Instructions

  • In a bowl Cream together the Butter, Powdered sugar and Peanut butter.
  • Stir in the Graham cracker crumbs and set aside.
  • In a microwave safe bowl melt 12 oz. of the Chocolate chips with 2 Tbsp. of the Coconut oil in 30 second increments stirring after each until the chips are melted and smooth.
  • Put 24 cupcake liners in muffin tins and spoon 1 Tbsp. of chocolate into the liners, you should have a little left over. Place the tins in the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes so the chocolate sets.
  • Place a rounded teaspoon of Peanut butter filling on to the chocolate and flatten it out being careful to leave space on the edges for the chocolate to fall over the edge.
  • Melt the remaining 12 oz. of Chocolate with the remaining 2 Tbsp. of Coconut oil in the same bowl with the left over melted chocolate.
  • Spoon a Tbsp. of chocolate over the tops pushing it to the edges to surround the Peanut butter filling.
  • Put a Tbsp. in each cup then fill in with any extra as needed. Tap the pans on the counter to help smooth out the chocolate.
  • Refrigerate to let the Chocolate set.
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator, remove 5-10 minutes before serving so they aren’t hard.
