Reese’s Peanut Butter Bars. That’s what the experts said I should call these two-bite “Change Your Life” treats. Said in my best Steel Magnolias accent, which I happen to be watching tonight. We’ll come back to that.
I have this friend who is a huge Reese’s fan. So one year for her birthday I made her these Peanut Butter Brownie Bites…Of Love! They are as ooey gooey yummy as they look friends. Here’s that RECIPE.
Then there was the year I discovered how easy it was to make Homemade Peanut Butter Cups. Let’s just say this about those….WOW!!!
Check out the recipe here —>>> RECIPE
The following year I decided to try out a White Chocolate version of above mentioned Homemade Peanut Butter Cups. They were equally as tasty and quite festive if I do say so myself. RECIPE
Then somewhere, likely on Pinterest, I saw this fudge. This oh so sweet and creamy White Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge. We were in heaven. Sweet tooth heaven. Here’s Another RECIPE for you to try.
Since we’re on a peanut butter cup love fest together, there were these delightful treats that I made one year for my other bff chocolate/peanut butter loving friend.
Surround yourself with like-minded people and you’re sure to find someone with a stash of chocolate. And peanut butter if you’re lucky! Here’s how we put these Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Cup Stuffed Oreos together —>> RECIPE
So before I get to the recipe for Reese’s Peanut Butter Bars I must share that as I sat here at my kitchen table typing up this post, Steel Magnolias was fired up on the tv. I know you’ve seen this movie.
After all, I named my kid after the lead character, whether we had a boy or a girl, the name would be Shelby. A little Steel Magnolias text thread exchange with my Shelby.
I promise I’ll get to the recipe for two-bite “change your life” peanut butter bars. I just have to share one more text exchange. Hee.
