I have been making these for a long time. People are always impressed. However, I too use the milk chocolate chips. I also add 2-3Tbs. of confection sugar to the peanut butter. It makes the PB filling taste more like the store version and less like a clump of peanut butter.

I've made a variation of this for years. I add a little peanut butter to the chocolate--more like Hershey's. Also, I use powdered sugar, graham cracker crumbs, and peanut butter for the filling. More like the real thing and not as rich. if you eat a Reese Cup, you'll notice there's 'some grit' to it--the graham cracker crumbs are perfect for this.

I found this recipe to be good but it is easier if you pipe the chocolate and peanut butter into the muffin cups (paper lined is easiest) with either a pastry bag, or my favorite, plastic bags. I let each layer harden in frige before adding the next. I preferred the flavor of milk chocolate to the semi-sweet, having tried both. Also, don't add too much peanut butter or it is like eating a huge tablespoon of peanut butter. I make buckeye balls every year and actually prefer the filling of those but the ease of these. I think I will be combining the two methods instead! Maybe just a softer, creamier version of the buckeye filling! Great idea though! Never even thought of it after 15 years of rolling and dipping buckeye balls!!!
