I ♥ Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. I ♥ this recipe!

It's not often that I see a recipe, got out and buy the ingredients and make it pronto! Well, this one I did. Why, because it's quick and easy and sounded SO good! I can tell you first hand...IT IS all that and a bag of chips! This is going to become one of my "stand-bys" because it is fun, looks like you spent hours in the kitchen, and tastes...well, you know what a peanut butter cup tastes like, so just imagine it nestled into a fillo cup and topped with additional nuts! Oh, YUM!

INGREDIENTS

    1 box (1.9 oz) mini– fillo shells (15 in box)
    15 miniature peanut butter cups (from a 12-oz bag)
    1 can (7 oz) whipped light cream

PREPARATION

1. Heat oven to 350ºF. Line a rimmed baking sheetwith foil. Place fillo shells on baking sheet.

2. Place a peanut butter cup in each shell. Bake 5 minutes until chocolate softens. With small metal spatula or knife, flatten and even out chocolate in fillo cup. Let stand at room temperature until cooled.

3. Top each filled cup with whipped cream. Sprinkle with chopped salted peanuts, if desired.

Each of these is 97 calories. A manageable number☺
