Reeses Gift Baskets: 3 Creative ‘DIY' Ways To Indulge

Our Reeses Gift Baskets, or Reeses candy bouquets as we often sell them, are one of our customer favorites, and know why – Reeses are absolutely, divinely, delicious! Sinking your teeth into a Reeses is indulging in a little slice of peanut butter and chocolate heaven. We can’t get enough of them, so we created gift baskets and candy bouquets featuring them. We know the great people in your life will love receiving them, and we have many customers who consider Reeses Gift Baskets their “go-to” gift for birthdays, celebrations, graduations, etc. Yet, there’s so many different ways to enjoy a Reeses, and we have some creative ways to take that Reeses Gift Basket and put it in an even more delicious form ;-)

Reeses Gift Baskets DIY Idea: Reeses Brownies

There’s a big difference from choosing a box of peanut butter brownie mix, and putting actual Reeses into your brownies. This recipe is super simple, and all you need to do is simply crush up about 12 ounces of Reeses from your Reeses Gift Baskets. Then, choose one box of brownie mix and all the ingredients listed on the box. As you mix your brownie batter, work in ¾ of the Reeses into the batter. Bake according to the directions on the box, and five minutes before the end of the baking time, sprinkle the remaining crushed Reeses on top of the brownies. Then, allow the brownies to fully bake. Enjoy!

Reeses Gift Baskets DIY Idea: Reeses Peanut Butter Pie

Oh, is this a delight! Instead of just eating the Reeses from your Reeses Gift Basket, work them into an even more delicious goodie: Reeses Peanut Butter Pie. Choose your favorite peanut butter pie recipe, and once made, coat the outside with peanut butter icing. Then, cut Reeses peanut butter cups in half, and press them into the top of the pie all around the edge. Save a few slices for us!

Reeses Gift Baskets DIY Idea: Reeses Peanut Butter Banana Bread         

It’s our thinking here at Bisket Baskets that indulgences, like Reeses Gift Baskets, are just fine, as long as we accompany them with healthy choices. We coupled our favorite banana bread recipe with crushed up Reeses cups and a ½ cup of peanut butter in the batter. We absolutely loved the taste, and the bananas provided us with a healthy dose of potassium.

Want to eat our Reeses Gift Baskets the normal way? Fine by us! But if you’ve got a creative craving and want to whip a dish that incorporates your delicious Reeses Gift Baskets in a fun way, try out the above ideas. Your taste buds will love you!
