Chocolate Friday - Reese's history






In the early 1920s Harry Burnet Reese worked in one of the dairies owned by Milton Hershey. Inspired by Hershey's success, he decided "if Hershey can sell a trainload of chocolate everry day, I can at least make a living making candy." Reese struck out on his own and by the mid-1920s had an entire line of candies, including dinner mints, dipped chocolates, caramels, and coconut candies. In 1928 he added peanut butter cups; they were so popular that when World War II rationing put a dent in his business in 1942, he dumped the rest of his product line and focused exclusively on them. Today Reese's Peanut Butter Cups are part of Hershey Foods.

We love to make cookies with Reese's Peanut Butter Chips.

1 cup brown sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
3 cups self-rising flour
1 package Reese's PB Chips

Cream together the sugar and butter. Add in eggs and vanilla. Then mix in the flour and last of all the PB chips. Bake at 350 degrees for about 10-12 minutes. Cool slightly on a wire rack until they are ready to eat. We like to eat them still warm from the oven (but not hot). They are best eaten with a glass of ice-cold milk. Yum!!

For more yummy chocolate recipes, go visit Lisa at Stop and Smell the Chocolates.

added later: I just realized that my recipe doesn't have chocolate in it. Add in your favorite chocolate chips to make it chocolate-y. Double yum!!


Until next time...
