Crispy Peanut Butter Cups

I found this recipe on Lauren's Menu . They are very good! I did change the recipe a bit and used reduced fat peanut butter instead of regular peanut butter. With regular peanut butter each is about 2.5 points, I haven't plugged in the recipe at WW yet, but I'm guessing it is a bit less with reduced fat peanut butter. Here's the recipe:

1/2 cup milk chocolate chips

2 T unsalted butter, room temp

1/2 cup JIF reduced fat peanut butter

1/2 cup powder sugar

1 t vanilla

3/4 Rice Krispies


Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a mini muffin tin with non-stick spray. Sprinkle about 12-15 chocolate chips in each muffin cup and place in the oven for 3-5 minutes, careful not to burn them. Once they come out set aside.

In your mixer, cream the butter and peanut butter until smooth, about 2 minutes. Then add the powder sugar and the vanilla, mix until combined. Finally add the Rice Krispies and stir to combine.

Add about 1 T of the peanut butter mixture to the tops of the melted chocolate chips. Spray the back of a spoon with non-stick spray and press the peanut butter mixture down on top. Place in the fridge for about an hour. Store covered and in the fridge.
