In a bowl cream together the butter, powdered sugar and peanut butter then stir in the graham cracker crumbs and set aside. Go ahead. Taste test it. You know you want to.  Once that’s done, melt half of the chocolate chips with 2 TBS of the coconut oil until their smooth. Do NOT taste test the chocolate. It’s HOT!

If you’re wondering why we melted the chips with oil, it will help the chips harden a bit so they set up to form the cup.

Line a muffin pan with cupcake liners and fill each one of them with about a tablespoon of the chocolate/oil mixture. You might have a bit left over, but that’s okay. We’ll use it later. Refridgerate the chocolate for about 20 minutes so it can harden.

Grab your peanut butter mixture and drop a rounded teaspoon into each cup. Flatten it out a bit, but don’t go overboard. You’ll need to leave enough space on the sides for the chocolate to fully cover it. Now, melt the rest of the chocolate chips with the rest of the oil. You can use the same bowl as before.

Repeat step #2. Drop a tablespoon or so of chocolate into each cup. Make sure that it covers the edges. If you need to use extra, you should have enough chocolate in your bowl to fill any cups that need it. Tap the muffin pan on the counter to smooth the chocolate and refrigerate until they set

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator, but remove 5-10 minutes before serving so they aren’t so hard.
