 Homemade Mini Chocolate and Peanut Butter Cups

Peanut Butter Cups

When I was a kid, I kid you not, those sweet chocolaty peanut butter cups from Reese were the cat’s pajamas.  I would’ve traded nearly anything to get my tiny little hands on a package of them.  Tell me you didn’t feel the same way.  Tell me you didn’t also dream, no fantasize, about there being one extra peanut butter cup in that orange package.  Was it really just me?  I was such a glutton. Perhaps I still am….

I fall victim to the peanut butter and chocolate combination every. Single. Time.  My willpower is pretty much non existent for any yummy treat, and these Mini Peanut Butter Cups are no exception.  They are perfect.
