Try It Tuesday

For weeks I had been searching for today’s Try It. I went to Walmart, Target, Crest, Homeland…every store I could think of, but nada.

Then, one day, I was picking up milk at Walmart and spotted it–the glorious concoction:

I was super excited to try this because, as you know, Reese’s are my jam! When I poured it in my mug and took a sniff, it seemed promising.

But, after I poured in my coffee, I was a wee bit disappointed. It was more chocolately than peanut-butter-chocolatey. And if I want chocolate on a mug, imma just make some Swiss Miss, know what I mean? 

Have you tried this? What did you think? 

Try It Tuesday!

I have made my love of peanut butter and chocolate no secret over the years. I’m seriously a little obsessed. So you can imagine my glee when I saw this tweet:

I have been waiting months, MONTHS for the new Reese’s cups to hit the stores. I mean, a Reese’s Cup filled with Reese’s Pieces?! I. COULD. NOT. WAIT. When I saw they were finally  out, this was my reaction:

My sister picked up a few at a local 7-11 and texted me the joyous news. I immediately went to her house and tried them out!

OMG, you guys. They looked like the Reese’s Cups we all know and love but they were better. Much, much better! With usual Reese’s Cups, the edges are hard and the peanut butter is a tad on the dry side. Not these, my friend. They were softer and the peanut butter was SUPER creamy! Suffice to say that if they take these off the market, I will protest! They. Are. DELISH!

 

Have you tried these? What did you think?

Try It Wednesday

Hello all! Since my internet was acting crazier than Amanda Bynes on Monday, my blog posts had to be pushed back.

So today you’re getting a Try It!

OMG. When I saw this on Pinterest, my salivary glands went into overdrive. I love all things chocolate and peanut butter, as you well know, so I HAD to try it!

First, I gathered my ingredients:

Oooh yeah!

Oooh yeah!

That’s right! All you need is: chocolate chips, Reese’s peanut butter cups, and evaporated milk.

First, get a 9X9 pan (I had to use an 8X8 because that’s all I had). Line the pan with foil and spray it with cooking spray. Place the peanut butter cups on the bottom (I had to cut some in half to fit).

I had to really try not to eat ALL of these.

I had to really try not to eat ALL of these.

After that, crush up about 10-12 peanut butter cups to be used later.

It seriously looks like dog poo.

It seriously looks like dog poo.

Then, melt 3 cups chocolate chips and a 14oz can of evaporated milk until smooth.

Nom, nom, nom.

Nom, nom, nom.

Pour the chocolate over the cups.

Behold the chocolatey goodness!

Behold the chocolatey goodness!

Then, sprinkle the crushed cups on top.

Eat all the fudge!

Eat all the fudge!

Let the fudge cool to room temperature, then put I the fridge. I did, and after an hour, it still looked the same. So I put it in the freezer to help it firm up (that’s what she said). After I was able to cut it up…It. Was. DELICIOUS. I’m TOTALLY doing this again!
