Remember how I said I don’t make desserts often? Well, the last few weeks have been extremely hectic and stressful around here and I threw ALL notions of eating healthy out of the window. I know. It’s the WORSE thing you can do, and trust me, I’m paying for it now. But I was craving peanut butter so badly and wanted a peanut butter cup and of course, I don’t keep those in the house.

I remembered seeing a recipe for Reese’s Peanut Butter Hearts from Flour Me With Love back in February that sounded pretty easy to make and were adorable to boot! I found the recipe I had printed out and changed a few things (mainly the amount of sugar and used chunky peanut butter instead of creamy).

I have to say, I had two of these and they were TO DIE FOR (do you hear the sing-songy tone in my voice?). After my craving was satisfied, I did share the rest of them by taking them to cheering practice and let me tell you, there were some pretty happy little girls that night (and Mom’s too!) .

The only problem was that they were all gone and when hubby came home from his business trip and I told him about them, he was very upset that I didn’t save him any. (OOPS..don’t want to deny a man peanut butter and chocolate who has just arrived home after a week overseas and is jet lagged!).

So being the good wife that I am (heehee), I proceeded to make another batch of them at 10:30pm on a Friday night just for him. Sorry the picture isn’t the greatest, it was hard prying them away from the kids long enough to get any shot of them at all. ~Enjoy!

    Great recipe that’s close to my heart – I’m from Ohio where these little balls of deliciousness are called Buckeyes & they’re made in every kitchen in the state! We only dip three-quarters of the peanut butter ball in chocolate so that the treats resemble the buckeye nut that the state is famous for. Always a crowd pleaser 🙂
