Am I allowed to share a recipe from Nigella Lawson's "How to Be a Domestic Goddess"? I don't want to break any rules but this is a really basic recipe and it's so easy and so good; plus, it might give you an incentive to buy the book which is really excellent (she writes wonderfully and everything in it sounds and looks completely delicious, it's like comfort reading). It's all in my own words anyway, with extra asides for added "I wish she'd shut the heck up"-ness. Anyway, we don't really have Reese's peanut butter cups over here (in Ireland) but I did manage to find some in a bagel shop once and I was really unimpressed after tasting these babies.

In short:

1. Stir
50g dark muscovado sugar
200g icing sugar
50g unsalted butter (I just used regular, I didn't notice a difference)
and 200g smooth peanut butter
together in a bowl until smooth(ish, it might be a little lumpy but that's still okay). Press the mixture into a lined brownie tin (eh, I don't think it matters what you press it into really, you can make it whatever thickness you like but these are best small and thin. I used a 23cm/9inch-ish tin, which is what's recommended).

Melt
200g milk chocolate
100g plain chocolate
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
(again, suit yourself)
however you like, BUT if you're using a microwave you might want to check on it and stir it occasionally. I accidently burned mine but luckily, simultaneously had the delicious realisation that burnt chocolate actually tastes like brownies.

Spread the melted chocolate goop onto the base, and put it in the fridge to harden. Cut it into tiny wittle squares (or eat in one big go).

Enjoy! Cheesy

We generally don't get Reese's over here, but from what I've tasted, I think they're better!
