I have made many versions of Reese's cups, but this one has the best texture. The taste is great and they have just the right mouthfeel to make them very satisfying. I made half the recipe of filling and the whole recipe of chocolate coating so that I could make them in my silicone giant peanut butter cup mold pan. I just divided half of the chocolate between the six cups and pushed it up the sides a bit and then put it into the freezer for a few minutes while I made the filling into 6 thick patties. Then I put the filling into the cups and spooned the rest of the chocolate over them to make peanut butter cups (I did put the chocolate back into the microwave for about 10 seconds first). The result is 6 huge, perfectly shaped peanut butter cups that are so good that I had to stop myself from eating a whole one so I wouldn't get a bellyache. The only change that I made is that I used the microwave to melt the chocolate and I used a huge (about 11 oz.) Lindt chocolate bar so the chocolate is very creamy and smooth. Thanks, Paula...DH and I are very grateful!

These are phenomenal. Utterly fantastic. I've made it for multiple parties and have been begged at each for the recipe. I like to keep mine refrigerated, however, I do cut them before the chocolate is completely set. This helps to prevent the chocolate from cracking. I use the non-stick foil and the bars come out so easily.

These are by far the best I've ever had. The are just amazing. Every time I try one of this lady's recipes, I am never dsisappointed.I pattted down the pnut butter layer pretty good, keeps that layer from crumbling. Excellent remarks by the reviewers, and the pizza cutter idea is marvelous! Thanks Paula, this is a keeper for sure and will be made and enjoyed by all at Christmas time. We really enjoyed these.

My husband and his friends devoured these. I thought they were good too, very rich, and simple to make. Thanks!

My son made these the other night when he had a peanut butter cup craving. They were relatively easy to make and he loved them!

I don't have to buy store-bought Reece's anymore! These are so yummy and really hit the spot when I need my "fix!" I've made these at least three times and they are great! Thank you for posting your recipe!

I'm giving this a 5 star rating since everyone in my family loved it even my DH who for some strange reason is not a big fan of chocolate and peanut butter. I on the other hand am a huge fan of chocolate and peanut butter but I found them to be a bit too sweet. It is something I plan to fix for dessert when we host church youth group functions as I know the kids will love it! Thanks for posting another one for the keep file Paula. Made for the 24th AUS/NZ Recipe Swap.

These are just heavenly Paula. I agree with Lainey in that they are a much simpler way to do buck-eyes. I should have read the reivews a bit more carefully as my chocolate cracked while cutting with a hot knife. Of course what's a little cracked chocolate....as the taste remains the same. I stuck mine in the fridge for a few hours and then set them on the counter for about an hour to soften some. Thanks for a keeper Paula. Made for I Recommend Tag!~
