I think we can say it’s pretty common knowledge that chocolate and peanut butter are about the most perfect combination there is. And, my friends, I have to tell you that these Chocolate Fudge Reece’s Cookie Bars are probably the MOST UNBELIEVABLE chocolatey peanut butter dessert I’ve ever made. Seriously. SO GOOD!
So how did this decadent dessert come to be? Well…it was fate really. I was out solo shopping last weekend trying to finish up the last of the Christmas shopping when I decided to pop into Safeway to pick up some ingredients to make treats for my son’s speech therapist and my husband’s coworkers. It was a spur of the moment shopping trip and I hadn’t planned out what I was going to bake so I grabbed whatever looked good in the baking aisle-you know how that goes. I spied some Betty Crocker™ Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix and Hershey® Reese’s Peanut Butter Chips and I just knew I could turn them into something delicious!Print
