration
cup small (optional)

Preparation

1
Crush up the graham crackers. I use a mini food processor. These are so great and can be purchased for under $10 at Wal Mart.
2
Place the butter in a medium sized mixing bowl and melt the butter in the microwave.
3
Add the peanut butter, graham crackers, and powdered sugar to the butter. Using a wooden spoon, stir until all ingredients are incorporated.
4
In a glass measuring cup melt the chocolate 30 seconds at a time, stirring between each cooking interval. When the chocolate is almost melted, let it sit for about 1 minutes. The heat from the chocolate will melt the remaining chips.
5
Stir the shortening into the melted chocolate.
6
Put the cups in the mini muffin tins.
7
Place about a teaspoon of chocolate in the bottom of each cup.
8
Roll the peanut butter mixture into balls and place on top of the chocolate.
9
Add another teaspoon or so of chocolate on top of the peanut butter ball and smooth it out with a butter knife.
10
Melt 3 T of peanut butter in the microwave and then drizzle it over the top of the cups.
11
Slide them into the refrigerator to let them set.
12
When I am in a hurry....or quite frankly, just out of patience I press the peanut butter mixture into a pan and spread the chocolate on top. Throw it in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to set up and you are good to go! This makes for a quick DELICOUS treat.
