Hope you all had a wonderful Easter! If you’re like me, you probably have a bunch of candy leftover, and you’re trying to figure out what to do with it. This recipe will help you get rid of some of that candy, and it’s so easy to make that it doesn’t involve and actual baking at all. All you need is a stove and a microwave and you’re good to go.
Now, if you’ve been following this blog for a few months, the fudge in this recipe might sound familiar, and that’s because it’s peanut butter filling in these peanut butter bars. That’s right; master 1 recipe and use it in another. If you’ve never tried that recipe before, 1. you should; it’s very simply, and 2. you can do this one without knowing that one.
Oh, and one other thing: this post is not sponsored by Reese’s in any way, shape, or form. I just have a lot of Reese’s pieces and needed to put them to use. 🙂
What You Need
- 24 sandwich cookies
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1/3 cup crushed Reese’s Pieces
- 1/2 cup salted butter
- 2 graham cracker sheets
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1/2 cup Reese’s Pieces eggs (regular Reese’s Pieces will work)
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
How You Do It
- Crush the sandwich cookies, using either a food processor or a baggie and a rolling pin.
- Melt the butter.
- Combine the cookies and butter.
- Press into pie pan or whatever mold of your choice.
- Sprinkle over crushed Reese’s Pieces and press into crust. When done, place in fridge for at least 20 minutes.
- Crush graham crackers and set aside.
- Begin to make the filling by melting butter on the stove.
- Once melted, keep pot on stove and add in the peanut butter. Stir until smooth.
- Remove pot from stove. Add the sugar and graham cracker crumbs.
- Pull crust out of fridge and press fudge over crust.
- In a microwave, melt chocolate chips 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between, until chocolate is smooth.
- Sprinkle Reese’s Pieces Eggs over fudge, pressing down.
- Drizzle chocolate over fudge. When done, place back in fridge for at least 30 minutes.
- When chilled, remove from fridge. If you’d like, cute fudge into pieces.
My favorite part about these is that they’re just so full of peanut butter!
And the crushed eggs on top provide a pop of color that’s so ~spring~!
