Did anyone else Reese Witherspoon’s hilarious instagram about Reese’s pieces?
Well, I’m sure you’ll be changing your name to Reese so you can call this puppy chow your own, it’s just that good. I found the recipe on pinterest from Mom on Timeout. I have been thinking about it and after successfully completing Whole30 I was wondering if I should make it…but hopefully my husband eats most of it 😉
I slightly changed the recipe to meet my own preferences but the inspiration is from the blog listed above. My adapted recipe is below. I didn’t want it to be overly sweet (like c’mon look at the ingredients!) so I used rice chex instead of chocolate, opted to not include peanuts and used chocolate almond bark instead of CandiQuik. The ingredients and proportions I used are below and steps are with the pictures.
Box of Rice Chex cereal (12.8 oz)
2- 3/4 cups powdered sugar divided into ziplock gallon bags
16 oz chocolate almond bark
1 cup reese’s peanut butter chips
1-10 oz bag of reese’s mini’s
1 bag of reese’s minatures, chopped either into 1/2 or 1/4
Start off by mixing a cup of peanut butter chips with Chocolate almond bark and melt to the almond bark directions, mine took just 90 seconds.
Because my dishwasher was running, I laid out half of my chex and drizzled with the peanut butter/almond bark mixture and then layered the second half and did the same on top rather than mixing in a bowl and quite frankly, I’m glad I did that bark is annoying to get out of bowls and I could just toss the parchment.
Take two gallon ziplock and put 3/4 cup of powered sugar in each bag, place half the mixture in each, zip and shake.
Unzip the bag and add the reese’s mini’s and chopped reese’s miniatures. I followed the other directions and honestly I don’t see any reason to throw the pieces in before. I think its probably easier to just pop them in at the end and do a quick mix, just be gentle so the chex don’t break.
How divine does this look? We can’t wait to eat some while trick or treaters come by Monday night…hopefully this keeps us from eating their candy, hopefully.
