I made these for a booth in Faneuil Hall in Boston years ago. I don't remember where the recipe came from but was told by a customer that these would be part of their daughter's childhood memories! They are super sweet and easy to make. SCRUMPTIOUS!

These are fantastic! They are the closest thing I have ever had to reeses peanut butter cups. They would have gotten the full 5 stars but we felt they were maybe a bit too generous in the sugar, and butter measurements. I think that if you cut back a bit on each it would still result in a great tasting little treat, and even save some guilt making them less calories. We could sorta taste the grittyness of the sugar and they were very rich. I did actually only use about 3 cups of confectioner's sugar because it was making a huge mess and I didn't want to open another bag after putting in the 3 cups thinking that it already looked like an awful lot of sugar anyway. I opted for some godiva bittersweet chocolate for the top. FANTASTIC! Coming in at over 7600 calories a batch this is not something you want to make for having around the house because though they are quite rich and filling it would be all too easy to eat them all up!
