There’s nothing more beautiful than discovering a new flavor combination that pairs congruously together — and then eating it as much as possible in new and different formats.
We couldn’t get enough of peanut butter and jelly when we were younger; we ate it slathered on toast, picked up every single PB&J cookie we could find, baked them into various treats, like these No-Bake Peanut Butter Jelly Bars by one of One Green Planet’s bloggers, Kat Condon, and more.
Now that we’re older, our peanut butter obsession has evolved, and we’ve discovered a deep and infinite love for peanut butter and chocolate. For many Americans, Reese’s represents the ultimate flavor fusion of the two massively popular ingredients.
For those of you trying to eat more plant-based foods, hearing about new products sometimes feels discouraging; everyone likes to be included. Considering that most Americans want to buy products from socially conscious brands and that 36 percent of Americans prefer plant-based alternatives to milk, it is clear that soon, plant-based alternatives will begin popping up more commonly in the marketplace.
Until then, you still don’t have to worry about missing out: we have searched through our Food Monster App and found some incredible peanut butter and chocolate recipes that will satisfy your Reese’s craving. The best part? You can share these with your friends, so everyone can participate.
