YOU GUYS. Reese’s. Peanut Butter. Crack. People are always telling me that my crack candy recipe should come with a warning, and this version DEFINITELY does. I’ve taken my basic Christmas Crack recipe and swapped out the chocolate for Reese’s peanut butter. Yes, oh, yes, this peanut butter crack candy is highly addictive but worth every calorie.
REESE’S PEANUT BUTTER CRACK CANDY
REESE’S CRACK CANDY INGREDIENTS
You can find the Reese’s peanut butter chips in the baking aisle and the mini Reese’s cups in the candy aisle. I chose to cut my mini cups in half so you get a cross-section of those beautiful cups, but you could just as easily keep them whole.

STORING OR GIFTING THE CRACKER CANDY
After the candy hardened, I packaged it in 8-ounce mason jars and added a gift tag. It is imperative that I get this candy out of the house, or I will sit and shame eat the whole batch. If you would like to add the warning tag to your gift jars, you can find the free printable version in my Freebie Gallery.
If you are keeping the candy at home, you should keep it in an airtight container and store it in the fridge or freezer. If you freeze the candy, allow it to come up to room temperature again before serving.
