Printable recipe here - ashleemarie.com/stormtrooper-peanut-butter-cups/
1 1/2 pkg graham crackers
1 lbs powdered sugar
1 C melted Butter
1 1/2 C peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)
12 oz white chocolate wafers
Crush the graham crackers (you can do this with a rolling pin over a freezer ziploc bag or in a food processor for smoother texture)
Mix the graham crackers, powdered sugar, butter and peanut butter until combined
melt 12 oz white chocolate
half way fill each stromtrooper mold
shape about 1 1/2 tsp of peanut butter filling into a rectangle and drop it into the mold
pour more chocolate on top and shake to help the chocolate settle
refrigerate for 1 hour and the pop out of mold
paint details with black candy gel onto the helmet
this makes WAY more filling than you'll need - I pressed the rest into a 9x9 pan and covered with melted milk chocolate to create peanut butter cup bars

Ashlee:, Hi, I'm, Ashlee, Marie.
And today, we're making these white chocolate peanut butter cup.
Let's, get started.
To make the center of this peanut butter cup, we're going to use a pack and a half of graham crackers.
We want to grind them up until they're really fine., We have a pound of powdered sugar, and all of our crushed graham crackers, and then a cup of butter, and finally, a cup and a half of creamy peanut, butter.
You can use crunchy, peanut butter.
If you like.
In, fact, it's, my husband's preferred way., He, prefers the crunchy peanut butter, but not everybody does.
So, keep stirring that until it's all completely incorporated and there's.
No white powdered sugar, left.
Our peanut butter filling is done.
And now we're going to create our - Kids: Stormtrooper, heads., Ashlee:, Our, Stormtrooper, white chocolate, peanut butter, cups., So, I have some white chocolate melted., We're going to take a spoon and we're going to half way fill each of the molds.
Kids: Be, careful.
It can be pretty hot.
It can be.
So I have this mini scoop and I'm actually going to rip off about one-third of it, because I've tried this.
And if it's that full, it actually will show through the mask, and we don't want that.
You kind of want to shape it kind of in the shape of the Stormtrooper mask, a little bit wider on one side, a little bit narrow on one side, and pretty thin, because, again.
We don't want it to push through the mask.
Then just plop it right on top don't, push down, too hard.
You push down until you get resistance.
That means the peanut butter is actually touching one of the details of the mask and you're, not going to be happy with the way that turns out.
So again, kind of flatten, shape into a rectangle that's slightly wider on one side and just pull up into the mask.
Kids:, Can, I, try?, Ashlee:, Sure., Then, take some more of that melted chocolate.
Kids: Again, be careful.
It can be hot.
Ashlee:, And, top each one.
What do we do? Kids:, Jiggle, it., Ashlee:, Yup, shake it.
And that will help even out the chocolate and bring any bubbles to the surface.
You notice any place not completely covered, now's your chance to fix that.
You've shaken out all the bubbles you should stick this in the fridge for an hour.
All, right? These are out of the fridge, and they are ready to pop out.
I like to pull the sides away before I get started.
Kids:, Usually, I do it.
Ashlee: You, just kind of push around the face and then push the nose in.
And it pops right? Out., Looks, great., If, there's, any weird edges.
You can just pop those off.
You can leave these white, or you can take some black candy gel and a small paintbrush.
And you can paint in the eyes.
So fill in the hole, I, don't, know, sunglasses, area?, Is that what that's called? Kids: It's, where the eyes are.
Ashlee:, All, right.
And once you filled that in --.
These molds are actually for an old style of Stormtrooper, not the latest incarnation of the Stormtrooper mask.
So we're, just going to kind of have to try to make it into looking like this incarnation, so across the bridge of the nose and then up the side.
And then finally up here to meet with the glasses.
We're, finished., They, look, great., Do.
You like them?, Kids:, Yes., Ashlee:, All, right, I think, the addition of the hand painting black on the helmet just totally makes them, wouldn't be the same without them.
So I'm, really glad I took the time to do that, even though it was super time.
We made these peanut butter cup Stormtroopers along with what, half a dozen other treats and snacks for the princess's birthday, party.

You want to see me, make.
All, right now it's time for our favorite part.
We get to taste them., So, I, cut one open.
You can see how full that is on the inside.
It doesn't seem like it when you're just pouring all that chocolate on shaking.
It up, doesn't seem like there's going to be a much.
Cheers., Kids:, It tastes like a peanut butter, cup.
58, 00:04:47,399, -->, 00:00:00,000, Ashlee:, It tastes just like a peanut butter, cup, huh?, Thanks for watching..
