March is one of my favorite months of the year - between St. Patricks Day and College Basketball, I feel as if there is always a reason to celebrate. While in Walmart the other day, I noticed a display from REESE'S for their #SnackTalk Challenge. REESE'S wants to nationally recognize your best gameday recipe! The winner will be recognized on www.reesessnacktalk.com, CBS and walmart.com!
Box of brownie mix (prepare according to box, using cake-like recipe)
12 REESE'S Peanut Butter Cups
12 Jumbo Cupcake liners
Place 1 tablespoon of the brownie mix in each liner, then place a peanut butter cup on each. Top the peanut butter cup with another tablespoon of brownie mix, or until covered. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Let cool for an hour.
Peanut Butter Frosting
1/2 cup room temperature butter
1 cup smooth peanut butter
2 cups powdered sugar
3 (or more if needed) tablespoons milk
In a stand mixer, beat the butter and peanut butter until smooth. Gradually add the sugar. Add milk as needed to make into a smooth frosting.
Decorate each like a basketball. I attempted to use food coloring to turn my frosting orange - but it didn't work and after 4 tires, I was happy with standard peanut butter coloring! As mentioned above, I smoothed the frosting using a cake icing knife, then drew the basketball lines on them with gel coloring.
