I just requested help for this recipe and now noticed that Kelly said she could not get her oil and p butter chips to melt. UGH, stressing out here! Did anyone else have this problem? Any tips? I wish I had the ingredients here to try this right now! Please, please help!

Jodi,
you dont melt the peanut butter cups.. it's the chips you melt. they melt easy with a little oil in the microwave. just have to be carful to to burn the peanut butter. the smell ( :yuck: )

The pb cups go on the top of the warm torte and they will melt just a little as the torte cools. To make cutting the pb cups easier I put them in the fridge for a bit then I cut them up. I use the walmart brand pb cups that come in a package and usually use all of them.

I've never had a problem with it! This was one of my most requested recipes the season I offered it!

I got to thinking about this a little more. Not sure how she melted them but if you melt regular chocolate chips in the microwave and don't stir it frequently they actually give you the appearance of not melting but it's actually because they are over heated and just stick together. That may have been the problem.

Store brand or old chips won't melt well. Splurge on the name brand (Reese's) chips for this recipe. Also, they won't LOOK melted, even if they've started to. Give them a stir after every 30 seconds or so in the microwave.
