Reese’s Explosion Banana Bread

Reese's {Explosion} Banana Bread from | An explosion of Reese's turns this banana bread into the ultimate treat! #bread #breakfast #Reese's

If you’re a regular here at Mom On Timeout then you know I have a thing for Reese’s.  I do a lot of baking with Reese’s because, let’s face it, Reese’s is much like bacon in that it makes everything taste better.  Awhile back I shared my recipe for Peanut Butter Banana Bread and while it’s an excellent recipe there was just something that seemed to be missing….chocolate!

Reese's Banana Bread

Now I am definitely in the camp that says chocolate is an breakfast food. It’s an excellent way to start your day especially if it comes in the form of Reese’s Banana Bread.  I’m calling this Reese’s Explosion Banana Bread because it contains not one, not two, but THREE different types of Reese’s!  Reese’s Minis, Reese’s Miniatures, and Reese’s Peanut Butter Chips have all joined the party!

Now if you’re like – Whoah Trish! That’s a lot of candy!  You could {although I don’t understand why..} not put the topping on.  I made it for my family once like this and it’s still outrageously good – like – REALLY good :)

  4. Trish, I’ve been meaning to write you a while now and tell you you should be banned from the interwebs until at least March with recipes like this! LOL You’re such a wicked woman, but I LOVE it! LOL Love your recipes.

  8. My son LOVES Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups that I actually bought him a 1/4 pound cup for Christmas! His birthday is coming up so I’m going to incorporate PB cups into the cake somehow. Love your version and wish I could have a piece….or three! :)

  9. Wow! I’ve always loved banana bread, but this looks even better!

  10. All I can say is …yummy!!! We love all Reeses candy so this recipe is a must do very soon :)

  11. Seriously, I’m sad. Because this bread is a mere picture on my screen and I want it in my face hole. :)

  12. This sounds so delicious. I love anything with peanut butter in it so you had me sold the moment you said Reeses.

  13. Wow – this looks amazing!!
    Would love for you to come over and share at my linky party Finding the Pretty & Delicious Linky Party.

  14. Yep. I pretty much love you–this looks awesome. Thanks so much for linking up at What’s In Your Kitchen Wednesday!

  15. This looks so tasty Trish and the orange in them would make this a fab treat around Halloween :D

  16. Oh dear, that looks sinfully delicious!

  17. Mmmm! That looks fantastic! I’m pinning this! :)

  18. Omgoodness, all my favorite things in one delicious recipe! I just made some Valentine’s Chocolate Chip Cookies, but I may have to try this out too! Thanks for sharing the yumminess at the “Sundae Scoop” linky party!

  19. Do I put topping before baking? I am so new so I have no clue when I need to those three topping. If you dont mind could you explain how to put topping too? thanks!!

  20. Oh my…this looks dangerous…but oh soo good! My family would love this!! Thanks so much for sharing!!

  21. Trish, this looks beyond delicious. Now I have somrthing else to do with the banana surplus I usually end up with here in Puerto Rico. However you do not mention what size loaf pan.

  22. Sounds awesome!

  23. I almost drooled when I saw this!! I am so ridiculously excited to make this it’s…well, ridiculous. :)

  24. Michelle says:

    Mackenzie :)

  26. You had me at Reese’s : )
    Thanks for sharing, Trish!


  27. Brenda Ebert says:

    I am a peanut butter chocolate lover too! Can’t wait to try this? I wonder if I could use some of our Reeses peanut butter eggs chopped up in this bread instead of the reeses mini’s?

  28. Hi, Trish. I love baking and cooking, but this just took things way off the chart! I just made this recipe and it’s in the oven, but I’m curious, why do you coat the peanut butter cups and candies with flour before combining?

  29. Heather says:

    I just found this delicious looking recipe! So excited to make it because I have everything on hand. I was wondering though if the second picture used is a different bread? It looks like a chocolate bread because it is a lot darker than all the others. Is there a recipe for that one as well? Also, when does the topping go on? After its baked? Thanks!

  30. Almost all the necessities of life. Peanut butter, chocolate and bananas! Add a good cup of coffee and I’m set for the day!!

  31. I finally made this today after drooling over it for so long. Believe me, it is as good as it looks!! This stuff is evil! No one seems to be able to get enough of it. Thank goodness I don’t have the ingredients to make it again! There’s a bake sale coming up at church to benefit the Hunger Walk. I think I need to make one for that (maybe two just in case one gets accidentally eaten). Thanks Trish!

  32. My husband and I are PB fanatics. He’s had this recipe in his arsenal for quite some time and finally just got around to making it last week. This recipe is AMAZING!! I don’t know if I should love you or curse you. lol He made 3 mini loaves and I killed one by myself in one sitting. I made him whip up a double batch asap(to freeze) because I know how he likes to share and I do not. haha! Thanks again for sharing your killer recipe!

  33. I plan to make this drool worthy bread for my hubby as a surprise, and I’m really excited for it myself, but I was wondering about the topping measurements, it says 1/4 but not a measurement. Can you clarify so I can enjoy this in my home please? I love how it looks. :-)

  34. bridget says:

    If these were made into muffins about how long would you bake them? Any idea? Looks amazing! Thanks for recipe!

  35. Hi there — looks delish! Do you think that the baking time would be the same for mini loaf pans as you posted re turning the recipe into muffins? Many thanks.

  36. Love!
    I have a bag of rollo’s. I wonder if I could use that instead & how it might taste. Carmel & banana…..?
