Homemade Peanut Butter Cups: A special treat that is worth every single solitary second spent making them.
Do you know what’s worth every single solitary second spent making?
I’ll give you a hint. It involves chocolate and peanut butter and a whole lot of mmmm’s and ahhhhh’s.
Still don’t know?
It’s homemade peanut butter cups, duh.
This is probably one of the easiest, most customizable treats you could ever make. And it’s so much better than the store-bought variety. Which is saying a lot since those are so. freakin’. good.
Any nut butter will work here.
As will any kind of chocolate.
It’s baker’s choice up in here.
A small caveat here: these are probably more for the older kids in the house. Or for grown-ups to enjoy sans kids. While my daughter absolutely loved hers and devoured it in seconds flat, I didn’t love her behavior post-treat. She kind of loses her mind when chocolate comes into the picture.
So yeah. Go me.
Mind you, it was totally worth it in the end because omgchocolateandpeanutbutter.
