- In a microwave safe bowl warm the peanut butter for 15 to 20 second till soft and at a pourable consistency.

- Spoon ½ teaspoon of slightly melted peanut butter over chocolate. Tap the muffin tin lightly again to spread.
- Top it off with 2 teaspoon of melted chocolate. Tap lightly to spread everything evenly and to get rid of any air bubbles. Add sprinkles of choice.
- Refrigerate the tin for about 30 minutes for the cups to harden.

Homemade Peanut Butter Cup Tips
- Since the chocolate doesn’t have any stabilizers added, it melts quickly. Keep under refrigeration at all times.
- If honey roasted peanut butter is not available, use regular peanut butter. Add a tablespoon of honey or maple syrup and warm in the microwave for 30 seconds till soft. Mix well and use it as per the recipe.
- If using chocolate chips instead of bar, add a tablespoon of vegetable or coconut oil, while melting. It prevents seizing.
