Although nothing makes me happier than being in the kitchen, candy-making can be quite the debacle. Between melting and getting syrups to the correct temperature, there's so much room for error that aside from my favorite caramels, I rarely bother. But with Halloween on the horizon, a homemade take on classic candy seemed appropriate. Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (especially the holiday editions) are one of my all-time favorite treats, and I couldn't resist making my own by way of this recipe. Although they weren't quite as visually appealing as I'd hoped, these made for the perfect tasty October confection: smooth milk chocolate with a truly addictive peanut butter filling that I couldn't seem to stop eating straight out of the pot.
Wishing you all an absolutely delicious weekend!
