These were easy to make and tasted like Reese Peanut Butter Cups. Very rich and can only eat a few at a time but very hard to stop. Will make again. Would be fun to take to a gathering to share as a dessert.
In this classic confection from the Buckeye State, creamy peanut butter and chocolate combine to create an adorable replica of an Ohio tree nut.
