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.

Yummm! The graham crackers combined with the peanut butter adds a slight texture to the filling - and tastes great. If you're a peanut butter chocolate lover, then you're going to LOVE this recipe. These homemade peanut butter cups would make great gifts too! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
