Just like Reece's peanut butter cups only I think these are better. With the addition of banana it takes peanut butter cups to a whole new level.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes set in the fridge time
Makes: 6 -8

Pb banana cups

1 and 1/2 cups of dark cooking chocolate
1 banana
Reece's or any American brand smooth peanut butter
Sprinkles (optional)

Slice banana making them thin, too thick and you will need a lot of chocolate to cover and it will be hard to bite into.
Get your mini muffin tin ready placing mini cupcake papers in each one
Melt chocolate over a double boiler
When melted add a little chocolate into the base of each one and brush some up the sides 1/2 way. Using the back of the spoon usually works.
When all have been filled place in the fridge to set for 5 minutes.
Now that they are set place about 1 teaspoon of peanut butter into each and a piece of banana on top.
Cover with more chocolate, making sure the whole thing is covered.
Melt more chocolate as required if you need more to finish covering the cups.
When I make these I like to do some with just peanut butter. For those times I like to put sprinkles on one kind so I can tell which is which.
Place back in the fridge for at least 10 minutes or until set completely.
These will keep in the fridge. They are a favourite in my house so they never last more than 2 days so I am not sure how long the banana will keep without turning brown.
