Homemade Peanut Butter Cups

2 cups milk chocolate chips
2 tablespoons shortening
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
1 cup confectioners' sugar
2/3 cup graham cracker crumbs
30 mini (1 3/4 by 1 1/4 inch) paper cups

In 1-quart saucepan combine chocolate chips and shortening. Cook 
over low heat, stirring occasionally, until melted and smooth (3 to 
5 minutes). 
Loosen top paper cup from stack, but leave in stack for greater 
stability while being coated. With small paint brush, coat inside top 
cup evenly with about 1 teaspoon melted chocolate to about 1/8-inch 
thickness, bringing coating almost to top of cupbut not over edge. 
Repeat until 30 cups are coated; refrigerate cups. 
In 2-quart saucepan combine butter or margarine and peanut butter. 
Cook over medium heat, stirring ocassionally, until melted (4 to 6 
minutes). Stir in confectioners' sugar and graham cracker crumbs. 
Press about 1/2 tablespoon filling into each chocolate cup. 
Spoon about 1/2 teaspoon melted chocolate on top of filling; spread 
to cover. Freeze until firm (about 2 hours) carefully peel off paper 
cups. Store refrigerated.
