Coca-Cola Lime Beef & A Big Game Party

Are you ready for the big game? We’re getting ready to throw a party here and I decided to spice things up a bit. I created a recipe for Coca-Cola Lime Beef, that when served in a bakery hoagie bun slightly resembles a football. I used a recipe similar to a homemade sloppy joe base, but I spiced it up with Coca-Cola and a dash of lime. They’re best served in a bakery style hoagie bun that’s sliced down the middle. I’m also showing you how easy it is to quickly throw together a great party tablescape. We don’t have a favorite team in this game; I decided to remain neutral and use a black and white referee color scheme. Our local Target had some exclusive limited time REESE’S Footballs that help make a few other dishes festive and added a touch of sweetness to the table.

We are a REESE’S loving family. It’s definitely my son’s candy of choice. When I was working on this recipe, he was stealing them off the countertop. I’m pretty sure he has a stash of REESE’S Miniatures now, or most likely a pile of wrappers, hidden somewhere. Several months ago I created this recipe for REESE’S Peanut Butter Mousse. Shortly after I created that recipe, I realized it would be great filling for a cake or even a pie. I hadn’t been able to get that idea out of my head, and when I heard about the REESE’S Snack Talk Challenge it inspired me to make my recipe a reality with this REESE’S Torte.

Influenster sent me a VoxBox with Reese’s Peanut Butter Spread in it. Gabe loves just about all forms of nut butters and spreads, and his favorite chocolate snack is probably a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. I saw recipes on Pinterest for a chocolate nut spread type mousse. I decided that I wanted to create a similar dessert for Gabe, but with the Reese’s Peanut Butter Spread.
