Kids said that these are better than Reese’s! Very tasty. Has anyone tried using just 1 stick of butter successfully? I’ll let you know if it works! UPDATE: I made these with 1 1/2 sticks of butter with equally delicious results. I will update again trying 1 stick…UPDATE #2: Okay, I tried one stick of butter – the taste is still delicious!
