Picture of Reese's Peanut Butter Cup... Sandwich?!
I normally don't cook anything. In my honest opinion, cereal works for any time of day.

However, it seems as if no one I know has ever had what I call "an elephant sandwich" (I have no idea where the name originated).

If you like Reese's peanut butter cups, chances are that you will soon learn how to make your all-time-favorite sandwich.

Step 1: Get Your Ingredients

The only ingredient where the type really matters is the peanut butter. I recommend creamy, since the effect is so much better. Other than that, all you need is bread, butter and chocolate chips.

If you look at the second picture below, you will notice the amount of each that you need:
- Two slices of bread
- 1/2" from the stick of butter
- 20 normal chocolate chips (or 40 mini chocolate chips)
- Enough peanut butter to spread an even amount on each slice

Step 2: Turn on Your Stove

Turn the burner on medium after placing your skillet/ frying pan on it. Place the butter on the skillet.

When the butter starts melting, you know that the pan is almost hot enough to start your  sandwich.

Step 3: Make the Sandwich

Spread the peanut butter on both slices (one side of each). Let me repeat: both slices.

Put the chocolate chips on the bread in four rows of five (if you have mini chocolate chips, just double up the chocolate chips).

Obviously, just close the sandwich when you're done.

Step 4: Spread the Melted Butter, Start the Sandwich

Get the butter evenly spread on the skillet.

Place the sandwich on the skillet (and put everything away).

Step 5: Grill the Sandwich

Regularly check to make sure the sandwich is grilling properly.

Once a golden brown, the side is done and you can flip the sandwich.

When you flip the sandwich, make sure you adequately coat the fresh side with butter (so it doesn't burn).

Keep checking, again, and make sure it is the same golden brown. When it is, you're done.

I made this today, and it was absolutely amazing. One of the best peanut butter based sandwiches I have ever had.
I remember last year when we bought a 3 pound bag of chocolate chips i would make these and called them the same thing haha, except i never thought of grilling them...which sounds like it would be amazing and i must try it like now
