Reese’s Pieces Crispy Squares… these crunchy, peanut buttery bars of delight are perfect for making with the kids over the school holidays! It’s no secret I love a no bake treat and they’re always handy in the heat of summer when you don’t want to put your oven on. So what are you waiting for?
Here is what you will need to make 15 square.
(Recipe adapted from Little Dairy on the Prairie)
- 215g White Marshmallows
- 30g Unsalted Butter, room temp
- 100g Smooth Peanut Butter
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 200g Coco Pops
- 200g Reese’s Pieces
- 50g Milk Chocolate (To Drizzle, Optional)
- 30 x 20cm (12 x 8″) Rectangular Baking Tin
Reese’s Pieces Crispy Squares Recipe
Lightly grease and line your tin with baking paper.
Put the marshmallows and the butter into a large bowl and heat in the microwave for 50-60 seconds.
Give it a really good stir until nice & melted.
Mix through the peanut butter and the vanilla.
Add the coco pops to the bowl and give it some elbow grease! Mix until everything is well coated.
Tip the mixture into the prepared tin and press in firmly. If you get a bit too sticky, oil up your knuckles or the back of a spoon. That should make it a bit easier!
Tip over all the Reese’s Pieces and press them in to make sure they stick.
Pop into the fridge to set for a couple of hours (or overnight) until firm.
Then slice into 15 square bars – a 3 x 5 grid. Store in an airtight container in the fridge and consume within 5 days.
If you want you can drizzle them in a little chocolate. Break 50g into a disposable piping bag and melt in the microwave in 10 second intervals. Give it a good old squish between each blast. When it’s melted, snip the end & drizzle over each bar. Allow to set then store as above.
How much do you want one of these Reese’s Pieces Crispy Squares eh? They’re a little bit tastier than those boring old marshmallow crispy squares aren’t they?! Even if you or the kids don’t like peanut butter, you can always replace the peanut butter with Nutella and change the Reese’s Pieces for smarties. Or any other chocolate candy you like for that matter!
I hope you enjoyed the post my lovelies, until next time.
