Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

These were always my children's favorite lunch box fare. I love them because they are quick to make and store well (if they last that long). Definitely worth a try if you haven't already.

Amazing ! Prep to ready in under 25 minutes :-)

I am not the best cook in the world, but for once, something turned out AMAZING! This tasted so good. It's even good for kids in dorm rooms. The Peanut Butter Filling alone was amazing.


I have made these more than once and they are highly addicting.

I have made this recipe for 35's addicting..if I don't have the milk chocolate chips..I use the 'Semi' chips...with 3 blocks of the White Almond bark...used for dipping other goodies...this works perfectly for the 'Perfect Reeses Pieces Cups flavor..

These are not baked at all???

I make these all the time at work. The football coach love them.

Loved it!!!!

I have always made these with milk chocolate chips instead of semisweet chocolate. They taste more like you'd expect a Reese Cup to taste, and they slice easier with the softer chocolate.

I made these last night.....and they are to die for!!!!!! Super simple and so yummy!!!

These really do taste very similar to Reese's Peanut butter cups. Delicious & super easy to make!

I made these for fathers day...big mistake. I should know that I have to "adjust" Mr. Foods recipes. The bottom layer was dry and crumbly and 1 bag of chocolate chips was not nearly enough chocolate. The chocolate doesn't adhere to the crust and breaks apart when cutting. The taste was OK but I have nearly an entire pan left after having a houseful of guests for dinner and that says a lot right there.

You made some mistakes. After assembling, you only refrigerate for 15 minutes, use a sharp knife to cut through into squares. The chocolate is not hard yet, then put back in fridge to completely cool. I wonder if you did not completely melt your butter before mixing with other ingredients? 12 ounces of chocolate is plenty, spread with a rubber spatula. I make these all the time and they are always a huge hit.

OMG...these are so-o-o-o-o SCRUMPTIOUS. I want to keep them all for myself, lol.

Yummy, I can hardly wait to have them for our quilting club. Pennymorag
