My Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Taste-alike Traybake!

my reeces peanut butter taste alikes

There's two traybakes that I make on a regular basis, my Reese's Peanut Butter Taste-alike one and one we call Diabetes slice. This one is my particular favourite because I am American sweetie daft. Luckily, they are easier to get hold of now than ever before in the UK, but they are expensive. If you too have a passion for those salty sweet treats then, you will go daft for this recipe.

For the yummy peanuty centre:

  • 400g icing sugar
  • 400g smooth peanut butter
  • 100g unsalted butter
  • 100g fine brown sugar

For the sweet chocolatey top:

  • 400g of milk chocolate ( I prefer Galaxy, but it's up to you)
  • One tablespoon of butter

This is so very easy to make. bung all of your peanut butter filling ingredients in a bowl and mix together. You will eventually have it into a smooth paste. Have a cheeky taste.....heaven or what?

Line two baking trays with greaseproof paper and pat down your peanuty mix into the bottom of each tray. I like to then stick mine into the fridge for 15 minutes, but you don't have to.

Melt your chocolate, I use the glass bowl over the pan of water technique as I use cheap chocolate and it burns very easily in the microwave. Don't forget to melt your butter into this too. Once melted, smear across the tops of your filling.

This is the hardest part of the whole recipe, put them straight into the fridge to cool down and set. I like to score mine when it's semi-set so it's easy to cut into squares. This recipe can be halved to make one tray, but I always make the two because it is ADDICTIVE!

Trust me it's yummy! Not suitable for those with nut allergies though as it contains lots of nuts. Psst....don't give it to children either as it is far too good for them!
