Elvis Bread

When The Kid was in college, I sent her care packages once or twice a month. Sometimes they would be full of shampoo, toothpaste, or make up….. or full of Hamburger Helper, chips, candy or homemade goodies. I didn’t really choose what to send her…sales and coupons did. Yup, sales and coupons did. Whatever went on sale and if I had a coupon for it at the same time…I bought it and into the mail it went. I actually think she enjoyed it because she never knew WHAT was going to be in an “LB Box”.

Well, I had some Reese’s Mini Cups left over that never got mailed. HA! Can’t let these suckers go to waste!!! As Rambob and I are not big candy bar eaters, I’ve collected recipes over the years that uses up….well, leftover candy. After digging through old recipes, I found one that uses Reese’s Cups. This untitled recipe was scribbled on a scrap piece of paper…so that means I probably stole it from a magazine in the doctors office, or a friends cookbook, or just….God only knows where I stole it from. So if this is your recipe, I apologize for stealing it and not giving you credit. At the end of the day and however it came to be in my hands, I made it and named it……

It’s ok to have lumpy batter, you don’t want to over stir or it’ll be tough bread.

Stir in (1) 8oz bag of Reeses’s Mini Cups. I cut my mini cups into chunks but do what floats your boat.

Pour into your greased pan and stick it in your pre-heated oven for 1 hour.

I started checking mine at about 45 minutes in. I DO NOT like overcooked bread. Ya’ll hear me? Check it early because we DO NOT like over cooked bread. Ok? Ok. So once your toothpick comes out clean, let it cool in its pan for about 10 minutes.

Then loosen the edges and flip it onto a wire rack to cool the rest of the way.
