So firstly my apologies for anyone trying to stick to a healthy diet. Look away now if you are! Whilst shopping today I came across Reeces Peanut Butter Chips - see below (right next to the choc chips) . I wasn't looking for them, they found me and demanded I take them home. What's a girl to do? No one in my house is a fan of peanut butter except me so I rarely make any of those gorgeous looking desserts because I know they will either end up in the bin or in my stomach - both options are not good. So I was super excited to come across these because I can sprinkle them on top of a few muffins without offending the rest of the family.
My high school best friend, Natalie and I must have eaten our body weight in Reeces Peanut Butter Cups growing up so this recipe is definitely dedicated to her. Love you Natty xx
