Peanut Butter Cup Recipe - Really Good

Peanut Butter Cup Recipe

This Easy and Delicious Chocolate Treat Beats any Store Bought Candy
In the mid 1920s Harry Burnett Reese, a former dairy employee of Milton S. Hershey of Hershey Foods Corporation, left the dairy industry to become a fulltime candy maker. He began selling his peanut butter cups in wholesale markets. Due to the hardships at the time around World War 2, Harry focused solely on making peanut butter cups, putting all of his efforts into one product. Few would argue he made a mistake!

Peanut Butter Cup Recipe
Makes 32 - 40 peanut butter cups
Ingredients
   2 cups of creamy peanut butter
   1 sticks of butter or margarine
   2 T shortening (I use Crisco)
   2 cups of confectioners sugar (powdered sugar)
   2 cups of graham cracker crumbs (well crushed)
   2 teaspoons of vanilla
   12 ounces of chocolate chips (semi-sweet or milk chocolate)
Directions
1.   Melt the peanut butter and the butter together.
2.   Remove peanut butter and butter mixture from heat. Add sugar, crumbs and vanilla.
3.   Press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2 pan.
4.   Melt the chocolate and shortening in a 1 qt saucepan over low heat. Stirring occasionally, until melted and smooth about 3-5 minutes.
5.   Pour melted chocolate over the peanut butter mixture.
6.   Freeze for 15 minutes.
7.   Cut into squares. Refrigerate when not enjoying them.

What I post I do make, but I have been a bit slack taking pictures. My wife always is saying why are you taking pictures of food....

I also travel a bit, and have over 600 TripAdvisor reviews posted, most with photos. I will work on getting some updated photos for my recipes.
