      Oh bummer! Refrigerate for 24 hours, then let it sit out for 2 hours and taste again. This happened to me once but it tasted fine after this… not quite sure why! Maybe the brand of peanut butter is too salty?

    I can’t use cream cheese because I have a lactose intolerant family member. Do you think I could substitute the cream cheese for marshmallow fluff? I have done this in the past with previous recipes and they have turned out fine, but I’m not sure about this one.

        I actually ended up trying it and it turned out wonderful! I used a 10oz jar of marshmallow fluff and a dollop of whipped cream. It tasted like peanut butter pie filling. Thanks for the recipe, I will be trying the cream cheese version soon!

    I made exactly the way it says, and it tastes like straight butter… not to mention the 1 cup of peanut butter cups you say to use is barely significant. This picture even looks like it uses way more peanut butter cups (mixed in, not garnished). Sorry, but there’s got to be more accurate measurements for this.

      1 cup of CRUSHED mini Reese’s peanut butter cups is a lot. Sorry, but I’m assuming you didn’t follow the instructions as noted. And the garnish was separate from the measurements. Also, as noted, try refrigerating overnight before serving to let the flavors settle.

        No I assure you as an avid hobby-time cook (not a professional or anything, just love to cook, bake and be in the kitchen) I followed these directions.. yes a cup of crushed reeses cups… if you take the garnishment off the top of the dip in that picture above… It still looks like there’s more than a cup crushed into the dip, my dip does not have nearly that much visual reeses crushed up.. haha oh well not a big deal, I added another cup, and 1 1/4 cup powdered sugar… I know that sounds Luke a lot but that’s what it is missing.. the peanut butter mixed with the butter and a whole block of cream cheese is too much and over powers the little bit of brown sugar and vanilla that’s in it. With the powdered sugar it becomes more like a cookie dough mix… This really saved a whole bowl that I almost threw out… Alternatively I found most people who make these dips make it a little less fattening by using Greek yogurt instead of cream cheese and butter, haha.. oh well still good and Paula Dean would be proud!
