Homemade Peanut Butter Cups

And this is why I love fall.

Fall is the only time of the entire year that is practically solely devoted to food, starting with Halloween. It’s like the inaugural sugar rush to set you up for Thanksgiving and Christmas’s treats to come. A quick holiday to stretch your tummy muscles for occupying the absolute feasting of the next two months. Whoever decided to create a holiday that completely centers itself on the consumption of candy was really onto something.

An incentive such as Halloween seems like the perfect excuse for making homemade peanut butter cups. Smooth little tidbits of chocolate filled with creamy, sugary peanut butter encapsulate all of my favorite candylicous flavors. Not to mention how simple they are to make. Requiring only a handful of everyday staples, these peanut butter cups are great for throwing together when you want a quick munchie and have already eaten all the packaged Halloween candy in your house.

Can we just take a moment to drool over this chocolate?

I got a few bars of Scharffen Berger on sale at the grocery store and they have been beyond amazing—so creamy and so smooth!

But, chocolate geekery aside, homemade peanut butter cups are pretty darn awesome. No doubt your house is currently filled to the brim with all shapes and sizes of candy, waiting for oodles of trick or treaters to come bang their candy-coated hands on your front door (unless you live in a neighborhood of octogenarians like I do). What I’m saying is, take a couple minutes to make a batch of these goodies just for yourself. Nothing looks worse than a grown adult wrestling the last Snickers from the hands of a tiny Batman.
