I don’t remember quite how this idea popped into my mind, but I love all things peanut butter. Like I seriously have a secret obsession with anything peanut butter and as I was going through the baking aisle at Fry’s I saw the most amazing creation ever. Reese’s Peanut Butter Chips!! I knew immediately, as I grabbed 2 bags, that I had to incorporate them into something!!
I think from there everything just kind of evolved as I saw the Oreo’s. But to be honest whenever I go into my “creative/inventive” mode, my left brain seems to completely take over and all I can do is try to get my ideas on paper quick enough before the next one floods in. I’m seriously in love with how these turned out though. Crunchy, gooey, peanut buttery, chocolate heaven. Enjoy!!
