Peanut Butter Cups From Easter Candy and a Paper Cup




First off, this is my first Instructable. So please no rude comments. I'm entering this into the Coffee cup challenge, so please vote for me.

Step 1: You'll Need

Peanut butter
Chocolate (I used chocolate from my leftover easter candy)
Paper cup
2 bowls
and about 10 minutes

Step 2: Lets Start!

First, break up your chocolate and microwave it for about a minute and stir it in 10 second intervals.
Make your mold from a paper cup. You make the mold to your preference. Mine are normally a inch or two deep.

Fill the mold with chocolate about 1/3 full.

Now freeze or cool till' its solid.

Step 3: Melt Your Peanut Butter

The peanut butter will melt very quickly (10 seconds). Fill Another 3rd of your cup and let it cool.

Step 4: Add the Final Layer

For this part you just need to fill the rest of your cup with chocolate.

Step 5: Eat It!

To eat, just cut/peel the cup and pull out your tasty treat.

    If you mix the peanut butter with an equal amount of powdered (confectioners) sugar you'll have something about the same as Reeses peanut butter cups.

    You shouldn't melt chocolate in a microwave it can burn :P

    This looks really good! at first it looked like it was underwater because of your camera. The pictures are really good though!

    If you were to swirl the chocolate around the sides of the cup before chilling, you would get that thin little wall for the peanut butter.  But to each their own.

    You did an awesome job on this one, I like the idea of using the cup so you get a really big one.
