1. Set 18 mini paper baking cups on a baking sheet. Melt 4 ounces of the chocolate either over a double boiler on the stove tip or in short bursts in the microwave. Spoon 1 teaspoon of melted chocolate into each cup. Use an offset spatula or a small spoon to spread the chocolate slightly up the sides of each baking cup; make sure you have an even chocolate base at the bottom of each cup. Let cool at room temperature for about 15-20 minutes until mostly solid.
2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, stir together peanut butter, sugar, vanilla and salt. Transfer the mixture to a resealable plastic bag and seal it tightly.
3. Cut the corner of the plastic bag and pipe 2-3 teaspoons of peanut butter into the center of each cup. With a very lightly moistened finger, tamp down the peanut butter and make it flat and even, but leave a bit of space between the peanut butter and the edge of the paper cup.
4. Melt the remaining 5 ounces of chocolate. Spoon 1 teaspoon of chocolate onto the top of each cup. use an offset spatula or a small spoon to spread the chocolate evenly over the top and down the sides of the cup. Refirgerate until solid, about 30 minutes.
