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 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. :)

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

    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! :)
