Yay! It's Halloween Time.
Let me just begin this post by sharing with you a hilariously awkward photo from my preteen years . . .
God I love Halloween.
If you haven't already guessed, I'm the one absolutely loving life in the inflatable toucan costume.
One thing about trick-or-treating is that at the end of the night we'd always barter off our candy loot with each other so that we'd end up with a pile of our favorites.
"Trade ya a pack of Skittles and a KitKat for that king size Twix"
Now Reeses have always been a top contender in our pyramid of candy favorites.
Conveniently, they are also one of the easiest candies to make from scratch. Hence, why I'm sharing them with you today.
The first version is the super simple classic (just pb and chocolate) and in the second version we create a simple coconut ganache to go with the pb, just gourmet-ifying it a little bit.
The second version is actually from The Lazy Cat Kitchen's Chilli Chocolate Raspberry Cups recipe, which is absolutely delicious! I just swapped out a few ingredients 'cause we're peanut butter lovers up in here.
I hope you find these recipes as friggin' delicious as I did!
Leave a comment below with your favorite type of Halloween candy. If I get enough comments I'll attempt to create a simplified version of the favorite!
As always, let me know how your baking goes and if there are any recipes you want simplified and loaded up on Just Give Me a Cookie!
