The Reese’s Peanut Butter Egg.
It’s an Easter tradition here in America.
Unfortunately, just looking at the ingredients in these babies gives me a tummy ache:
Peanuts, sugar*, dextrose, vegetable oil (cocoa butter, palm, shea, sunflower and/or safflower oil), chocolate, nonfat milk, contains 2% or less of milk fat, lactose, salt, whey, partially hydrogenated vegetable oil, corn syrup*, soy lecithin*, cornstarch*, glycerin, TBHQ & PGPR**, vanillin.
**PGPR stands for Polyglycerol Polyricinoleate and is a chemical used to replace the expensive cocoa butter that is normally found in chocolate. TBHQ stands for Tertiary Butylhydroquinone and comes from petroleum and is related to butane (often used as a preservative).
Really, there’s no need for all that junk.
I came up with a Copycat Reese’s Peanut Butter Egg recipe that will knock. your. socks off! And with only 6 ingredients (ones that you’ll actually recognize, too), your tummy will thank you.
Pin it for later!
