Peanut Butter Cups (better than Reese's)

It's better than the commercial ones because you can customise it to the way you like it. Darker chocolate, sweeter filling, any way you like it.

    Note: Mine actually set at room temp. And if you are not so particular about how they look, you can just do it in layers. It won't look like reese's but it tastes pretty awesome.
