This is really good as written, but since it was purported to taste like Reeses, and we were hoping it did, we judged it accordingly. It is close. If we hadn't hoped it was like Reeses, I think we would simply love it and adopt it for those rare occasions when we would make candy. The smell is JUST like Reeses. I have a son who loves Reeses (so we tried this to see if it would be just right for his birthday). I think this could be modified to be more Reeses-like, starting with using milk chocolate instead of semi-sweet. I like the semi-sweet myself, but that doesn't make it Reeses-like, if you know what I mean. There is also a particular flavor in Reeses that comes from corn syrup, so that is a must. Lastly, there is the texture of the of the peanut butter. I have a couple of 'fixes' in mind to try, but I'm not sure if either will work - I'll let you know if I find the 'just right' solution.
