We finally got around to working on our garden this past weekend. Things have been so busy around here between swim team, school, vacations and traveling, it’s a small miracle that I actually got plants in the ground. But man does it feel good!
I’ve got to be honest with you guys today, I have been in a serious blogging rut the past few months. I think I really burned myself out during the holidays and the break that I normally take in January has somehow extended into April. Sure, I’ve been posting here and there but I just haven’t been as “into” it as I normally am. I’ve decided that I’m just going to jump back into my regular posting schedule and see if that doesn’t help things.
The funny thing is I have still been making and photographing recipes, it’s just when it comes to sharing them…I’m slacking. Big time.
And if all else fails, I may just start posting Reese’s recipes exclusively because those always make me happy 🙂 The other day I realized it had been ages since I had posted a Reese’s recipe…I’m sorry. I know you all love Reese’s as much as I do, right? This recipe is kinda perfect for us busy moms and is a definite kid-pleaser as well.
This recipe couldn’t be simpler. It starts out with a box of brownie mix to really cut back on time. If you prefer, feel free to substitute your favorite homemade brownies in place of the mix. No biggie. The brownies are topped with a layer of gooey marshmallow creme, Reese’s miniatures, and then the most amazing peanut butter-chocolate crispy rice topping.
I don’t know about you, but a recipe with this much chocolate and peanut butter pretty much REQUIRES a cold glass of milk – so don’t forget that!

I used my trusty Hershey’s one-bowl brownie recipe, which is nearly as quick as a box mix. Also used regular-sized Reese’s PB cups, cut in quarters. Took to a family reunion. They traveled well and were loved by all! GREAT RECIPE!

Andi @ The Weary Chef says
My kids will flip over these bars! YUMMY!!
Lynn Reiman says
They all sound terrific.
I feel the same way and have been in the same rut. It’s the writing and editing for me too. Thee brownie bars are just the motivation I need! They look amazing!
Cathy Trochelman says
Oh, the rut. It’s real! And then you go and whip out these bad boys….and you’re set for the month! 😉
Heather Schmitt-Gonzalez says
Oh yeah, I know those ruts well. Comes with the territory, I think. But I’m glad that you decided to post these – they look insane!
Dorothy at Shockingly Delicious says
These will be showing up at all the best summer parties!
Michelle @ The Complete Savorist says
Maybe you need a vacation to get out of your rut sometimes that helps me. Just a little weekend one. Anyway, I love peanut butter with chocolate these look great.
Lora @savoringitaly says
I know what you mean about a rut! I think that maybe trying to the posting schedule will help and it sometimes just takes a little longer to get back into it again. I’m totally into these brownie bars!!
Meg @ With Salt and Wit says
I think this will make everyone happy! I know it will me too!
Julie Evink says
Ahhh the rut. I have a few posts that I NEED to write and I keep pushing it off as long as humanly possible. Instead you’ll find me with a pan of these babies! Hello Reese’s!
I think we all get into those ruts. Blogging food requires a lot of creativity, and sometimes I personally don’t want to think or invent stuff. I just wanna nap. Or I make something, but the effort of editing pics just doesn’t seem appealing. So you’re not alone, Trish! In that, or in love of Reese’s. It’s a definite motivator in my book. These look amazing!
Anything with Reese’s is good in my book! These look incredible! I’ll go get the milk.
Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust says
Reese’s always makes me happy too! These are INSANE in the most amazing way!
