I finally bought a mini muffin pan from Sur La Table the other day and I knew I had to make these! These peanut butter cups are super easy to make and there is no baking required!


These babies are already eaten. You can’t stop at just one!


The peanut butter inside is a combination of powdered sugar, brown sugar and butter. It’s very creamy and rich. Perfect to sink your teeth into.
