    You need to fill in one of those blanks to make it figure properly. At least that's what it appears in my experience. The Is equal to the weight of __________________ bit is what I use from the label.
    Your PB should say serving size 2 tablespoons (32g) It might not be 32 grams on your brand but something similar. Put the 32 grams in the Is equal to the weight of __________________ box.

    I input it the way it should be but total recipe is coming out to be 3 pts and the recipe on the thread said 2pts for the peanut butter cups, I guess I have done something wrong I will keep playing with it.

    Peanut Butter Cups
    Makes 12 (2 pts each)

    Ingredients:
    1 tub (8 oz) FF Cool Whip
    1/4 Cup RF Peanut Butter (I like JIF)
    Hershey's Chocolate Syrup

    Medium Muffin Pan (12 muffins)
    Aluminum Muffin cups

    Preparation:
    Put 1/2 of the tub of FF Cool Whip in a bowl. Mix in 1/4 Cup RF Peanut Butter. Fold in the rest of the FF Cool Whip. Pour mixture into aluminum muffin cups. (Use the aluminum cups so that the peanut butter cups can be removed easily) Top each of the cups with 1 tsp chocolate syrup. Cover muffin pan with aluminum foil or plastic wrap. Freeze. Enjoy!

    This one...

    It's entirely possible the recipe had the wrong Points. It happens pretty often, even with recipes people get off of the "official" WW site. For example, the recipe might not have added in the 12 tsp. of Hershey's syrup, but in your recipe you did.

    It's always a good idea to re-check for yourself.

    Can someone run this threw their mastercook to see what you come up with. If these points are wrong that will suck, because I made these a few weeks ago and everytime I had one I counted it as 2 points.
