Better than Reese’s

I’m back this week with another recipe to share! I also found this one on Pinterest. I feel like at this point they should just sponsor me if that’s even a thing because I use Pinterest for pretty much everything in my life.

This recipe is literally heaven. They’re like super big, rich Reese’s & if you know me you know chocolate & peanut butter together are my weakness. They’re also super easy to make because I also don’t like anything really involved when it comes to the kitchen. When I’m hungry, I’m hungry.

Ingredients: 2 cups creamy peanut butter

3/4 cup salted butter (softened)

1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

3 3/4 cup powdered sugar

2 packages (1 lb each) Chocolate Candy Coating

Prep time: 1 hour

Serves: 55(ish)

 

 

Mix the peanut butter, salted butter and vanilla together in a large bowl. Then add in

the powdered sugar, a little at a time. I know the recipe calls for a lot of powdered

sugar, but unfortunately, you’ll actually probably need all of it. I tried it with 2 cups &

then put it in the fridge to harden, but the dough wasn’t stiff enough so I ended up

using 3 cups & it was just right. Once you’ve added enough powdered sugar, make a

big ball of dough in the middle of the mixing bowl, cover & place it in the fridge to

harden for about 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, take out the ball of dough & make into

smaller balls & place on a wax paper lined baking sheet & then place in the refrigerator

again for another 15 minutes.

You will want to wait & make the chocolate as soon as you’re ready to cover the peanut

butter balls because the chocolate will harden quickly. I had to reheat mine multiple

times during the dipping process. I used actual chocolate candy coating, but I’m sure it

would work with melted chocolate chips too. So once you’re ready, melt the chocolate

in 15 second intervals in the microwave & stir it after every 15 seconds. Then take the

balls & place them on a fork & place into the bowl of chocolate. Cover fully & place

back on the baking sheet. Once they are all fully covered, place in the refrigerator to

harden.

P.S. I don’t know why the spacing is off in this post! :/ I think it has something to do with how I typed it…

What’s your favorite type of chocolate? I think you all know mine…

with love,
