Reese's is one of my all time favorite chocolate candy, hands down. Actually, it's not one of my all time faves, it is my all time favorite. I could eat Reese's for breakfast, lunch and dinner-no questions asked. With that said, I thought it would be fun to make my own Reese's. These were super fun and easy to make. I got the recipe from My Kitchen Cafe, which is a tremendously fabulous food blog for all you bloggers out there. This entire process took about 20 minutes and they tasted exactly like Reese's PB cups!! I put these in cute candy boxes with pretty tissue paper and elastic gold bows and they looked straight out of the Reese's factory! Try these :)

Solid Peanut Butter Cups 
12 ounces melted chocolate (I used 9 ounces semi-sweet squares and 3 ounces white chocolate squares)
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup confectioner's sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Melt chocolate according to package directions, taking care not to overheat. I melted the semisweet and white chocolate separately and then mixed together. To melted chocolate add peanut butter, sugar and vanilla. Mix well. Spoon or pipe (I used a decorating bag with a large round tip) chocolate mixture into small baking cups. Refrigerate until set. Enjoy!
