These are a few of my favorite things....

Summer Sunsets
Tall glass of sweet iced tea
Cool breezy mornings
The smell of rain
The smell of Fall in the air

And these.....

Isn't it beautiful. Seriously, I love peanut butter cups so when I ran across them the other night while catching up on blog reading I had to make them. . .THAT INSTANT. Luckily, we had everything on hand that was crucial to the recipe. The only thing that I changed was the type of chocolate ( I had 60% dark chocolate chips) and size of the peanut butter cups. I didn't have mini liners, so I had to use regular cupcake size liners. Oh well :-)

The recipe is super simple and quick. You'll have delicious goodness in no time flat. What I love is how they aren't super sweet. The dark chocolate chips balance out the slight sweetness of the peanut butter mixture. What you get is a match made in heaven.

I didn't eat them that night, because I knew wouldn't be sleeping after eating one. But the next day I had half of one for breakfast. It was delicious. Don't worry it's not the only thing I ate, but it could have been.

Homemade peanut butter cups, just one of my favorite things.

haha...we must be family now. I just had a blog entry with the exact same title. Your list of favorite things totally rings true with me too. I will have to try these PB cups soon (I've already added that blog to my food blog list, haha).

You just became my new favorite person. Chocolate and PB is my most favorite combo ever. I have to try now!
