My daughter loves Reese's cups and she says these taste just like them! With this recipe, I usually end up with a lot more filling than chocolate because I make them in muffin tins, so I just save the filling in the fridge or freezer to make another batch. Or, you could spread the filling into a 9x13 pan and then spread the chocolate over the top.

Peanut butter and chocolate lovers, this homemade candy is for you. The peanut butter filling is creamy but firms up to hold the chocolate. Combining graham crackers with peanut butter adds a slight texture to the filling. We loved these straight out of the fridge for an afternoon treat. Great for parties, a homemade gift, or an easy chocolate peanut butter dessert. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
