I have no idea why I have diabetes  Grin

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!

Starcakes- Almond bark is the chocolate coating that hardens when it is cooled.  There's actually no almonds in it.  Some people (read ME) make peppermint bark with white chocolate bark and crushed candy canes in it.  Once you melt it you can dip things in it or pour it into molds and after about 10 minutes it's hard.  It is my absolute favorite baking staple.

Gawd. Peanutbutter cups are my most favorite candy in the world. I have a pack every day before work. Maybe I should try making my own instead of spending about 3 bucks a week on candy. haha.

I never thought of just peanutbutter balls covered in chocolate. I'm really picky about my cups. I usually eat the edges half way around, and then eat all the peanutbutter part leaving the other half of the outer edge for the garbage because it's just too chocolate-y. Covering balls in an even layer of chocolate would totally prevent that extra chocolate problem!
