    Hi. How much does 1 “stick” of butter weigh? And what is a large peanut butter cup? I’m in Australia & these 2 items aren’t common. I’m guessing they’re Reece’s peanut butter cups!?

      1 stick of butter is 1/2 a cup of butter. Which is 4 ounces of Butter. Hope this helps. And regular Reeses Peanut buter cups normally come in a large size, so you are correct.
