Peanut Butter Cups

While walking through walmart with my housemates A and S the other day (we're classy broads), I developed a strong craving for peanut butter cups. I didn't have my wallet at the time, though, and I don't really have the money for it anyway.
I compromised and made some later.

Step one: make sure you have baking cups.
Step two: google peanut butter cup recipes and get a general idea of how to make them.
Step three: microwave a handful (larger than the one shown) of chocolate chips for about 15 s and stir until they melt together.

You WILL need more chocolate than this.

Step four: glob some of the chocolate onto the bottom of the baking cup. Smooth it around until it covers the bottom and comes up the sides a little.

Step five: mix a spoonful of peanut butter with a spoonful of brown sugar and a sprinkle of salt.

Step six: microwave the peanut butter for about 10 s; stir and microwave at 5-10 s intervals until the mixture is smooth but not melty.
Step seven: glob a spoonful of peanut butter onto the chocolate in the baking cup. Make sure to get it as much in the middle as possible. Smooth gently.

Step eight: carefully glob the rest of the chocolate onto the peanut butter. If there's not enough, repeat step three with more before you glob. Smooth carefully over the peanut butter, all the way to the edges.

Step nine: place in refrigerator because it's a million degrees outside and you're impatient.
Step ten: set back out on counter to soften slightly before eating because you hate really hard chocolate candies.

Step eleven: devour.

Om nom nom.
