So my husband has a weakness. Basically anything peanut butter. I on the other hand like my chocolate so basically if he stops at the store buys anything Reese related its a win. So I turn the tables and like making these homemade Reese's Peanut Butter Cups in bar form for him because its a win for me as well!
Homemade Reese's Peanut Butter Cups Bars
Hubby is an Ohio State fan after all he's a huge fan of Buckeyes the candy and the teams. I learned that early on. ( Side note: is this a thing for all Ohio State people? Seriously let me know!)
I love making these for my Christmas Candy Tins I give to neighbors, friends, and co-workers. I make my Candy Cane Fudge and Reindeer Kisses and put them in these cute Christmas Tins (that many years I get lucky and find at the Dollar Store) and add a cute note and pass them out as gifts. I get the kids involved in baking and we have a blast.

I clicked on the red links, but nothing seems to bring up the recipe for the Homemade Reeses Bars. And it’s not just this recipe either. Several recipies, for some reason, forward to the page that teaches you how you can use your smart phone to make an extra $225.00/ month.
At this point, I don’t have a smart phone…but I would like to view the recipie(s).

That’s really odd I will look into why it is doing this. These recipes are still on the site so I’m not sure why there is a mix up. Thank you for letting me know.
