Reeses Cups Copy Cat recipe

My absolute favorite food in the world is a Reese’s Peanut Butter cup. If I was able to eat these for breakfast lunch and dinner, I would be a happy mama! I like to eat Reese’s Peanut Butter cups frozen so they don’t get all melty. Of course now that Valentine’s Day is approaching, I am making chocolate for my loved ones. I wondered…could I recreate a Reese’s Cup?

There is something to be said for recreating a loved store-bought food which tastes just like it! I asked around to all of my taste testers, and they agreed this recipe pretty much hits the nail on the head! *Reese’s normally have milk chocolate, but I’m a dark chocolate lover and buy the dark cups, so adjust according to the cup you buy.

While I was editing the photos for the recipe, I could not decide on which one looked better.

  1. O.k. I’m just a bit confused. How much powdered sugar? Half the amount of peanut butter used, so if I have one cup peanut butter I used 1/2 cup of powdered sugar? I guess I’m just a bit confused. Thanks for clarifying!

    And I like either picture! They look so good! 🙂

  2. I like the first image, it’s more decorative for Valentine’s Day!

    Awesome Recipe, we might just have to try this, thank you and great blog!! <3

  3. I prefer the second picture for Pinterest. I just like the way the treats are aligned in the picture
