Remove wrappers from snack size peanut butter cups. For each sandwich cookie, place two peanut butter cups on flat side of cookie; place on paper towel. Microwave at MEDIUM (50%) 10 to 15 seconds; gently press second cookie on peanut butter cup. Wait several minutes for peanut butter cup to soften and adhere to second cookie. Eat immediately or allow chocolate to set before storing cookies. Makes about 18 sandwich cookies.
