Peanut Butter Heart Cups

I thought this was a quick cute idea to make for Valentine Day.

Prep time: 25 minutes
Cook time: 2 minutesThese tiny cups made out of chocolate and filled with peanut butter filling are the perfect treat at the end of a Valentine dinner.
Brought to you by: What you need
36 NESTLÉ BUTTERFINGER or Milk Chocolate Hearts, unwrapped, divided
15 small candy paper liners
1 cup of creamy peanut butter
1 cup of powdered sugar
1 tablespoon of butter, softened

How to do it
MICROWAVE 21 Nestlé Hearts in medium, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute; STIR. The Nestlé Hearts may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until melted. With a small pastry brush, coat inside of 15 small candy paper liners with melted chocolate.

REFRIGERATE for 20 minutes; coat any thin spots. Refrigerate for an additional 30 minutes or until firm.

BEAT peanut butter, sugar and butter in small mixer bowl until creamy.

PEEL paper gently from chocolate cups. Fill each cup with 1 tablespoon peanut butter filling. Before serving, top each cup with 1 Nestlé Heart. Store in refrigerator.

This reminds me of a PB recipe I got from my MIL. I love the idea of making them into cups. I just might do that with ny recipe. It's more of a bar form but I like this better!
