I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Peanut Butter Cups

This is my daughter Autumn and my son Brandon's favorite candy. These are super easy to make, even the little ones can help with these.


*2 cups milk chocolate chips (or merckens chocolate)
*1 cup peanut butter
*1/4 teaspoon salt
*1/2 cup powdered sugar

~Melt chocolate over low heat (or double boiler).
~Stir often until chocolate is melted and smooth.
~Spoon a small amount of chocolate into the bottom of each peanut butter cup mold.
~Tilt the tray to coat the sides and create a hollow chocolate shell, making sure there are no holes in the bottom or sides of the shell.
~Slide the molds into the freezer until the chocolate shells have set, about 15 minutes.
~In a small bowl, mix together peanut butter, powered sugar, and salt.
~Divide into the chocolate coated molds (about 1 teaspoon each)
~Pour chocolate over peanut butter filling to top of mold, making sure the edges are sealed and that there are no gaps in the chocolate.
~Place the peanut butter cups back in the freezer for about 10 minutes, or until they are set.
~Flip the molds over on a flat surface, tapping them lightly, until all the candies have been released from the molds.
~Store in a cool, air-tight container.
