There are all kinds of fancy desserts out there, but nothing puts a smile on my husband’s face more than a really amazing chocolate chip cookie (Yes, I said husband, not kids!!) I on the other hand adore Reese’s Pieces as my treat of choice so I thought why not do a little combo action. Decadent as can be, but totally worth every single calorie. We all deserve to indulge!!!
• 3 cups all-purpose flour
• 1 cup of butter (2 sticks at room temperature)
• 2 teaspoons vanilla
• 1/2 teaspoon of salt
• 3/4 cup white sugar
• 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
• 2 tablespoon chocolate instant pudding mix
• 1 1/4 teaspoon baking soda dissolved in 2 tablespoons of hot water
• 1 cups chocolate chips
• 1 cup peanut butter chips
• 1 cup Reese’s Pieces Candies
• 2 large eggs
1.) Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.
2.) Cream together your sugars and butter (I use an electric mixer or Kitchen Aid; you can in fact do this by hand with a wooden spoon, but your hand will get really tired!!)
3.) Beat in egg one at a time and then add vanilla and baking soda to mixture.
4.) Combine your flour, pudding mix and salt with a fork.
5.) Mix everything all together and finally add in chips and Reese’s. (Don’t over-mix, or your cookies will flatten) and then spoon onto two large ungreased cookies sheets. (An ice cream scooper is a great way to get even amounts.)
6.) Bake for 10-12 minutes (I like my cookies really soft, but feel free to bake longer if you prefer a crispier cookie)
This recipe should make over two dozen cookies!! My recommendation is to freeze half the dough, rolling into cookie sized balls. To do this lie them flat on a cookie sheet in your freezer for a few hours; once they harden, drop them in a ZIPLOCK bag tightly with as much air as possible removed.
