I wanted candy.

I made fake Reese’s peanut butter cups. I didn’t put enough powdered sugar in the peanut butter so it was squidgy, but I nailed tempering chocolate, so I’m calling this a win.

    Leave it to you to make some crazy concoction instead of just going to the convenience store…

    How did they taste? I think of the inside of Reese’s cups as not really peanut butter. It’s… not as sweet as regular peanut butter? I’m not sure… it’s different somehow…
