Well, who doesn’t like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, right? These are so easy to make, and I swear they taste exactly like Reese’s, even though they are a slightly different shape. But with some nuts sprinkled on top, how cute are they?
1 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter
4 Tablespoon Butter (cut into small chunks)
2 Cups Powder Sugar
8 oz Semisweet or Bittersweet (good quality) Chocolate for melting (chopped)
1 Tablespoon Shortening
In a microwave safe bowl, melt butter and peanut butter together in the microwave (start with 1 minute on high… you just want the little chunks of butter to melt, but do not want the peanut butter to get too liquidy). Stir together until smooth.
