Reeses Pieces Peanut Butter Cookies

There’s a difference between needing and wanting a cookie. Today was one of those days when I needed one. Ok, I pretty much feel like this every Friday, but a bag of Reeses Pieces at CVS ignited my cookie craving, and I just couldn’t get the possibilities out of my mind. I mean, the thought of Reeses Pieces Peanut Butter Cookies popped into my head before I even purchased the candy. I needed to make them happen!

  1. Tina, I am pregnant and love all things reese’s right now… THANK YOU for this post!!! I’m going to go make these stat!

  2. Yummy! Those must have been jammed full of Reese’s pieces since there were only 12 and you used the whole bag…but I’m guessing that perhaps a few were consumed in the process? 😉

  3. I am a special education teacher at a school for children with autism who have severe behavioral issues. This week I’ve gotten punched in the face, spit on, bit, hair pulled, pinched, scratched, and more. If you have ever heard of someone who needs a cookie today, it is me. I NEED one of these cookies!!!!!!!!!

  4. It’s really hard to find Reese’s Pieces here in Australia, but maybe I could try this with the mini sugar coated easter eggs I just bought!

  5. I think I might be Reese’s biggest fan. No exaggeration.
    Try the new minis. They’re a perfect mix of pb and chocolate for being so small!

  6. I’m not normally a cookie monster but these look delicious! I will definately be trying these. I attempted to make the peanut buttery bars but they didn’t seem to turn out. Are they typically sweet or not really? I used PB2 instead of peanut butter. Maybe I should have went for the real deal. Great site! I look forward to reading your blog every day!
