Chocolate covered peanut butter candies are easy to make and taste pretty close to a Reese's peanut butter cup!
Step 1: Ingredients
Time: 30 mins
Makes: 18-20 chocolate covered peanut butter candy
2 cups peanut butter
3 cups powered sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
12 oz bag of melting chocolates
Step 2: Make the Peanut Butter Filling
Place the choloate in your chocolate melter. if you don't have one you can melt your chocolate in the microwave.
In a microwaveable bowl melt the butter and peanut butter. About 1 minute. Mix well.
Next, add the vanilla and powered sugar and mix well.
Step 3: Shape the Peanut Butter Filling
Shape the Peanut butter filling into an egg shape or whatever shape you want. My daughter's helped with this part ;)
Place the Peanut butter filling onto a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper.
Place them in the freezer for 15 minutes.
Step 4: Covering With Chocolate
Drop the hard Peanut butter filling into the melted chocolate and cover.
Remove, it from the melted choolate. Tap the candy lightly on the side of the bowl to remove excess chocolate.
Place back on parchment paper and place back into freezer for 10 minutes.
