If there is one thing that doesn’t last long in this house, it’s Reese Cups. With Easter right around the corner, I decided to attempt to find a copycat recipe that might do our favorite candy justice. It was so much easier than I expected.
- 1 cup Peanut Butter
- 1/4 cup Butter
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1 1/2 Confectioners Sugar
- 8 oz Chocolate Melting Chips
** I recommend Reese Peanut Butter and Hershey Melting Chocolates.**
- Melt the peanut butter and butter together. (About one minute in the microwave.)
- Stir together until smooth.
- Add vanilla extract. Stir in confectioners sugar 1/4 cup at a time.
- Shape into eggs and place onto wax paper. Put into freezer for 15 minutes to set.
- Melt chocolate. Place peanut butter eggs into chocolate and coat both sides. Place back onto wax paper. Put back into freezer for 20 minutes.
- Enjoy cold or room temperature. Store in refrigerator.
My husband was very impressed with how they turned out. I had so much fun making them too! They aren’t going to last very long, but now that I know how to make them, I am not worried about it! Have fun making your very own, delicious Reese Eggs. I can’t wait to try and shape them for every holiday!
