Mmm they'll make a housewife outta me yet..

Today is my last night of church before I head back home. I decided that I would do something creative for the kind individuals I had come to love and cherish as friends. But what to do in the comfort of my dorm?? Well, simple. I made Homemade Peanut Butter and Jelly Reece's cups :)

This is the second step, the peanut butter on the first layer of chocolate. It's really a simple recipe. Just 2 cups of semi sweet chocolate chips, 1 cup of peanut butter, 1 tablespoon of powdered sugar, any flavored jelly of your choice, and 1 teaspoon of coconut oil.
Melt the chocolate and add the coconut oil. Place a layer in the bottom of your mini, muffin tin. Place in freezer for 15 minutes. While that is freezing, mix your peanut butter and powdered sugar, then place in the fridge for 10 minutes. When both timers go off, remove and place a small ball of peanut butter in each, then place back in the freezer for ten minutes. When that is done, place 1/2 a teaspoon of jelly on each, then cover with the remaining chocolate. Place back in the freezer (last time I promise) for 20 minutes. Remove and enjoy :)
They can sit at room temp for at least three days. So far, they have been phenomenal. I plan to make more for my finals, study snacks :)
