2-ingredient Peanut Butter Cups Recipe

Two-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cups Recipe

As you may or may not know, The first Peanut Butter Cup,was created in 1928 by The H.B. Reese Candy Company. It was first called “Penny Cups” because they only cost one cent at that time! H.B. Reese had a hard time getting a candy company off the ground. After five whole years in his basement, the Reese’s cups were created and his candy company got off the ground. Interestingly enough, Reese was attempting to help a commercial customer who wasn’t getting his supply of chocolate covered peanut butter candies fast enough and needed Reese to fill the order faster. It was important to Reese that he used quality ingredients so he used Hershey’s chocolate and high-quality peanut butter. It was also said that he used a secret ingredient or two (sounds legit). This was Reese’s third attempt at creating a successful candy company and I am sure he is glad he kept trying, as our we. The peanut butter cup in this recipe and in many recipes all over the world, resembles the first peanut butter cup from 1928. History tastes great, doesn’t it?

Combining chocolate with peanut butter is no secret, even if these candies were created in 1928, the practice of combining the two ingredients had been done years before. With good reason too, the saltiness of peanut butter combines with the sweetness of chocolate creates a common “sweet and salty” snack that everyone can enjoy. But not too sweet, not too salty, just right.
