But, I don't want you all to think I've disappeared, so today I'm bringing you something sweet to start the weekend off!! Who doesn't love Reese's Peanut Butter Cups? No one that I know of. So, when I saw these peanut butter and jelly filled chocolate cups, I knew that I had to make them. And as good as they looked, they tasted even better. I went with a traditional grape jelly, but next time I'm going to try them with raspberry jelly. YUM!!
They are just a little dangerous, because they are super easy to make, and since they are miniature, it's easy to eat more than one at a time...you know my weakness with miniature desserts.

- 1 tablespoon powdered/confectioner‘s sugar
- 1/2 cup of jelly – your choice of flavor!

- Coat the bottom and halfway up the sides of each liner with chocolate.
- Place the cupcake tin in the freezer for 20 minutes so the chocolate can harden.

- Remove the tins from the freezer and the peanut butter from the fridge, and spoon about 1 teaspoon of peanut butter into the center of each chocolate cup. Put the tin back in the freezer for about 10 minutes. Remove and add 1/2 teaspoon of jelly on top of the peanut butter.
- Cover cups with chocolate to cover the pb&j. Sprinkle salt on the top of each cup.
