Homemade Peanut Butter Cups with Sea Salt

After eating these, you won't want store bought Peanut Butter Cups anymore.  These are awesome and so rich, especially with the sea salt sprinkled on top.  I finally broke down and bought some sea salt and hope to use it for many other recipes.  This recipe makes eight peanut butter cups and they are pretty big.  If you're not into sweets as much, eat half because they're rich! These are also no bake and super easy to mix up- they just take a little time to set up in the refrigerator and you just use your microwave to heat the ingredients.  Easy-peasy! 

Peanut Butter Cups with Sea Salt

Makes eight Peanut Butter Cups

Recipe from Blue Eyed Bakers

1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup semisweet or milk chocolate chips
1/4 cup milk
Sea salt
Line a muffin tin with papers (you could also use a mini muffin tin if you prefer).
In a microwave safe bowl, melt the butter & peanut butter together for 45 seconds. Stir until smooth. Add graham cracker crumbs and sugar and mix to combine. Distribute mixture evenly between the prepared muffin cups. Refrigerate for 15 minutes to set peanut butter layer.
After the peanut butter has chilled, combine chocolate and milk in a microwave safe bowl and heat in 25 second intervals until chocolate is just melted. Stir until smooth. Distribute chocolate evenly over the top of the peanut butter layer. Sprinkle with sea salt and chill until firm, at least 30 minutes. Store covered in the fridge.

Look at that glossy peanut butter and butter melted together-oh yeah!
