  1. I made these last night and OMG, there taste exactly like a fresh chocolate peanut butter cup. I really love them. I am going to cut them into squares and bring them on a trip with me. Just hoping they dont melt. They really were super easy to make. No mixer or any appliances needed either. For a snack, a small square goes a long way. They are super rich; not necessarily heavy but rich. I can see adding crushed pretzels to the chocolate top or mixed into the chocolate top for a salty twist.
