Try these delicious, all-natural Vanilla Butter Fudge treats next time you're craving something sweet. They taste like Reese's peanut butter cups without all the nasties!
I have this thing with Reese's...
Growing up, they were mine and my dad's favorite sweet treat. We would always buy the individually wrapped Reese's and eat them on our long rides back home from town. They are nostalgic for me and always remind me of my dad.
Since the real deal is way bad for you (I mean what the hell is a 'PGPR Emulsifier'), I've created an easy and tasty alternative for all of you peanut butter lovers.
