  Tried, true, time tested in Orangevale, CA  Dec 22, 2011
Would make this again.
I have been making these since 1978 or so when the peanut butter cups were still sold in a box of 40. Over the years I have varied the recipe but this year was the best as I was able to get a bag of mixed peanut butter cups (white, dark, and regular). This portion of my gift bag had six in all but they were two of each type. A huge hit. Also add an almond slice on the top to dress it up. 5 stars
