Peanut butter chocolate cups

Imagine that you eat peanut butter cookie dipped in the dark chocolate ^^, it is what you get from this little cup.

Peanut and chocolate are great combination, the richness of peanut, the sweetness of the cookie and the bitterness from the chocolate make this treat so special.
I love using brown sugar in the cookie dough, the sweetness is mellow and it gives the dough extra moisture.
When dividing the dough it depends on the size of your mini muffin tins, don't put the dough too much or the cookie dough will overflow, and you won't get cute cookie cups.
I think decorating makes this cups more adorable but it won't effect the taste so you can do it or skip, it's up to you.
