Five ingredients are all it takes to make these delicious mini peanut butter cups. Our secret? The addition of Honey Nut Cheerios for an extra sweet taste.

Ingredients

1/2
cup salted butter, melted
1
cup Honey Nut Cheerios™ cereal, finely ground
1
cup powdered sugar
3/4
cup creamy peanut butter
1
cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Steps

  • 1 In a medium-sized container, mix the melted butter, ground Cheerios™, powdered sugar and peanut butter until all ingredients are fully incorporated, forming a kind of creamy batter.
  • 2 Add 1 tablespoon of the Cheerios™ batter to each individual mold in a mini muffin pan, filling or preparing 21 mini cupcakes.
  • 3 Melt the chocolate in the microwave.
  • 4 Pour 1 tablespoon of the melted chocolate over the layer of Cheerios™ batter. Refrigerate for 3 hours, or until the cupcakes have set and are completely firm. Store in the refrigerator.
