I also scaled down the recipe by following a previous review and followed their advice. The snack turned out great! I love Reece's and this is a good fix for when I need my peanut butter and chocolate! I used some baking chocolate chips for my chocolate glaze --it was easy and yummy!

These are fabulous!!! They taste EXACTLY like Reese's peanut butter cups only better!!!! I paired this down to really about 6 balls by starting with 1 TBSP butter and adding the peanut butter and confectioner's sugar to taste. I didn't think they were too sweet that way because I made them as sweet as I thought the Reese's cups taste. Then I melted a little bit of Scharffen Berger semisweet dark chocolate and drizzled it over the peanut butter balls and then chilled for around 10 minutes. Totally fast and easy recipe for a wonderful result!!! Thank you so much for the recipe!!
