Chocolate and peanut butter sweets are my family’s go-to choice when it comes to candy. Dan loves Reese’s Mini candies; the boys and I love it all. Special holidays like Valentine’s Day always mean chocolate peanut butter candies, whether we’re buying or making homemade. While I’ve tried to master copycat versions of Reese’s peanut butter cups, I think this is probably the closest I’ve ever gotten. These little hearts make a yummy Valentine for anyone (provided they don’t have a peanut allergy), be it family, friends, or even your neighbors.Chocolate covered peanut butter hearts Valentine's Day recipe {MamaBuzz}

    There are very difficult to make! make sure you don’t mind getting chocolate on your fingers when you make them. Make sure you have plenty of time to make them, too. My hearts kept dropping on me, oh well. Family still loved the taste!
