Hershey’s Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are usually the very first to disappear from the Trick or Treat stash. However, as soon as the grumbling over empty Reese’s wrappers began, a mad dash for a more tantalizing Reese’s dessert followed. With spooky season gone, Reese’s ushered in another peanut butter rush with their limited number of giant 9-inch diameter peanut butter cups, dubbed Reese’s Thanksgiving Pie.
No doubt, Reese’s was in it to be the showstopper of the Thanksgiving dessert spread. Despite not being your typical apple or pumpkin pie, Reese’s pie certainly pulls out all the stops. With 3.25 pounds of smooth, rich peanut butter cream and Hershey’s chocolate coating, this pie would be a chocolate and peanut butter lover’s dream.
Reese’s senior brand manager Bo Jones said in a press release, “When you bring together friends and family for Thanksgiving dinner, no table spread is complete without dessert. At Reese’s, we wanted to create a dessert that everyone wants a piece of. You can thank us later.”
Nevertheless, this tasty pie was gobbled up long before Thanksgiving Day, as with most Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup treats. It wasn’t surprising, however, since it was a limited-edition product, with only 3,000 Reese’s Pie Cups selling for $44.99 each.
But before you head over to eBay to see if you can snag one of these candy pies for a whopping $400, here are some alternative Reese’s desserts you can prepare this Thanksgiving that are sure to be more tasty than a giant slab of chocolate and peanut butter.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie
While a homemade chocolate peanut butter pie may not be a Reese’s Thanksgiving pie, it elicits all the flavors you love in a more delectable form. In this mouth-watering chocolate peanut butter pie, Reese’s cups top a creamy peanut butter filling and an Oreo cookie crust. With only eight ingredients, this simple no-bake pie is a must-have no-fuss dessert any time of year.
