Peanut Butter Chocolate Dessert Ravioli


This post is sponsored by REESE Canada

You guys, I have great news!  Not only does REESE now make a spread that tastes exactly like a spreadable Reese's peanut butter cup (seriously, this is a thing!), it's now available in Canada!

If you're looking for a sweet, salty, decadent treat, then this spread is definitely for you.  Incredible on it's own, accompanied by your favourite cracker, pretzel, or cookie, (or really, just licked off of a spoon) this spread is downright dangerous to have in the kitchen.  So dangerous in fact, it should be hidden, so you don't accidentally eat it all in one day - it's really that good.



It also makes for the perfect filling and topping for the dessert ravioli I've had dancing around in my head for quite some time now - a product that serves two completely separate purposes in one recipe?  I think I'm in love!


Before we get to the actually recipe however (trust me, it's worth the wait) I have a bit of a funny story to tell you all today.

You see, the hashtag associated with this campaign is #DoYouSpoon.  Literally as soon as this campaign started appearing my friends started sharing it on social media and tagging me in it.  Why do you ask?   It all started 4 years ago, when I was interviewing for a contract.

The woman who was hiring me texted me to ask "what time can you come in today?" and I replied "I can be there soon if you like".  At least that's what I meant to text.  What actually sent was "I will be there to spoon if you like".  Cue the most embarrassing moment of my life.  After what seemed like an excruciating amount of time, but was only a few seconds, my potential new boss texted back "as long as I get to be the little spoon".  I knew right then and there we would get along just fine. How right I was, because 4 years later, I consider her amongst my very best friends!  Spooning has always been an inside joke between us, and needless to say this campaign rejuvenated it big time!  You can image how ecstatic I was when an opportunity to be a part of this campaign came my way!

Anyways, now that I've told you the most embarrassing moment of my life, I bring you back to the recipe:

Recipe makes 12 individual raviolis

Ingredients
- 1 recipe for pie crust (here's my Gramma's recipe!)
- 3/4 cup REESE's Peanut Butter Chocolate Spread, divided
- 1/2 cup cream cheese, softened
- 1 egg
- flour, for sprinkling
Directions

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. 

Roll out pie crust and cut into 1.5 inch squares. 

In a separate bowl, mix together cream cheese, and 1/2 cup REESE Spread.   Put 1-2 tsp into the centre of 1/2 the squares, then brush the remaining 1/2 of the squares with whisked egg (this will act as an essential glue to seal your ravioli together). 

Place an egg washed square over a filled square, pressing down lightly to seal the pieces together.

  Using a fork, crimp the outer edges of the ravioli (alternatively, you can use a ravioli stamp if you have one).
 

Place ravioli on a parchment lined baking sheet and brush the tops lightly with the remaining egg wash.  Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the tops of the ravioli are golden brown. 

Spoon remaining (about 1/4 cup) REESE spread into a small sandwich baggie and cut off the tip.  Warm between hands, then drizzle on top of cooled ravioli pieces.

  1. Ha ha Spoon... Love it! I'd eat the heck out of these. In fact, I was just at Walmart today, and I had a jar of Reeses in my hands, and my son tells me to put it back. LOL. I'm a diabetic, and my 8 year old son knows that I would get up to no good with that stuff. That said, love this recipe! Maybe I can convince my boy that getting the reeses is okay after all...
