12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS GOODIES (Day 11): Homemade Peanut Butter Cups

Day 11 of 12 Days of Christmas Goodies
Homemade Peanut Butter Cups
I have been making these Homemade Peanut Butter Cups for years. An ole' neighbor of mine shared them with me over 15 years ago, she got the recipe from her Italian mother-in-law who has been making them for many years. I have no idea where she got the recipe or if she made it up herself, but it's DELICIOUS! The recipe is so simple and everyone loves them. (just a note that my chocolate came out a little too light this time). I made a huge batch and divided them up into my kids teacher goodie bags that they will be giving away on Friday (the LAST day of school before Christmas break... YAHOOO!)

Grab Our Button & the Blog Hop Code if you wish to display the Linky on your own Blog. Or just link up and play along with us as we gather a ton of THEME recipes for the next 12 days.
