There are flavour and food combinations that resonate with everyone. Milk and chocolate sandwich cookies, bacon and eggs and to me especially Peanut Butter and Chocolate! I remember as a child enjoying a scoop or two of Peanut Butter and Chocolate ice cream from that 31 flavours ice cream shop. ;P
Well now available in Canada is Reese® Spread Peanut Butter Chocolate.
A Food Bloggers of Canada member opportunity has made it possible for me as well as other great Food Bloggers to participate in developing a recipe using this new spread. After much brainstorming, my kids thought that making a cereal treat would be the most fun and would be perfect for a Halloween party snack or lunch box treat.
I made the Reese® Spread Cereal Treats using my son’s favourite cereal General Mills® Reese®Puffs cereal and pressed the mixture into my Chicago Metallic™ Lasagna Trio Pan for long loaf size shape slices and also used a mini muffin tin to form golf ball-sized sphere treats.
