Peanut Butter Chocolate Hearts

I love Reese’s hearts around Valentine’s Day!  These taste just as wonderful as the actual thing, but make a darling gift to package up and give to friends and loved ones!

  1. Yum!!! Chocolate in any shape is delish to me... thanks for the recipe, I will be making these for Valentine's Day. Oh and you might want to check your local 99 cent or Dollar Tree stores for these heart shapes molds... because at $10 ea is a little much for my pockets. I found these at my local Dollar Tree just last week :) and actually... I pretty much see these every year at my local discount store. Just FYI.
  2. I'm so happy I found this! I too am on a budget this year and was looking for something adorable and handmade I could do. When I found these hearts and saw that you had used them for an inexpensive gift I knew I had to make them. I was lucky to get the last heart candy mold pan at Walmart (Jessie I wish I had seen your comment about the dollar store earlier! But I paid $3 for mine so not too bad). I just got done making them and popped them in the freezer, hopefully the s/o will love them tomorrow!
    • Hi Elizabeth, we have never had a problem with the peanut butter center being dry. If you used exact measurements. Was your butter totally softened at room temp? Sorry it didn't work out too well. We make these all the time and they are a family favorite. Be sure your measurements are exact. Too much powdered sugar or brown sugar could dry it out.
