our family snacks. OMG! Those peanut butter were so addictive that they lead to our Reese's Big Cup
Peanut Butter Lovers Cup Addiction. This past winter was the worse in Chicago's history which held
me captive in the house over indulging on Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. This is the cause for my sugar
roll around my waist plus the extra pounds that I have gained. I don't want to give up Chocolate and
Peanut Butter for life. I would for a Pritikin's Chef to "Pritikinize" this Homemade Reese's Peanut
Butter Cup Recipe. This Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Recipe is from the Food Network website.
|Reese's Big Cups King Size|
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup of powdered sugar
1 (12 - ounce package) Hershey's milk chocolate chips
In a small bowl mix peanut butter, salt and powered sugar until firm. Slowly melt the chocolate chips in
a double boiler, over hot, not boiling water. You may also melt them in a microwave oven set on high
for 2 minutes, stirring halfway through the heating time. Grease the muffin tin cups and spoon until
some chocolate into each cup filling halfway. With a spoon, draw the chocolate up the edges of each
cup until all sides are coated. Cool in a refrigerator until firm. Spread some of the peanut butter onto the
chocolate in each cup, leaving room for the final chocolate layer. Cool the cups again to firm up the
peanut butter. Pour some chocolate onto of each candy and spread it to the edges. Let it sit at room
temperature, or covered in the refrigerator. Turn out of the pan when firm.
I am entering the blogger contest to win a trip to the Prikitin Longevity Center and Spa to celebrate
Pritikin's 35th Anniversary. The Prikitin Longevity Center and Spa is located in Miami, Florida on a
650 acre tropical paradise resort which boasts a full service spa and a championship golf course. I had
the pleasure of visiting the resort during my daughter's wedding. I would revel in the opportunity to
participate in a weekend of interactive cooking and nutrition courses and attend personalized fun
fitness classes to start me on my wellness journey back to a healthy lifestyle and weightloss.
Pritikin Longevity Center and Spa have help over 100,000 guests during the past 35 years to prevent
and reverse health challenges such as: excess weight, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, high
cholesterol and cancer risk factors. Pritikin's offers one and two week individualized lifestyle change
programs which focus on daily exercise and an eating plan based on natural whole foods like fruits and
vegetables, whole grains, seafood and limited lean meat.
Pritikin Longevity Center and Spa is different from other health resorts for two reasons: its
scientifically documented results and its education program that teaches guests how to sustain these

As a flight attendant for a regional carrier, I dine out often while flying around in North American
during four day trips. Many times I eat unhealthy meals, so I would really benefit from the Pritikin's
classes on Dining Out, Label Reading and Calorie Density plus activities such as cooking school,
yoga, Zumba and Tai Chi. I have a dancer's body and love Zumba. Yoga and Tai Chi are two exercise
that I would love to learn to incorporate into my lifestyle. All classes are taught by Pritikin's Faculty
who are leaders in their fields of medicine, nutrition, psychology and exercise. Pritikin's outings to
supermarkets and restaurants teach Pritikin's guests how to live the Pritikin's lifestyle in the real world.
