As much as I try to eat healthy I am still going to have to satisfy a chocolate craving. I have always been a chocolate lover and most likely will always be a chocolate lover. I have my favourties just like other chocolate lovers and I can bet that 9 times out of 10 we all pretty much have the same type of chocolate on our top 10 list. One of those chocolate flavours? Reese Peanut Butter Cups. There aren’t too many combos that are more satisfying than chocolate and peanut butter (and a cool glass of milk).
The classic chocolate and peanut butter cups that come in a bright orange package have been satisfying my chocolate addiction for years. When I was asked if I wanted to try their new product, Reese Spread, the chocolate lover inside of me could not refuse and I actually giggled a bit too.
Like I mentioned before, I try to eat healthy but there are times when I cave and chocolate is my default go to snack. I’ll usually grab an entire bar and chow down and then feel guilty. The spread gives an option to satisfy cravings in smaller doses. Like peanut butter it’s 100 calories a tablespoon, so I can spread it on a piece of toast or dip apples into the spread and get my chocolate fix. The spread is creamy yet thick and is a bit chunky as the peanut butter and chocolate are all mixed together. It doesn’t sound like that combo is even possible, but when it’s slathered on a piece of toast, you’ll see what I mean. While It doesn’t taste exactly like the cups but it’s pretty darn close, I think the difference is that the chocolate is smooth rather than the hard chocolate in the “cups”.
There is also a quick ready to grab snack with the new Reese Snack, the sticks are made from graham crackers. My personal opinion is that there are too many flavours going on to really enjoy the spread. Graham crackers should stick to s’mores. My family also agreed that the graham cracker/peanut butter chocolate spread combo wasn’t The best, but it might be something that works for you.
I think I’m mostly excited about making cookies with this new PB and chocolate combo. I was thinking of trying the classic peanut butter cookies (you know the ones that you squish with a fork). But if you’re looking for a way to use this new spread in a recipe, here are a few to get your started https://www.hersheycanada.com/recipes/en-ca/products/spreads/reese-spreads.

**Disclosure: My name is Lynette and I am a chocoholic… this sounds more like an anonymous meeting… In all seriousness, I am a chocolate lover so I may be biased when it comes to chocolate. However it also means that I am well versed in the world of Chocolate. Either way, I did get the product for free and as such this is a sponsored post.
