Crispy Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

I would not consider myself a baker and many of you have requested that I post more dessert recipes. Unfortunately, I did not make these but my cousin did and they were a huge hit this past weekend. She said they are really easy to make and it looks like it from the recipe!
Adapted from Crunchy Buckeyes
1+1/4 Cups smooth peanut butter
1/4 Cup butter (room temperature)
1 Cup powdered sugar
1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
1+1/2 Cups of Rice Crispies
1+3/4 Cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease mini muffin pan with non-stick spray and add a scant Tablespoon of chocolate chips into each cup. Melt in the oven for 5 minutes. With the back of a spoon, smooth out the top of the chocolate chips while they’re still warm. Set aside. (You could also melt the chocolate chips in the microwave or on the stovetop and spoon into cups.)

2. In a large bowl, cream together the peanut butter and butter until smooth. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla, then mix until combined. Pour in Rice Crispies and mix again until combined.

3. Drop heaping Tablespoons of the peanut butter mixture into each mini muffin cup. Smooth with the back of a spoon and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes before eating. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
