In a large mixing bowl combine
1 cup peanut butter (I like smooth)
6 tabelspoons butter (softened)
2 cups sifted powdered sugar
Using a dough cutter cut the ingredients together til crumbly

melt 24 ounces chocolate almond bark in double boiler

For peanut butter balls:roll into small balls (arond 1 inch) and lay on foil lined cookie sheet and chill in fridge 20 minutes to dry out and to get firm

dip individually into the chocolate

drag fork across the pan to remove excess chocolate

and place on foil lined cookie sheet

For Reese cups spoon about a tablespoon of almond bark into foil cupcake liner

swirl around the bottom til it is covered completely

take a small amount of the peanut butter mixture

and shape into a flat circle

press onto the chocolate in the cupcake liner

and spoon more chocolate on top

and smooth to the edges

chil for 10 minutes
unwrap and enjoy!

Now grab a glass of milk and make some
If you have any chcolate left over you can always cover some strawberries!

Oh these look so great! I actually think I have all the ingredients on hand to make these as well!

These look so delicious. I might make some tomorrow.
But then I will have to find a way to hide them from my three hungry flatmates!!!

I will just use normal chocolate, I have never heard of chocolate bark here in NZ and I use normal choc to roll truffles in all the time and I've never had a problem.
Mmm, yum!

I know several people that use chocolate chips or even chocolate bars (think:Hershey's) and they have great results.  Hope you enjoy them!

I don't even know what bark is, but is it just cooking chocolate?
