What’s your favorite Halloween candy?
I think mine has always been a Reese’s peanut butter cups.
But I still think the Reese’s win.
I mean, it’s a Reese’s and they make them into cute pumpkins and christmas trees. Doesn’t get much better.
So let’s just talk about these cups already, because it is Friday (yes!) and I am so ready to shut down.
Basically, I really, really wanted to make a candy thing before Halloween was over this year.
I had lots of ideas, but the kid in me went with the trashed up Reese.
And boy, is it trashed up. But in the very, and I mean very, best way possible.
So first you start by making the pan of cookies.
You have to let them completely chill before you stuff them into the cups. I recommend making the cookies the night before you want to assemble the cups. It’ll make for a quick and easy assembly the next day.
While the cookies are chilling out make the chocolate cups.
It’s very simple, just some melted chocolate brushed into muffin cups.
Next comes the chocolate chip cookie dough.
FYI, these are a cookie lover’s dream!
Next mix together some creamy peanut butter with just a touch of vanilla.
It’s good and really makes the peanut butter layer that much more like a true Reese’s.
And now you layer. Cookie, cookie dough, peanut butter and more chocolate.
So awesome, right?!?
The layers all together are just crazy.
Crazy good, crazy fun and just plain, roll your eyes back and sink your teeth into them good.
And they are BIG. Like really, really, big. A giant loaded Reese. Seriously, I just have no words. Well, no words other than so good and awesome.
Oh, and since I love, love, love giant stacks I tried so hard to stack these things, all cut in half and pretty, but they just would not stay long enough.
So you get the TUMBLE (in a long slow voice) shots. I still decided to include the shots, even though they serve no real purpose, I just thought they were kind of cool.
Halloween candy just went to a whole new level.
