Now that Halloweekend is well behind us, costumes, the parties and the decorations are gone, but you’ll likely have some candy leftovers well after the 31st.
Instead of keeping the bowl of candy and slowly grazing on it until New Year’s, try turning these tasty treats into a delicious dessert.
“How do You eat a Reese’s?” and directly after ” There’s no wrong way….to eat a Reese’s” – does anyone else remember those commercials? They make me think of saturday morning cartoons. the BEST day of the week! And these commercials bring up interesting questions of how different people eat certain foods.
So how do You eat your Reese’s peanut butter cup ? Two bites ? Poke out the middle ? I would like to hear from you, don’t hesitate to comment.
Before I go any further, I’m going to answer how I eat a Reese’s.
I rip open the package then slowly take them out, eat around the edges and save the middle. I usually only have two at a time, but if you have more, the better :)
Then I take the middle pieces and put peanut butter between them, stack ‘em up and enjoy !
