Reese's with Marshmallow Tops - Reese's Peanut Butter Cups Mallow-top

Another new Reese's flavor! I remember a couple years ago Reese's made a chocolate lovers and peanut butter lovers version of their Reese's cup. Now they're catering to marshmallow lovers, not by putting marshmallow inside, but by making a marshmallow flavored top to their regular Reese's Peanut Butter cup. This has a marshmallow flavored creme layer. 

But what can we compare it with? I'm always trying to taste these treats along with something else. 

You can see the white layer on top of the chocolate layer. I don't see "white chocolate" on the ingredient list, so this must be more of a candy confection topping.  

So kids, how can we make something similar to this? We grabbed a few Reese's Miniatures and a bag of mini marshmallows. 

They used either scissors or tore them in half and topped the Reese's cups. 

Where do all those marshmallows I laid out keep disappearing to? 

They got a kick out of sneaking marshmallows. 

After we did our regular photo for the intro, they wanted to take a silly photo too. Time to taste them!

First are the official marshmallow Reeses. 

Ian - Good stuff. They're weird, but good. 
Theresa - Definitely weird. But they are not good. 

Alli likes them. 
I also thought they were weird. I would not call the creme layer marshmallow flavored. Marshmallows taste a bit like vanilla to me, but these have some weird other flavor. I can't place it. 

Our homemade Reeses marshmallow cups were next. 

They were alright, but I'm not so sure they are a combination that needs to go together. 


  1. "Weird, but good"...funny description Ian :-) Guess we better stick with eating the marshmallows separate from the original Reese's cups (I thought the homemade Reese's marshmallow cups would be a treat...guess I was wrong!) Alli has quite the expression on that "sneaking marshmallows" photo...cute! EOM

    1. It's always interesting to see how it will taste when it's artificially flavored versus being flavored by the real thing. Something just gets lost in translation a lot of the time.
