I just discovered this recipe from the blog The Girl Who Ate Everything. On, my! Tastes like a big peanut butter cup! Peanut butter cups are my husband's favorite and he absolutely loved these. The coconut is optional- I left it out because I wanted it to be as close to a real peanut butter cup as possible.
