These Homemade Peanut Butter Cups are so simple to make and taste as good, if not better, than the real thing! They’re irresistible!
On the 2nd Day of Sugar my true love gave to me Homemade Peanut Butter Cups and they are so, so good! I’ve kept it no secret how much I love chocolate and peanut butter (alone or together) so I think these Homemade Peanut Butter Cups are kind of the bomb!
Back in the day when I was probably 12 or 13, my sister and her friend Emily and I decided we wanted to make a little money. We came up with the idea of making and selling homemade peanut butter cups. I honestly don’t even remember how we made them. I don’t think they even had a peanut butter center. We probably just melted peanut butter and chocolate together and poured it into cups.
However we did it, I do remember we made a lot of money. . . .at least by a 12-year old’s standards anyway. We thought we were quite the entrepreneurs. So now, every time I eat a Reese’s peanut butter cup or these homemade peanut butter cups, I always think about us doing that as kids. . . .those were the good old days.
Well I think this recipe is probably slightly better than what we made back in the day. These are so good and so simple to make. Put a few in a box and tie a ribbon around it and you’ve got a great neighbor gift.
