Barbara, these are so rich and so yummy! Got to have a big glass of cold milk to go with them! My husband loves peanut butter cups! Thanks!

The perfect peanut butter cup! I simplified it a little and used chocolate "bark" candy coating instead of the choc chips, shortening and paraffin. I usually make peanut butter balls at Christmas time but decided to try the peanut butter cups instead - glad I did! Thank you for your recipe!
