  1. Paula, such good news about your Mom!! Chemo is such a good guy/bad guy treatment and I’m glad for her to not have to have the last treatment. Your peanut butter cups look so simple and pretty sure…no definitely sure….I will be making these to share with my neighbors as a little treat!! Thanks for sharing!!

  2. These look so good and so easy! I wonder if I could sub white chocolate chips for the candy melts, since I have those on hand. I might have to try that!
