Chocolate Peanut Butter Marshmallow Cups

These no-bake candies are easy to make and great for gifts. Good project for kids with minimal adult supervision.

3 cups miniature marshmallows (about 5 ounces)
1 cup crunchy peanut butter
1/4 cup butter not margarine (1/2 stick)
12 oz special dark semisweet (2 giant 6-oz bars), broken into chunks
1 cup crispy rice cereal, crushed (1/2 cup after crushing)

Line mini-muffin tins with muffin papers. Place 4 miniature marshmallows in each cup. In a double boiler, melt butter and peanut butter together, stirring until smooth.

Add chocolate, stirring to avoid scorching, until combined. Remove from heat. Fold in crushed rice cereal. Spoon about 1 tablespoon of chocolate mixture over the marshmallows in each cup. When trays are full, tap gently on the counter to force chocolate down and around the marshmallows. Chill at least two hours. Refrigerate leftovers.
