Christmas Treats, Part Two: Peanut Butter Cups

Hello friend..... These are so good. If you are like me, you hate the crumble fake texture of the big named peanut butter cups. Ew. These are wonderful. The peanut butter is creamy and delicious. This treat is so easy, but people always think it took a great feat to make them... ahhhh kitchen deception. My favorite. This recipe is courtesy of the Pioneer Woman's Tasty Kitchen member Jessinthekitchen. This is a site really worth checking out is you are looking for an abundance of recipes from a variety of different types of foodies. Enjoy!
Ingredients
6 ounces, weight Chocolate, Milk Or Semisweet
¾ cups Creamy Peanut Butter
4 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter, At Room Temperature
½ cups Honey

Instructions
Line a mini muffin tin with muffin papers and lightly spray with oil.
Melt the chocolate, milk or semisweet, over a double boiler. This is done by filling a medium sized pot with 2 inches of water. Allow it to boil over a medium flame. Place a glass bowl on top of the pot with the chocolate in it and slowly melt until it’s glossy and smooth.
Add 1/2 teaspoon of melted chocolate to each muffin liner, swirling it up the sides. It doesn’t have to be perfectly even because you’re going to put more chocolate on top. Place the tin into the refrigerator for about 10 minutes to harden slightly.
While those are chilling, mix together the peanut butter, butter, and honey until thoroughly combined. Once the chocolate has set up, add 1 teaspoon of the peanut butter mixture into each chocolate cup. Then cover with another 1/2 teaspoon of chocolate. Chill for about 20 minutes to completely set the chocolate.
