Hello there, party people. I have a recipe for you today that is going to rock your little chocolate peanut butter loving world. And if you’re not a chocolate peanut butter fan, then you can quietly and shamefully click the red “x” up in the corner, because you are totally not welcome here today. (Kidding! You’re always welcome. You smell lovely and your hair is so shiny. Let’s be friends!)
Anyway, let’s talk about seven layer bars. Have you ever tried these thangs? I’m somewhat new to them, because I don’t like coconut and the original seven layer bar has coconut and *barf.* Right?
So, I went ahead and changed things around to be outrageoulsy gooey, chocolatey, and peanut butter-y. You guys are going to lose your minds over this.
First up, we have a layer of chocolate graham crackers, followed by a layer of pretzels, a layer of chocolate chips, a layer of peanut butter chips, a layer of mini Reese’s cups, and then a layer of sweetened condensed nectar of the gods…I mean milk…and all of that gets topped off with some Reese’s Pieces.
Whew. I’m out of breath just typing all of that.
Can you even imagine what your mouth is going to say when you shove 18 of these bars in there? It’s going to punch you in the elbow. Or…something?
This dangerous little recipe is brought to you as part of a Reese’s Baking Bracket Challenge, a Reese’s and Walmart promotion to help make game day more fun! (What game day, you may say if you are not a basketball person. College basketball game day, my friends. That’s what we be talkin’ ’bout.)
There are a total of 32 recipes in the bracket that you can find at REESE’S® Baking Bracket Challenge. Fans who vote for a recipe (preferably MY recipe, guys…have some dang loyalty, would ya? Or whatever.) will be entered for a chance to win a daily prize of a $100 Walmart gift card. I dunno about you, but I could buy a lot of things at Walmart for $100!
College basketball games are the perfect time to get together with friends and family, huddle around a bag of REESE’S® Peanut Butter Cups, and talk about how cute the boys look in their little outfits. Wait, no. I mean, watch the game. Go…Tigers? Monkeys? Pandas? Right. So, anyway, gather up yo’ people and host a delicious party full of Reese’s and other affordable treats available at Walmart with their everyday low prices.
