Today’s treat pays homage to the best candy ever created – the Reese’s egg. I know Reese’s rolls out stuff for all the holidays – halloween,Christmas, valentine’s day, but the Reese’s egg stands out for some reason. Not sure why. With all the social distancing and staying home and limiting time outside the home, I bring you a recipe that brings the Reese’s eggs to you. And in a pie., with an Oreo crust. And melted chocolate on top. If you don’t have the Oreos, you can use a Graham cracker crust, or just make the peanut eggs. I was actually going to do a video for this recipe, but with all the hair salons closed, I am 3 weeks overdue for my hair appt with a while to go before my next appt. The only time i ever cut my hair was when I was 4 and it did not go well. so I will patiently wait my next appointment with Lori… Thus today is merely a blog. 😄
- 40 Oreos, any flavor, finely crushed (I used double stuff)
- 8 tbs butter, melted
- 2 cups peanut butter
- 8 tbs butter, softened
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips, melted in 20 second increments in microwave until you can stir this smooth.
Directions – finely crush Oreos with a rolling pin or in a food processor.
Combine with melted butter. Press into a pie pan and freeze ten minutes.
Remove from freezer and top with half of melted chocolate. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, microwave peanut butter and brown sugar for 45 seconds. Blend in butter and powdered sugar. Spread over top of melted layer.
Top with remaining melted chocolate and chill.
