I was looking for a Reese’s recipe to make for my boyfriend’s birthday since it’s his favorite candy. In my search I came across this wonderful recipe on Carrian’s blog, “Sweet Basil“. They are melt-in-your-mouth good and have become my go-to for pot luck events. Although the original recipe called for milk chocolate chips, I substituted Nestle Tollhouse Dark Chocolate Morsels instead and the combination of dark chocolate, peanut butter, and milk chocolate was amazing.
3/4 Cup Unsalted Butter, Melted
1/2 Cup White Sugar
1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Cup All Purpose Flour
1 Cup Quick Oats
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 1/4 Cup Tollhouse Dark Chocolate Morsels
1 1/2 Cup Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Chopped
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees with the rack in the middle position. Grease an 8×8″ baking dish.
In a medium mixing bowl combine the butter, sugars, salt, flour, oats and baking soda. Mix well until all ingredients are combined and slightly moistened.
Press half of the crumb mixture into the baking dish. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the crumb mixture is beginning to get browned. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the chocolate chips and then the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Sprinkle with the remaining crumb mixture and place back in the oven for another 15-18 minutes.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool before slicing in order for the bars to hold together. Enjoy!
