Rather than a cake for my son’s birthday party, I made a 4 pound milk chocolate peanut butter cup. Start with some of this:

Add some of this (a finer Kentucky vodka you cannot find at $7.99 a liter :ermm: :laugh: ):

    hahahaha me too, love Reese's more than anything; my wife picked up a one pound package of Reese's for my son, two 1/2 pound cups, he loved them, took him about 2 weeks to work his way though them. This one puts those to shame :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    Nicely done.

    Vodka is pretty funny, zip. We had a cheap distillery in Londonderry NH that made stuff that cost (in the 1980s) about 7.99 a fifth. Their name was Jenkins, and they made a Jenkins brand vodka for that price. Their off OFF brand vodka was 'Zhenka' with a faux Russian label like yours. It was 2.99 a fifth and smelled like rubbing alcohol.

    My dad opened my dorm fridge one day and the only thing in it was that and a bottle of tang.

    My head still hurts to this day

    Nice looking peanut butter cup. Is that the 'cake' for the family to each have a piece, or is it a present for him alone?

    My daughter's got a birthday coming up. She saw this and said I want that instead of cheesecake. (She first chose cheesecake over birthday cake.)

    If I'm not making my own bloody mix, I use Zing Zang, the best store bought mix out there. I prefer a Texas-made vodka though;

  • Zippy, I like the idea of adding the protein in the form of peanut butter to the chocolate to make a healthy and balanced meal, topped off by the vegetable drink!!!! :) Didn't know you were such a granoloa bar. B)

    Thanks for posting!

    Tammie, it's really easy & no cooking necessary. Start with a 10 inch pie tin & put about 1/2 a bag (11oz bag) of milk chocolate chips in then pop in the oven on the lowest setting for maybe 10 minutes, then spread the chocolate around & up the sides, pop in the fridge to harden. For the center, I mixed one pound of confectioners sugar with one 28oz jar of peanut butter with the kitchen aid until well incorported. Scoop it into the tin (it's kind of stiff, so I put plastic wrap on top & sort of hand worked it into shape). Then just pour on more melted chocolate spreading around to cover everything - into the fridge for a little while & that's it. It's about the easiest thing in the world to make & really good if you're a Reese's freak. The really cool thin is that this entire 4lb cup only cost about $7.00 to make

    between this & my $7 vodka i'm a pretty cheap date :laugh:

    I'm not proud of this, but when I went to college (freshman year), I arrived with my clothes, toothbrush, comb, radio, box of pencils, & a case of 1/2 gallons of Nikolai. I was partial at that time to mixing it either with pineapple juice or lemon koolaid (though when going the lemon route we also added grain & gin, you know, for a balanced approach); it was a massacre of brain cells

    the cake v. cup is an outstanding issue, party is actually tonight thus the lack of cut-into pictures. Wife finds it odd to serve a giant reese's cup to the family coming & thinks a 'real' cake is in order

    I have trouble with these institutions

    gotta agree, for the price Tito's is the best stuff out there. holds its own against Goose or Belvedere for half the price.
