Tastes like Reece's Peanut Butter Cups!


  • 1 cup dry roasted salted peanuts
  • 1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 (1 lb) box confectioners' sugar
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • 2 cups peanut butter chips
  • 2 tablespoons butter


Place peanuts into bowl of good processor fitted with metal blade attachment. Pulse peanuts until finely chopped. Remove and place into small bowl. Place peanut butter and butter into large bowl. With hand-held electric mixer, beat until completely smooth. Add vanilla and beat, scraping down sides of bowl with rubber spatula as necessary. Slowly add confectioners' sugar and beat until combined. The mixture should be thick, line baking sheet with waxed papers. Roll peanut butter mixture into 1 inch balls. When they are rolled, cover sheet pan with plastic wrap and place into refrigerator for at least 1 hour. Meanwhile, place chocolate-peanut butter chips and unsalted butter into bowl and melt according to directions. Poke toothpick into center of each ball and dip into melted chocolate using spoon to drizzle over top of peanut butter ball, if necessary. Coat entire ball. Place on baking sheet and immediately sprinkle chopped peanuts over top. Place in refrigerator to harden. Remove toothpicks before serving. Place peanuts into bowl of good processor fitted with metal blade attachment. (I nixed the chopped peanuts and they turned out scrumptious!)
