If you’ve watched the Food Network lately, you’ve probably come across the show, “Rewrapped,” which challenges chefs to create some of our favorite treats: Little Debbie treats, Twinkies, Spaghetti-O’s and Lay’s Potato Chips to name a few. I personally love this show because it demonstrates how you can recreate favorites and actually know what is going into your treat.
My guilty pleasure snack is a good old-fashioned Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. I challenged myself to make my own peanut butter cups with ingredients I had in my pantry. I tried quite a few batches and different layering techniques of the peanut butter and chocolate but finally came out with the perfect balance of 2/3 peanut butter on the bottom and 1/3 chocolate on top. If you prefer more chocolate than peanut butter, feel free to mix it up.
From start to finish these take about an hour to make followed by a night in the freezer. However, they only last about a day before they are devoured!
