Choco-Peanut Butter Cups

Here is a recipe for christmas, I am going to attempt to put christmas cookie recipe on my blog everyday until christmas

roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated peanut butter cookies
cup Hershey's® premier white baking chips (6 oz)
1 1/2
cups JIF® Creamy Peanut Butter
cup Hershey's® semi-sweet baking chips (6 oz)
Nature Valley® oats 'n honey crunchy granola bars (2 pouches from 8.9-oz box), crushed (3/4 cup)*

Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 24 mini muffin cups with CRISCO® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray, or grease with shortening. Cut cookie dough into 24 slices. Press 1 slice in bottom and up side of each mini muffin cup, forming 1/4-inch rim above top of cup (sprinkle fingers with flour if necessary). Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until edges are deep golden brown. Cool in pans on cooling racks 5 minutes. With tip of handle of wooden spoon, press dough down in center of each cup to make room for 2 tablespoons filling.
Meanwhile, in 2-quart saucepan, melt white chips and 3/4 cup of the peanut butter over low heat, stirring constantly. Divide mixture evenly into cookie cups (about 1 tablespoon each). Refrigerate 10 minutes.
In same 2-quart saucepan, melt semi-sweet baking chips and remaining 3/4 cup peanut butter over low heat, stirring constantly. Divide chocolate mixture evenly on top of peanut butter mixture in each cup (about 1 tablespoon each). Sprinkle crushed granola bars over top of each. Refrigerate until set, about 1 hour. Remove from muffin cups before serving.

I hope everyone had a great thanksgiving

We had a bunch of quest this year and it was fun and all, but man! am I  tired. I cook most of friday evening and into the wee hour got back up at 5 am. It was worth it. I made corn pudding and my neices husband loved it and asked who made it. My mother and sister-n-law both brought some stuff too. I slightly overcooked the pecan pie but it was still good, it never fails I always burn at least one thing. Ok I will admit it, I fell asleep and woke up iin time to barely save my pie.
