1 package chocolate chips
2 tablespoons shortening
12 pieces paper cups -- (1 to 1 1/2) 1 inch
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup sifted powdered sugar
1 tablespoon melted butter

Preparation / Directions:

Chocolate cups: Combine over hot (not boiling) water, chocolate chips and shortening. Stir until mixture is melted and smooth. Remove from heat but leave over hot water. Coat the inside of each cup using approximately 1 teaspoon of chocolate. Place cups in palm of hand, rotating gently while pushing chocolate up sides with a spoon or small rubber spatula. Chill 15 to 20 minutes or until firm. Peanut Butter Filling: In small bowl, combine filling ingredients and mix until well blended. Shape into small balls and place in chill cups. Press ball down slightly to fill in spaces. Spoon enough of the remaining chocolate over the top to seal edges. Chill about 45 minutes. Store in refrigerator for best results.
