Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

I am so glad today is Thursday. Only 1 day left of work after what seems like the longest week ever! As I’m walking home from work each night, I think about all of the things I want to accomplish before the next day: laundry, exercise, shopping, cleaning, manicure, baking, etc. But then I get home, put on some reality TV and I’m in for the night!

But tomorrow I have big plans. Big. Huge! After work I am going to buy these ADORABLE plates. Are they not the cutest thing you’ve ever seen?! Since they’re $16.00 each I’ve been thinking long and hard about which ONE I’m going to treat myself to. But it would not surprise me if I got to the store and bought all 3, they’re that irresistible. :)

If shopping doesn’t take up all my after work energy then I’m going to bake these cookies too. Or at least that’s my plan. We’ll see if it actually happens! Ever since we first made these cookies I’ve been dying to make them again. I am a lover of chocolate and peanut butter…and I’m a lover of cookies.

Here’s what you’ll need

Whisk together dry ingredients

In a stand mixer combine butter, sugars and peanut butter

Add egg, milk and vanilla and continue to mix

Slowly add in the dry ingredients

Fold in chopped Reese’s

Form into balls , about 2 tablespoons each

Oh man!!

    OMG!!! Those are the cutest plates I have ever seen! Our doxie passed away on mothers day (worst mothers day ever) and seeing those remind me of her because she was red in color too. We just might have to buy some of those plates too! :)

      Aww, I’m so sorry to hear that. I hope she or he lived a long and happy life! I have a red, long-haired doxie and am completely in love with her. I think doxies are the best and seeing their short legs and long bodies puts a smile on my face every time I see one.
      Bad news though…the West Elm I went to was sold out. The lady said they immediately flew off the shelves. I just ordered the one with the fedora online. Free shipping too! :-)
