  • In a small saucepan heat semisweet chocolate pieces and milk chocolate pieces over low heat, stirring constantly, until melted and smooth.

  • Remove saucepan from heat. In another small saucepan heat the peanut butter over low heat, stirring constantly, until melted. Remove saucepan from heat.

  • Pour about 1 tablespoon melted chocolate into each paper bake cup; chill about 5 minutes or until chocolate is firm. Pour about 1 tablespoon melted peanut butter over the firm chocolate in each paper bake cup; chill about 5 minutes more or until peanut butter is firm.

  • Pour the remaining melted chocolate evenly over the peanut butter layer in each paper bake cup, spreading the chocolate to cover the peanut butter. (If chocolate has stiffened a bit, return to low heat and stir until softened.) Sprinkle each with chopped peanuts.

  • Chill candy about 10 minutes more or until firm. Store tightly covered in the refrigerator. To serve, allow cups to stand at room temperature for 5 minutes.
