Reese Peanut Butter Chocolate Poppycock, and More!

Reese Peanut Butter Chocolate Poppycock, and More!

When I got home from vacation I was really excited to see that I had my Reese Peanut Butter Chocolate Spread waiting for me to get to work taste testing and creating recipes! Of course this work started with a spoon in hand… tasting right from the jar. Imagine delicious sweet and salty peanut butter with rich yummy chocolate. After creating one recipe, the ideas kept flowing, so I made two more! Here I bring you three quick and easy treats you can make with a jar of Reese Peanut Butter Chocolate Spread! Buy two jars though, just so you have one to eat solely from the spoon. 🙂

The first idea I had came to me as soon as I had the product. It just seemed natural. Poppycock! No, I am not swearing at you; poppycock is an irresistible treat that is made with nuts and sticky syrup. And wouldn’t Reese Peanut Butter Spread go well with that combination? Of course!

This treat is perfect to take on a road trip, or camping (which is what I did), or keep it a sealed container in your snack cupboard! It won’t last long in there though (not because it will spoil, but because it will be eaten!)

Next up because I really like the sweet and salty combination, I thought of an easy way to make a quick sweet and salty treat. Reese Peanut Butter and Chocolate dipped pretzels! Bag these up and give them out as treats, or put them in a bowl and eat them up all yourself!

They look so pretty too, I have to say!

  • 2 oz dark bakers chocolate
  • 3 Tbsp Reese Peanut Butter Chocolate Spread

Instructions

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place chocolate and Reese Peanut Butter Chocolate Spread in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. Mix well.
  3. Dip pretzels in the mixture and let drip. Place on parchment paper and chill in refrigerator. Keep pretzels chilled to keep chocolate from melting.

Recipe Notes

Time in microwave will depend on your microwave strength. 30 seconds might be enough or you might need more.

Lastly I couldn’t get enough of the sweetness and I liked the idea of having something chewy so I played around with the idea of a toffee with crunchy, salty peanuts added in.

Reese

The taste of this almost reminds me a bit of an Eat-More bar, and I love Eat-More bars! So basically I ate all of these almost entirely on my own!
