    These are not your ordinary peanut butter cups. The filling is creamy, smooth and oh so good. I was looking for a recipe close to what I could get at Rocky Mountain Chocolate before they changed the recipe and ruined them. While making buckeyes I got the inspiration to try. I find buckeyes too sweet and they don't have as big a peanut butter flavor as I was craving. This is what I came up with. Close in my opinion but then again it's been nearly 7 years since I had one from Rocky Mountain Chocolate. But these sure do fill the void. These are meant to be rich and decadent. The use of silicon cups makes it much easier to coat with chocolate than paper would be. When you peel back the silicon, you're left with a perfect beautiful rippled cup. It leaves you thinking "did I really make these". I experimented with the chocolate. I preferred milk chocolate to semi sweet chocolate chips. I used Belgian fondue chocolate (comes in wafers), it melted easier and smoother than chocolate chips. The chips melted in your hands fast and was a little more messy to eat. I also preferred regular peanut butter to light. It gave me the consistency I desired. But use what you like. Makes 12 but you might want to share one with a friend, or maybe not!

    Recipe #230137

    These are amazing! Better than York's because the chocolate is so much thicker. The yield is a guess as the recipe is from a friend who made them at Christmas and gave them as gifts. Fortunately, I was one of the recipients. This recipe has been updated to add more details after questions from reviewers. Cooking time is really drying time for the centers.

    Recipe #101027

    Delicious creamy center covered with melted milk chocolate. A favorite around Christmas time.

    Recipe #142931

    This puts store bought peanut brittle to shame. I prefer to use the skinless peanuts because I think the skins are bitter. The amount listed below for the peanuts is if you're using Virginia peanuts. If you're using Spanish peanuts then reduce the amount of peanuts to 1 1/2 cups. Be sure to watch the candy carefully the first time you make it.

    Recipe #188262

    We usually make this candy for Christmas,but I have also made this candy for Baby and Bridal showers. Very Creamy and smooth, Delicious!

    Recipe #186187

    Bing bars. A great Christmas candy to make. A good friend of mine gave me this recipe and is now a favorite in my family. Very popular in the mid west, but sometimes hard to find the cherry chips in other locations. May have to ask your grocer to order them in.

    Recipe #186833

    I got this recipe from my mother. When I was in grade school, we used to make these every Christmas as gifts for my teachers--they're a great project for kids to help with. Pink with strawberry flavoring is traditional, but you can experiment with other flavors and colors too. Yield is estimated.

    Recipe #166214

    My niece made these for our 4th of July party and they were gone before dessert was even served! Everyone loved them and kept going back for one more of "those pretzel things"! So easy to make- a definite for my Christmas cookie baskets.

    Recipe #95220

    I came up with this version incorporating my favorite ingredients! Tastes even better than Chunky Candybars!

    Recipe #101148

    Peppermint extract and chocolate chips -- both white and semisweet -- give this melt-in-your-mouth candy a familiar after-dinner-mint flavor.

    Recipe #183943

    My mom decided to try these Snickers-like candy, and our family fell in love with them!!! They are very rich, so cut into small pieces!!! Also, each layer has to be refrigerated before adding the next, so plan ahead. The time is worth it though!!

    Recipe #70192

    This is from my favorite candy book "Chocolates and Petits Fours" by Beverly Sutherland Smith. Whenever I need a candy for a gift basket this is the book I go to. The serving portions on this is dictated on what size you cut the strips into. Make sure you press this very firmly or it will not hold together.

    Recipe #180270

    This is from "The Book of Chocolates and Petits Fours" by Beverly Sutherland Smith, a cookbook I use often when I want to make something special for a gift basket. Some of the cooking time on this recipe is actually time to allow the fruit to marinate.

    Recipe #180269

    These make up into very nice candy, good enough to give in a gift basket. Another recipe from my favorite Candy cookbook by Beverly Sutherland Smith. Most of the cooking time is time spent either marinating the fruit mixture, or allowing candies to firm.

    Recipe #180405

    From my sister ... Delicious! I highly doubt it will last the entire 2 weeks that it will keep for ;) This is a great gift to make at Christmas time and to put into a decorative tin!

    Recipe #95049

    This recipe came from my friend Mim. I make this for Christmas, it is so quick and easy. I find it quicker to buy fruit and nut chocolate but if you buy plain chocolate, add peanuts.

    Recipe #175439

    In just 15 minutes its ready to cut into squares! This fudge is really good. It was handed down by 3 generations and will stay in the family forever!

    Recipe #153028

    This is such a delicious fudge and has the best taste ever. Very simple to prepare.

    Recipe #151323

    This fudge is so easy to make! I promise if I can do it so can you! It is so rich in flavor it leaves your mouth watering. It will not last long in your home!
