Mini Peanut Butter Cups

Those four words – Mini Peanut Butter Cups – pretty much sell this product without much more description from us, so we'll be brief. Made by the same supplier who makes our original Peanut Butter Cups, the Minis are made using all natural peanut butter and luscious milk chocolate. These are shaped just like miniature versions of the original, and because of their small size, they're not encumbered by individual paper cups. How small are they? A bit smaller than bite-size, and, not coincidentally, they maintain the perfect ratio of peanut butter to chocolate. Or chocolate to peanut butter, depending on your point of view.
Trader Joe's Mini Peanut Butter Cups are excellent for snacking – not that you really needed us to tell you that. They also make a superb topping for ice cream – again, not terribly surprising. It may not have occurred to you, though, that these Minis make a deliciously unique replacement for chocolate chips in cookies or brownies. Each 12 ounce tub is $3.49, making Mini PB Cups a delicious value, too.
