  • 2 tb Vegetable shortening

  • 3/4 c Creamy peanut butter
  • 3/4 c Confectioners' sugar, sifted

Combine over hot, not boiling, water, the milk chocolate chips and

smooth. Remove from the heat but keep over the hot water. Coat the inside
of the candy cups by using 1 t. of the chocolate mixture for each cup.
Place the candy cups in the palm of your hand and rotate gently, using a
narrow rubber spatula to push the chocolate up the sides of the cup. Chill.

butter, mixing until well blended. Using slightly rounded teaspoonfulls,
shape the peanut butter filling into balls. Place 1 ball in each chilled
cup and press lightly with your fingers to flatten. Spoon 1 level t. of the
reserved chocolate mixture on top and smooth over to seal. Chill until
form, about 45 minutes. Store in airtight container in the refrigerator.
