I am not a candy bar lover. I would rather waist my calories on a huge slice of chocolate cake. But I have to admit that I have a soft spot for Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. As I was strolling through the grocery store through the junk food isle, my eye was drawn to this bad boy….
Of course, I couldn’t resist, because I have no self control. I can happily admit that one. So i decided to smash it on top of these irrisistable peanut butter oatmeal cookies I baked up. Seriously so good. If you can track this candy bar down, try it. I found it in the candy bar isle near the gourmet chocolate bars.
Have an amazingly delicious week!
Loaded Peanut Butter Cookies
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, at room temperature
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 3.4 ounce package instant vanilla pudding mix
1 1/2 cups old fashioned oatmeal
1/2 cup peanut butter chips
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
2 bars Reese’s Milk Chocolate Bar filled with Peanut Butter (see photo)
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside. Using a mixer, cream the butter, peanut butter and sugar until smooth and creamy. Add the eggs, vanilla and pudding mix. Make sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl to get everything incorporated. Slowly add the flour mixture. Stir in the oatmeal, peanut butter chips, and chocolate chips. Scoop extra large amounts of dough onto baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes or until just lightly golden. Take out of the oven and immediately put one square of the Reese’s bar and press down just a bit. Try not to eat the whole batch!
