    The concept is good, but who needs so much candy? I cut this in half and did not add that many peanut butter cups. ( Less than one bag.) It made an OK summer dessert, once I took the candy off of mine. Will I make it again? Doubtful. Picture looks better than this tastes!

    I love all things chocolate and peanut butter and especially Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. When I saw this recipe, I knew I just had to try it. I made it for my small group from church and they all loved it. I am making it again for the family Christmas get together.
