Hawaii Mom Blog: Homemade Peanut Butter Cups

Homemade Peanut Butter Cups

I love Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.  They are my all-time favorite candy.  Those who know me best would give me Reese's for holidays and other special occasions, or even "just because" - that's how much I love Reese's!

The chocolate and peanut butter combo is simply one of the best combos there is, and I decided to try and make my own peanut butter cups.

It's super easy, and I absolutely loved the PB cups. I didn't have the time or patience to try and make the PB layer "pretty," but they still turned out delicious.

In my opinion, they taste more like the PB cups from Trader Joe's vs Reese's, but they are still really, really good.

Of course, the true test would be with my kids, especially my middle son, who loves Reese's almost as much as I do.

He gave it a thumbs up!

The best part - this recipe is no bake!
