Peanut Butter Chocolate Goodness!!!

Thanks to Pinterest I have discovered another new favorite dessert! 

Crunchy Peanut Butter Cups......can you say YUM!

They are super easy to make and require no baking.  All you need is:

1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup semisweet or milk chocolate chips
1/4 cup milk
Sea salt

Line a  muffin tin with papers (you could also use a mini muffin tin if you prefer).

In a microwave safe bowl, melt the butter & peanut butter together for 45 seconds.  Stir until smooth.  Add graham cracker crumbs and sugar and mix to combine.  Distribute mixture evenly between the prepared muffin cups.  Refrigerate for 15 minutes to set peanut butter layer.

After the peanut butter has chilled, combine chocolate and milk in a microwave safe bowl and heat in 25 second intervals until chocolate is just melted.  Stir until smooth.  Distribute chocolate evenly over the top of the peanut butter layer. 

Sprinkle with sea salt and chill until firm, at least 30 minutes.  Store covered in the fridge. 

My pictures don't do it justice!! I do recommend using mini muffin tins because these are so rich.
