Peanut Butter Cups

12 paper muffin cups
12-ounce pkg. milk chocolate chips
1 cup reduced-fat peanut butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt

Cut the top half off of the muffin cups so that they are shallower.
Pour the chocolate chips into a glass bowl and melt them in the
microwave: Microwave at 50% power for 2 minutes. Stir the chips
gently, and let them sit for a minute or so. If the chocolate needs
more melting, microwave those chippies again at half power for 30
seconds. Stir gently. Continue the process, stirring gently as you

Using a teaspoon, spoon a portion of the chocolate into the middle
of a muffin cup. Draw the chocolate up the edges of the cup with
the back of the spoon. Coat the entire inside of the muffin cup
with chocolate and place it into a muffin tin. Repeat with the
remaining muffin cups and then put the whole muffin tin in the
refrigerator so that the chocolate hardens.

Combine the reduced-fat peanut butter, powdered sugar and salt in
a medium bowl. When the chocolate in the muffin cups has hardened,
pop the sweetened peanut butter into the microwave oven on full
power for 1 minute.

Spoon a small portion of peanut butter into each of the chocolate-coated
cups. Put the candy back in the refrigerator to harden the peanut
butter. When the peanut butter filling has hardened, re-melt the
chocolate chips in the microwave on half power for 30 to 60 seconds.
Use a teaspoon to spread a layer of chocolate over the top of each
candy. Chill the candy once again to set up the chocolate.

Makes 12 candies.
