I ♥ Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. I ♥ this recipe!

Fillo Peanut Butter Cups

INGREDIENTS

    1 box (1.9 oz) mini– fillo shells (15 in box)
    15 miniature peanut butter cups (from a 12-oz bag)
    1 can (7 oz) whipped light cream

PREPARATION

1. Heat oven to 350ºF. Line a rimmed baking sheetwith foil. Place fillo shells on baking sheet.

2. Place a peanut butter cup in each shell. Bake 5 minutes until chocolate softens. With small metal spatula or knife, flatten and even out chocolate in
fillo cup. Let stand at room temperature until cooled.

3. Top each filled cup with whipped cream. Sprinkle with chopped salted peanuts, if desired.

Each of these is 97 calories. A manageable number☺

These are GOOD, easy to make, and a great addition to my repertoire of recipes when I'm baking and cooking with my grandchildren. Little guys feel so good when they can make something to take home to mommy and daddy.

There aren't many times that I find a recipe and immediately buy the ingredients. I did with this one and I sure don't regret the trip to the store! If you ♥ Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, you are in for a treat!

One quick question, are the filo cups in the cupcake holders when they bake or do you add the completed product to the cupcake holder? Thanks Mary
