Kelli sent me a picture the other day…It saw this picture of Georgie. She had been out farming with her dad and came in for a snack.
I asked what she was eating and Kelli said she tried a new recipe.
Reese’s Chocolate Filled Bars…I asked for the recipe and she tried sent this…
I typed it out for you…
2 sticks butter, softened & divided
1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
2 c. brown sugar
2-1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
2-1/2 c. quick oats
2-1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2/3 c. cocoa
1/4 c. sugar
1-14 oz can sweeten condensed milk
1-1/4 c. Reese’s baking cups & candy pieces
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In the bowl of your mixer, mix 1 stick of butter, peanut butter, and brown sugar. Add in the eggs and 1 tsp. of the vanilla. Mix until creamy.
Add in the oats, flour baking soda, and salt. The mixture will be very thick. Remove and reserve approximately 2 cups of the dough.
Press the remaining dough into the sheet pan.
In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the remaining stick of butter.
Add the cocoa and sugar. Add the sweetened condensed milk. Stir until combined, smooth and thick. Stir in the remaining 1-1/2 tsp. of vanilla.
Pour over the bottom layer of dough in the pan, spreading evenly over the dough. Sprinkle with Reese’s baking bits.
Crumble the reserved dough over the baking bits.
Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
Kelli said the Georgie loves them. She also said they are a lot like the Revel Bars I make only with added Reese’s.
A bit later Kelli sent more pictures. She made the pan of bars but a 10 x 15 pan is too big for them to eat themselves. She was packaging up some to take to work and some for Jason’s parents. She had also been busy and made meals for her Jason for the next couple of days as she has to work her overnight shifts.
I ended up messaging her back as I love the containers. I am always sending food home with Karl, my childcare families or my kids. I wanted some of these containers.
Kelli says that she actually reuses them in her own use but it’s not necessary to as they are designed to be disposable. She said she loves taking treats to work or to Jason’s parents in them as it doesn’t matter if she gets them back.
Kelli ended up sending me THIS LINK to the containers.
They end up being about 50 cents each. I didn’t think that was terrible.
Kayla ended up calling me and talking to me shortly after I talked to Kelli and I told her about Kelli’s containers. She said they are great and she uses them all of the time. Her favorite are the round version as she uses them for soup and salads that she take to work. You can find them HERE.
I think I’m going to buy a set of each for myself. I really want to get in the habit of freezing more of my meals. I think these containers will help.
