IMG_3122March Madness 2016 is pure insanity. Every underdog is winning and everyone’s brackets are completely messed up. I’ll be honest – I don’t watch college basketball during the regular season, but that’s why the tournament is so fun because you never know what’s going to happen. And that’s exactly what happened during this year’s NCAA Tournament. Everyone thought certain teams would win their one game needed to advance, but nope, there have been lots of underdogs and upsets.

But we’re in the home stretch. The final four play their games on Saturday and the NCAA championship game is on Monday, April 4. That being said, it’s the most perfect time to bring out the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup dip.

Peanut butter and chocolate is a fantastic combination, and yes, there are peanut butter and chocolate dip recipes, but this recipe actually includes Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. That’s not all (but wait, there’s more)… the dip will be topped with orange and brown Reese’s Pieces to make it look like a basketball.

Since PLB is dedicated to “mini desserts,” this dip is kind of out of the ordinary. But we’ll be using the Reese’s Peanut Butter cups miniatures, not to confuse these with the unwrapped minis. The miniatures are the peanut butter cups that are about the size of a quarter.

Not only will we be using Reese’s, but we’ll be adding cream cheese, powdered sugar, milk, and a little extra creamy peanut butter to bind it all together. Basically it’s like we’re eating one large Reese’s PB cup! 

Game or no game, this dip is something you’ll truly enjoy. I’ll probably make it for our next wine tasting adventure (but instead of placing the Reese’s Pieces on top, I’ll mix them in with the dip, YUM). Bring on the pretzels and the Reese’s Peanut Butter dip and I’M SOLD!!!
