3-ingredient Peanut Butter Cups

Have you ever craved something sweet but then realized you wanted something salty, too? There's magic in satisfying both at once — without running to the store to pick up a Reese's peanut butter cup. Instead, turn your home into a candy factory and make your own using three simple ingredients: peanut butter, powdered sugar, and chocolate. It's the ultimate fusion of flavors, combining the nutty richness of peanut butter with the sweetness of powdered sugar, all encased in a luscious coat of melted chocolate. The best part? They're a breeze to make, with steps so easy that even a kitchen newbie can become a candy maker in no time.
