CopyCat Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups Recipe

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.

    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. These look delicious! And I love both photos….

  4. I can’t wait to try these!! As far as pictures go, I prefer the clarity and brightness of the 1st 2 pictures without the titles, but I like the first titled shot best for Pinterest. :)

  5. I like the picture with both the heart and the cups.

  6. My last name is Reese so it’s a given that I love peanut butter cups right? These look awesome…

  7. Omg! This looks so good and right on time for Valentines Day!

  8. The look delish. I’d have to enjoy them all by myself since my son is allergic to chocolate and nuts :(

  9. I love chocolate/peanut butter combo. This looks so yummy!

  10. I’ve always wanted to make my own peanut butter cups, but still haven’t…these look great!

  11. Very cute idea. These babies are going to get gobbled right up at my house!

  12. I like the first picture and I am so going to make these…for just myself lol

  13. Oh yum – these look fantastic! And I love the heart shapes for V-Day!

  14. 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! :)
