What’s your favorite dessert? Is it one that a family member makes for your birthday or something you had on a dream vacation.
My Husband’s favorite dessert that I make is Reese’s pie. It is just peanut butter and chocolate and its very good, simple dessert but man he loves it.
Jman has a genetic disorder called Galactosemia which means his body can’t digest Galactose, and lactose or in easy terms any products with dairy or milk in it. So we have to be very careful what products and ingredients we use. I’ve gotten pretty good at reading ingredients and cooking food for him.
However when we go out, it’s a different story, we ask questions of the waiter and make substitutions and do everything in our power to keep Jman safe. We’ve learned some tricks in our relationship. However, one we haven’t found yet is dessert. Most restaurants have desserts that have milk in them and usually, their only dairy-free dessert is a bowl of fruit. And Jman doesn’t even eat fruit that I buy for us to eat, he would never order a bowl of fruit at a fancy restaurant.
Often I make homemade desserts. And this is his favorite, out of all the cookies, cakes and pies I make, this an old dessert that I made when I was young because I wanted peanut butter and chocolate.
Reese Pie/ Bars
4 Cups of Chocolate chips(dairy-free)
2 Cups of smooth peanut butter
2 cups powdered sugar
½ Cup of butter melted(dairy-free)
3 tablespoons of honey
2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
1 Pinch of salt.
Divide the chocolate chips in half. Melt the half chocolate. Add 1 tablespoon of oil and mix until smooth and glossy. Pour chocolate into greased pan and put into the fridge to set. In a large bowl mix peanut butter, powdered sugar, butter, honey, vanilla, and salt until the mixture is smooth and thick. Take the base out of the fridge and spread the peanut butter filling on top. Put back into the fridge to set. Finally, take the other half of chocolate chips and melt. Mix in 1 tablespoon of oil and stir until it smooth and glossy. Pour the chocolate over the peanut butter mixture and put in the fridge to set.
Before serving take out dessert and let come to room temperature. Enjoy 😊
