Truth, I like peanut butter on a burger. So when I was given the opportunity to try some Reese Peanut Butter and Chocolate Spread from Hershey’s Canada this is where I ended up.
Yes, I originally thought of baking something, wouldn’t this stuff be great on S’mores? Yes it would! However, I thought it might be fun to try something a little different.
The jars came to my door and we were curious to try it so my hubby and I did immediately. It took all our will power not to eat it out of the jar that night. This stuff tastes good on just about anything, like toasted bagels, with apples and yes, even by itself out of the jar with a spoon.
But, I wanted to try it on a burger.
I had a lot of ideas floating around in my brain but ultimately I decided to keep it simple, just the Reese Peanut Butter and Chocolate spread and some jam. I decided to make a stuffed burger but really, if you don’t have time you could easily just spread the Peanut Butter and Chocolate with the jam right on top of any old burger. But if you do it this way, all that ooey gooey goodness will melt right into the hamburger and just make your mouth really happy. Pair it with a glass of milk and you will be transported back to childhood PB & J sandwiches.
My husband and I loved this burger and I will make it again but I am convinced you can make this same burger and top it with bacon and cheese. Or you could even make a Mexican burger with the Reese Peanut Butter and Chocolate spread acting as a mole sauce.
Do I spoon? Of course I do but it sure is fun to experiment as the possibilities are endless and I can’t wait to discover more.
