Chocolate Peanut Butter Reese’s Puffs Hamantaschen
Servings: about 22 hamantaschen
2 eggs (for vegan dough use 2 tablespoons ground flax seed combined with 6 tablespoons water)
1/2 cup oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoon baking powder
2 1/2 cups flour
1 cup chocolate spread
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup Reese’s Puffs cereal
Cream together eggs, sugar, oil, and vanilla. Slowly add flour and baking powder. Mix together. The dough might be crumbly, use your hands to smooth it out and combine it. Roll out dough on floured surface (about 1/4 to 1/8 thick. Not too thick since then the circles are hard to shape and will open up. Not too thin since then it will rip when shaping or filling) and cut out circles using a donut cutter or the rim of a large glass cup or mason jar. Fill center of circle with 1/2 teaspoon chocolate spread and bake on 350′ for about 10 minutes. Melt chocolate chips in microwave on 30 second intervals. Melt peanut butter in microwave as well, for 30 seconds. Allow hamantaschen to cool off then drizzle melted chocolate chips and peanut butter on top and garnish with cereal.
* Notes on shaping hamantaschen: Place filling in center than slowly fold over the left side. Then the fold over the right side and finally bring the bottom layer on top. Gently pinch the corners together.
