Do you ever feel like you’ve been hit with a Nyquil stick?
As in, your limbs just get heavier. You’re exhausted. You think about people who sleep later in the morning and you feel nothing but intense envy.
It’s the beginning of the school year. I’ll adjust. In the meantime, when I finally drop into bed, I’m sleeping very well. And I’m also rediscovering the joy of candy to keep me going during those conscious hours!
Nothing beats salty and sweet, especially if peanut butter cups are involved. And those adorable Reese’s miniature Oreos. I love miniature Oreos. So tiny! So cute! So pop-into-your-mouth efficient!
These take about ten minutes to make, start to finish. And the only thing you have to do is be patient enough to wait out the cooling period. Because sticking a piping-hot piece of chocolate into your mouth is not a good idea. I am the voice of experience!
If you’re into gift-giving, you can also wrap these up in some kind of adorable way (sorry, I’m not too crafty) and give them to people you like, or to people you’re trying to convince that you like. Either way!
There’s very little time in the day, but you can still be classy and make deliciousness! Get cracking!
- 1 package Reese’s miniature PB cups, unwrapped
- 1 package Reese’s mini Oreos (limited edition)
- 1 bag square pretzels
Preheat the oven to 175 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
Place a peanut butter cup upside-down on top of each pretzel. Place the pretzels in the oven for 2-3 minutes.
Remove the pretzels from the oven and, working quickly, press a mini Reese’s Oreo gently but firmly into the top of the peanut butter cup.
Cool the pretzels until set. These can be stored in an airtight container for up to one week.
