crunchy peanut butter cups

This recipe exists. It really makes me feel like a dope when this has been pinned for months and I've just now tried it. As with all food, I am standing behind a "YOU NEED TO MAKE THESE RIGHT NOW" statement.  Take it or leave it.
I shower everyone in food this time of year. Cookies, cupcakes, pies, fudge. And now these. I didn't want to have to say it.. really... I can't avoid it. I expected this recipe to require some mad time and skills but.. it was so easy.  And everything was in my kitchen (that's like free). Click through here for the full recipe. Just to convince you even more, here are the(SEVEN) ingredients.

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

And a quick photo walk through...
And refrigerate for thirty or so minutes. I made baby peanut butter cups.. it made about forty. Also note that these should probably be stored in the refrigerator. They stay hard that way.


I would love to hear from you. And you, and you, and you...
