This is the second time I made this recipe, but this time I took the suggestions of 2 reviewers. First, I didn't use paper cups; instead, I used oil spray directly on the muffin tin. (last time everything stuck to the little paper cups) The finished peanut butter cups popped out easily. Second, I took the suggestion of adding 1/4 cup crushed honey graham crackers and some vanilla to the peanut butter mixture. Adding a little bit of butter to the chocolate was also a helpful idea. The finished product was absolutely delicious.

Shouldn't have made these. My husband and I have been on a health kick, but I found these and wanted to "try them". Honestly, the first day I didn't really care for them and almost gave them all away. But the next day I tried one again and LOVED it. Now I have to keep disciplining myself not to eat anymore. They are now in the freezer...where they will stay for a while. The thinner the chocolate shell, the better. Oh, and I also used them without liners. I just sprayed the muffin pan with oil and they popped right out after being in the freezer for a bit. No oily residue or taste either.

I dont understand why no one has tried these yet!! It may seem time consuming because the recipe says it takes two hours..but that's just waiting for them to harden (which if you put them in the freezer doesn't take as long as you think). These are better than the regular Reese's(R) peanut butter cups!! So yummy and so much cheaper to make yourself!! Even my husband, who is candy and cookie making challenged made these! Definately worth the wait!
