Simple and delish! I made these for the first time over the summer and even my picky cousins loved them. This Christmas I'm making them again but also trying some with strawberry topping instead of peanut butter cups. Yumm! Great recipe.

I have been making these for years and they are always a favorite whether I make them for my family or some other event. Do not have to use mini-peanut butter cups, I make them plain, with a chocolate ganache center, choc-chips or whatever... It is very easy and I have my young daughter help. She especially likes to mash the graham crackers up! We use one sleave of crackers and put them in a large zip-top bag and crush them with a rolling pin. I have found boxed crumbs to be very stale tasting.
