These taste similar to the commercial peanut butter cups, but better! Great for gifts.

Prep Time: 1 hour

Total Time: 1 hour


  • 4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate bar
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup butter (4 Tbsp or 1/2 stick)
  • 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate bar
  • 1/8 cup butter (2 Tbsp or 1/4 stick)
  • 1 ounce paraffin wax, chopped


Place 1-inch mini-muffin or candy papers in a mini-muffin tin.

In a double boiler, melt 4 ounces chocolate bar, peanut butter, and 1/4 cup butter, mixing until smooth. Gently mix in graham cracker crumbs.

Place about 1 teaspoon chocolate graham cracker mixture in bottom of paper cups. Chill 15 to 30 minutes to harden.

Place 3/4 cup peanut butter in a bowl over hot water to soften. Mix in powdered sugar and graham cracker crumbs. Place 1 teaspoon peanut butter mixture on top of hardened chocolate cracker layer. Chill 15 to 30 minutes.

Melt 6 ounces chocolate bar with butter and paraffin wax. Top the peanut butter layer with about 1 teaspoon chocolate mixture. Chill to harden. Refrigerate leftovers.
