Reese Spreads Now in Canada! #DoYouSpoon {giveaway}

If there's a favourite treat that's enjoyed equally by all my boys, big and small, I'd have to say it's Reese Peanut Butter Cups. I have been known to suggest, since they come in a pack of three, they could share (perfectly portioned!), but they always each demand their own full package. What can you do?

Needless to say, the arrival of Reese Spreads in Canada was kind of a big deal around here. Boo's new favourite snack is a Reese Peanut Butter Cup Sandwich. White bread and Reese Spreads for the win!! It really does taste just like the peanut butter cups, with a smooth, spreadable texture, and you can use it in so many ways. Try it on waffles with sliced banana for a yummy brunch, dip some apple slices or pretzels, spread it on a cracker, or incorporate it in recipes, like the one I'll share below. Personally, I do spoon it. A big spoon of this spread has made a great fix for my hormonal chocolate cravings, I have to say.

Needless to say, Reese Spreads are for desserts, snacks and treats, not the basis of meals. A serving size of 2 Tablespoons has 190 calories and 19 grams of sugar. But it also has 3 grams of protein and 1 gram of fibre, no trans fats and only 2 grams of saturated fat. And it tastes yummy. Everything in moderation, right?

For a grab and go option you can choose the Reese Snacksters. Each package is divided down the middle with a portion of Reese Spreads on one side and a set of graham cracker dipping sticks on the other. If you run out of the dipping sticks, remember, you can always use your finger :)

Try This Recipe

This recipe is from the Hershey's Kitchens website, where you can find many more ideas for incorporating Reese Spread into your cooking and baking. I think I need to try this Peanut Butter Chocolate and Bacon Appetizer recipe too.

Peanut Butter S’mores Pie

Skill Level: Beginner
Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Bake Time: 8 to 10 Minutes
Yield: 8 to 10 servings

1 1/3 cups (325 mL) graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup (60 mL) granulated sugar
6 tbsp (90 mL) melted butter
30 regular-size marshmallows

2 cups (500 mL) Hershey’s Semi-Sweet Chipits
3/4 cup (175 mL) 35% whipping cream
1 cup (250 mL) REESE Spreads Peanut Butter Chocolate

1. Mix graham cracker crumbs with sugar; pour butter over top and stir to moisten. Press into 9-inch (23 cm) pie plate. Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven for 8 to 10 minutes until golden and firm; let cool completely.
2. Filling: Place Chipits in heatproof bowl. In saucepan, heat cream until steaming and small bubbles form around inside edge of pan. Pour over chocolate chips; let stand for 5 minutes. Mix until smooth.
3. Stir peanut butter chocolate spread into chocolate mixture; mix until smooth. Scrape into crust, smoothing top. Refrigerate for 15 to 20 minutes or until just slightly firm.
4. Arrange marshmallows in concentric circles over top. Refrigerate for about 4 hours or until filling is firm (or make ahead and refrigerate overnight).
5. Broil for 1 minute or until marshmallows are golden.

Tip: To save time, use a prepared graham cracker wafer crust.
