  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate pieces
  • ½ cup milk chocolate pieces
  • 1 ½ ounce confectioners sugar
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoon chopped peanuts
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla


  • Using a 2 ½ inch muffin pan, line eight muffin cups with paper bake cups; set pan aside. We used much smaller paper bake cups to double the final piece count and make them bite size.
  • In a small saucepan, heat the semisweet and milk chocolate pieces over low heat until melted.
  • Remove saucepan from heat.
  • In a second small saucepan, heat the peanut butter, butter, and vanilla over low heat, stirring constantly until melted.
  • Once melted, add the confectioners sugar and stir. Remove from heat.
  • If you are using the larger paper bake cups pour about 1 tablespoon melted chocolate into each paper bake cup; chill about 5 minutes until chocolate is firm.
  • Pour about 1 tablespoon melted peanut butter over the firm chocolate in each paper bake cup; chill about 5 minutes more until peanut butter is firm.
  • Pour the remaining melted chocolate evenly over the peanut butter layer in each paper bake cup.
  • Sprinkle each with chopped peanuts.
  • Chill candy about 10 minutes or until firm.
  • Store tightly covered in the refrigerator. To serve allow cups to stand at room temperature for 5-10 minutes.
