Peanut Butter Cups

As I previously mentioned, these are tastier than Reese’s, but they are a pain to make. Not hard, just futzy. They are a long-standing tradition in our family. My mom used to make them, and when she stopped I started. I decided they were too much work last year and skipped them, opting for chocolate dipped peanut butter ritz sandwiches instead. I had several complaints so they are back this year.
