PHILADELPHIA, PA — Chocolate and peanut butter: one of the quintessential chocolate-lover’s combinations. There are lots of ways to enjoy this dynamic duo, but a certain chocolate candy company seems to have the perfect portion size all wrapped up in a peanut butter cup.

I usually indulge in one or two of these bite-sized holiday treats every year, just to taste. But I know there are plenty of you out there who will probably polish off the entire tray in a matter of minutes!
